Voters from across South Carolina descended on the rural town of Walterboro on Wednesday, all hoping to hear from Donald Trump, who is leading in the polls.

On Thursday, a smaller, but equally dedicated crowd sat down in Columbia to hear from Jeb Bush, once considered the establishment favorite.

An even smaller group met Tuesday night in a Baptist church cafeteria in the quiet town of Manning; they conducted a straw poll to find out where the community stood on the candidates.

Here & Now’s Jeremy HobsonĀ stopped in at all three places to talk with voters about their concerns for the country, the primaries and why some candidates are capturing their hearts, while others are turning their stomachs.
