Donald Trump is leading in South Carolina by a wide margin, including coming in several percentage points ahead of longtime Sen. Lindsey Graham in his own state, a new Monmouth University poll shows.

Trump netted 30 percent of the 453 likely South Carolina voters polled, with Ben Carson, his closest challenger for the GOP presidential nomination, receiving 15 percent.

Graham, in comparison, received just 4 percent of the sample, which carried a margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 percent.

"Political experience is not a particularly valuable commodity this primary season," Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement, pointing out that Trump and Carson were the only two to receive double-digit percentages in the survey, which was released Monday.

Graham's favorability ratings also suffered in the poll. He received just a 35 percent favorable rating, compared to 58 percent for Trump.
