Trump still in lead with 29%, big jump from Marco Rubio to his highest numbers ever in New Hampshire at 19%, After winning in Iowa just 4 days ago, Ted Cruz slips to 5th place in this poll from Suffolk/BG, 3 points behind Jeb Bush
Donald Trump has a 10-point lead among GOP presidential candidates, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio closing in, a new poll of New Hampshire voters shows.
The Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll released Friday also finds one-third of GOP voters say they could still change their mind by Tuesday's first-in-the-nation primary.
Trump: 29 percent Rubio: 19 percent Ohio Gov. John Kasich: 13 percent Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: 10 percent Sen. Ted Cruz: 7 percent
What a difference a caucus makes," David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Suffolk University, tells the Globe.
"By exceeding expectations in Iowa, Marco Rubio is converting likability to electability even more so than Ted Cruz, who, like many conservative Iowa winners of the past like Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, can’t seem to convert an Iowa win into a major showing in New Hampshire."
