Donald Trump drew a big crowd of both supporters and protesters at his rally in Las Vegas on Monday night.
The front runner was in Sin City ahead of Tuesday night’s CNN debate - but the event at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort turned ugly after protestors tussled with security.

Things shouted as Black Lives Matter protestor dragged away at Trump rally: "Kick his ass!" "Shoot him!" "Bitch!" "Sieg Heil!"— Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) December 15, 2015
Another protestor dragged out. Man in suit screaming: "He's a Muslim guy! He's a Muslim guy!"— Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) December 15, 2015
At one point as security guards attempted to remove a black man from the event, an attendee was heard saying: “Light the m****f**** on fire!”
As one protestor was being escorted out of the venue, Trump was heard saying: "Bye, bye."

According to Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll: "One good sign for Sen. Cruz in his battle with Trump is that voters view him much more favorably than Trump, meaning that the Texas lawmaker may have a higher potential upside.”
“It has become abundantly clear that Trump is giving his supporters exactly what they want, even if what he says causes the GOP leadership and many Republican voters to cringe,” according to Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute in West Long Branch, New Jersey.
