According to Stu, there are two ways to look at polls --- one is if you like America and the other is if you don't. Unfortunately, the latest poll numbers will make the latter group happier.
Going into South Carolina, the polls show Trump at 35, Cruz at 17.5, Marco Rubio at 15.8, Bush at 15 and Kasich at 14. Ben Carson isn't really a factor in South Carolina.
The first real poll from Nevada also came out which has Trump at 45, Rubio at 19 and Cruz at 17. Jeb Bush has spent $100 million in Nevada, and he's at 1 percent.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
STU: So polls are out and such.
JEFFY: Oh, boy.
STU: And, well, it depends on what you -- like there's different ways to look at them.
PAT: I look at them with my eyes. How do you look at them?
STU: You're about to look at them with your ears because I'm going to read them.
STU: But I will say there are a couple of ways to look at them. One is actually if you like America and the other is if you dislike it.
PAT: I like it.
STU: If you dislike it, these polls look great. They're fantastic. If you like it, yeah, this is not going to be as good for you.
JEFFY: You probably shouldn't look with your ears.
STU: No. You don't want to look with your ears on those.
So basically as we're leading to South Carolina right now, we're looking at about -- polls are very consistent. Donald Trump with a 17- to 18-point advantage. So, again, this would be a monumental all-time political choke if he were to lose this or, really, if it was anywhere close.
JEFFY: Wouldn't that be something?
STU: The question really is kind of coming more between second place. Right now, in the average poll, it's Trump at 35, Cruz at 17.5, Marco Rubio at 15.8. So those two are pretty tight.
Beyond that, really, there's not much going on. Bush has had a couple good polls. He did have one poll where he hit 15 in South Carolina. And, you know, Kasich has one poll where he hit 14. Ben Carson is really not a factor here at all.
But they also released the first real poll of what's going on in Nevada. It goes South Carolina, then Nevada for Republicans. It's the reverse of that for Democrats. Nevada is first.
For Republicans, Trump 45, Rubio 19, Cruz 17. I want to read the rest of them because of the last one. Cruz 7 percent, Kasich 5 percent, Jeb Bush 1 percent. Jeb Bush has spent $100 million, and he's at 1 percent in Nevada
STU: Jebmentum is coming.
JEFFY: Don't start making fun of Gilmentum. Okay. Jeb can't latch on to the strength of Jim Gilmore, I'll tell you that.
PAT: No, you're right. You're right.
STU: Jim Gilmore did get 0 percent in this particular poll.
JEFFY: Well, he decided not to run anymore.
STU: Why, Jeffy?
JEFFY: Move on, Stu. Move on.
STU: I want to give you this, this is a great one. I want to see if you can guess at this. This is a poll from PPP, which is a Democratic polling outfit.
PAT: I don't know it's necessary for you to use that kind of language on this show. I really don't.
JEFFY: We're listening with our ears.
STU: So PPP is known for --
PAT: Oh, my gosh, he did it again.
STU: -- slipping in questions that occasionally might make certain voters look bad. They're a Democratic polling outfit.
PAT: So you're saying the PPP people is a bunch of pee-pee?
STU: Well, it's a legitimate polling outfit, but they'll slip in questions like --
PAT: Like what?
STU: I don't know if they've ever done this particular one, but something like, "Do you believe Obama is a Muslim?" You know what I mean? To see if they can get that, "Well, 20 percent of Republicans have called Obama a Muslim."
STU: You know, they look for those results. So they decided to do this in South Carolina. The question was, "Are whites a superior race?"
PAT: Oh, I like this one. And, of course, those damnable racists, ignorant southern Republicans.
JEFFY: Ninety --
PAT: 98 percent said yes?
JEFFY: Ninety-eight. If it's not --
PAT: Almost 100 percent.
STU: They broke it down by ideology. So are whites a superior race? 7 percent of very conservative voters said yes. That's embarrassing.
PAT: That's embarrassing.
STU: That number is approximately 7 percent too high. 7 percent of very conservative voters said whites were a superior race. Now, somewhat conservative voters, 12 percent said whites are superior race. How about moderate voters? These are the people who are in the middle. They're just looking at the field, and they're saying, "You know what, I don't have a strong opinion on anything."
PAT: So these might be independents?
STU: Centrists, you know. 11 percent of centrists and moderates said whites are a superior race. Now, we get into somewhat liberal. These people obviously are going to be -- it's going to be way lower than the conservative number.
STU: Because these people are enlightened.
PAT: It's got to be under 7 percent. Right?
STU: It's got to be under 7 percent for sure.
STU: Actually 12 percent of somewhat liberal voters said that whites are a superior race. But then you get to very liberal. And this is where it really --
PAT: Well, they are diverse. They're inclusive.
JEFFY: Minus. Negative.
STU: If 7 percent of very conservative voters said that whites are a superior race, that number is going to be way lower for --
PAT: It will be zero. I'm guessing 0 percent.
STU: Again, 7 percent of very conservative voters said whites are a superior race. 33 percent of very liberal voters said whites are a superior race.
JEFFY: My gosh.
PAT: You got to be -- it's 33 percent?
STU: That's amazing. 33 percent. Now, the sample sizes they would say are not big enough.
PAT: Wow. Wow.
STU: But 33 percent --
PAT: That's great.
STU: That is amazing. So next time someone on Facebook or something tells you that you're a racist because you like lower taxes, remind them that 33 percent of very liberal voters think whites are a superior race. There you go. Crazy.
PAT: That is absolutely amazing.
JEFFY: It sure is.
PAT: So what was the overall breakdown? Did they give that number? Overall, how many people thought whites were a superior --
STU: I think it was 10 percent overall.
PAT: Ten. That's pretty small.
PAT: Pretty small.
STU: It's still 10 percent too high.
PAT: It is.
STU: Very small. You'll always have somebody -- we've talked about before --
STU: Around -- anything under 11 percent of voters, you almost can't even count in polls like this. Because 11 percent of voters will believe anything: You know, no one has ever landed on the moon. That Paul McCartney was killed in 1967. That, you know, Elvis is alive today.
You can get 10 percent on almost anything.
STU: So there you go.
