Call it the tale of two polls. The latest Reuters/Iposos polls shows presidential candidate Donald Trump with a commanding 20 point lead nationally in the Republican race for the nomination. The poll could certainly bolster Trump's position ahead of the party's primary held in South Carolina on Saturday. But not so fast. Trump is not the only one getting good news Wednesday. Sen.

What most polls seem to agree on is that in the upcoming primary in South Carolina Trump will take the lead with Cruz coming in second.
