The race for second-place in the GOP presidential primary in South Carolina is narrowing, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tied at 18 percent, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey reported on Monday night by The State newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina.

Businessman Donald Trump still holds a commanding lead among likely South Carolina GOP voters, and appears not to have been hurt by attacking former President George W. Bush over the 9/11 attacks during Saturday's debate, The State reported.

Here are the results:
  • Donald Trump: 35 percent
  • Ted Cruz: 18 percent
  • Marco Rubio: 18 percent
  • John Kasich: 10 percent
  • Jeb Bush: 7 percent
  • Ben Carson: 7 percent
  • Undecided: 6 percent
Rubio has been running third in previous South Carolina polls, and had a better debate performance Saturday than he did a week earlier in New Hampshire.

The poll talked to 897 likely GOP primary voters Sunday and Monday. The poll has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.3 percentage points.
