GOP frontrunner Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to blast Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who backs Trump’s competitor Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), for saying Trump “polls like Lucifer” with women and Hispanics.
I watched Sen. Graham @FaceTheNation. Why don't they say that I ran him out of the race like a little boy, and in the end he had no support?

On CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, Graham stated, “There’s been a lot of talk about Lucifer. I think Lucifer may be the only person Trump could beat in a general election.”
He added, “But when it comes women and Hispanics, Trump polls like Lucifer, so this [primary] is a contest between conservatism and Trumpism, and Trumpism will get creamed in the ballot box.”
Graham’s reference to Lucifer comes after former House Speaker John Boehner said Cruz was “Lucifer in the flesh” last week.
“John and I are very close friends,’ Graham explained of Boehner. “But, he’s embracing Donald Trump, and I am not. Why? Because I believe Donald Trump’s foreign policy is isolationism. It will lead to another 9/11.”
Graham also said he believes Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton would defeat Trump in the general election.
“She will mop the floor with Donald Trump,” Graham said.
