The Hill reports a major development in the race for President.
Trump holds a 33-point lead over his closest competitor, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), in a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday morning, one day before ballots are cast on Super Tuesday.
Rubio has 16 percent support in the new poll, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with 15 percent, Ben Carson with 10 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 6 percent.
Trump and Rubio gained 8 points apiece since a similar poll in late January, while Cruz lost 4 points.
Trump holds a more narrow 15.8-point lead over Cruz, 35.6 to 19.8 percent, in a RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Rubio then follows in third place with 17.4 percent support.
Super Tuesday is today and the polls close shortly. So we will see how well the actual polls reflect the national opinion polls.
One other point of particular importance
“Pollsters also found that GOP voters are typically loyal toward their preferred candidate. About 68 percent say they “definitely support” their favorite, contrasted by 32 percent who “might change” their minds,” The Hill continued.
Are you excited about these results? Or are you supporting a different candidate?
