Florida Poll: Trump 48%, Cruz 16%, Rubio 11%, Bush 10%

Trump trouncing Marco Rubio by 37 points, Jeb Bush by 38 points in their home state of Florida.


Donald Trump has blown away the competition in Florida with an astounding 32-point lead over his closest rival Sen. Ted Cruz in the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, a new Florida Atlantic University poll reveals.

The billionaire developer's support in the Sunshine State has rocketed to 48 percent, with Cruz in second place with a paltry 16 percent, according to the poll of Florida Republicans.

Just as stunning is the collapse of support for Florida's hometown boys, Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush.

Rubio weighs in with just 11 percent, having dropped 7 points since the last poll.

And Bush, once considered to be a shoo-in for the nomination, is in fourth place with just 10 percent, according to the poll. That's virtually unchanged from a November poll.
