According to Fox News polls, some of Donald Trump's more controversial immigration views contributed to his victory in  the South Carolina Republican primary last night.   Fox News exit polls found that

Close to half of the state’s GOP voters who believe illegal immigrants should be deported turned out for Trump.

Those who are frustrated with the way the federal government operates overwhelmingly appeared to support Trump.

Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration, appeared to reward him in South Carolina tonight, too. As much as 73 percent of the state’s GOP voters agree with that idea – and mostly decided to go for Trump.
