Five undecided South Carolina voters told Fox News they would support former President Donald Trump following a town hall in an interview that aired Wednesday.

Trump is leading former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley 63% to 35% among those who are “very likely” to vote in Saturday’s Republican primary, a Suffolk University/USA Today survey found. All five voters responded affirmatively when hosts Laura Ingraham and Raymond Arroyo asked if Trump changed their mind during the town hall(RELATED: ‘He’s Been So Great’: Trump Singles Out Audience Member As Possible VP Pick During Town Hall)


“Donald Trump, if I could summarize what he said in one word, it was just ‘strength.’ He had a way about him that demanded attention. He really sounded like the kind of leader I would want to vote for,” one voter said.

Trump’s critics, including Haley, have expressed the opinion that Trump will engage in “retribution” against his opponents. During the town hall, Trump asserted that “success” will be his “revenge.”

One voter particularly appreciated this line.

“That right there is the line I’ve been wanting to hear from Donald Trump this whole election cycle,” he said. “Is he running again to get revenge, to pay back, who do we have to attack, the vendetta? No, it’s my policies, my platform, my results, that will be my revenge.”

Ingraham noted Trump has a sense of humor and asked him if that would be visible on the campaign trail during the town hall.

“We have a country that’s dying,” Trump responded. “We have a country that’s – it’s a failing nation. I say it in my speeches, it’s a failing nation. We have a nation in decline. We are a nation in decline. I just don’t think it’s a subject that we are smiling too much about.”

The voter also appreciated this response by Trump.

“He answered all of my questions about getting the fentanyl and all the drugs out over the border,” another voter said. “I think he’d be great to strengthen the homeless and try to help solve that.”

Another voter expressed worries about Trump’s “tone” before the town hall but seemed persuaded afterward.

“Today he was so likable,” he said. “Guys, when he walks into a room, he owns the room. It’s obvious everybody liked him. I couldn’t help myself but cheer for him. I am standing in front of a president. And it’s very exciting for me … It’s hard to not like President Trump.”
