News 2 sent a crew to Cinebarre in Mt. Pleasant for the GOP debate watch party. The crowd filled up a theater and a half with a very involved audience. They brought signs showing support for their favorite candidate, and clapped and cheered when they heard something they liked. The Charleston County Republican Party took a poll of the audience, and that poll had Donald Trump come out on top.
Trump scored 38 votes, closely followed by Ted Cruz with 36. In third place is Marco Rubio with 28 votes. Trailing, Jeb Bush and Ben Carson each earned 6 and Carly Fiorina and John Kasich each received 2.
