Poll: Trump soars to nearly 50 percent in Florida

Florida is looking damn good . . . 
Oh, and Trump in winning in a landslide too

Donald Trump has the support of nearly 1-in-2 Republican primary voters in Florida according to a new Florida Atlantic University Poll out Wednesday.

Trump is leading in the state with GOP primary voters by a significant, 32-point margin, with 48 percent. His nearest rival is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 16 percent, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are the only others in double digits, with 11 percent and 10 percent, respectively.

Trump’s lead in that survey has been on a rapid rise since September 2015, when he came in at 32 percent, and support for Rubio and Bush in their home state has gradually declined over the course of the past four months. 

In that September poll Cruz was at 6 percent, Rubio was at 19 percent and Bush held 11 percent of the vote of those surveyed. In November, Trump took 36 percent, followed by Rubio with 18 percent and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 15 percent, who has dropped to 3 percent in the latest poll.  Politico.com

Meanwhile in frozen New Hampshire 
New York businessman Donald Trump, for the first time, has a 20 percentage point lead in the Granite State, according to the latest WMUR/CNN New Hampshire Primary Poll. But U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has supplanted U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida in second place, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has moved up to tie Rubio for third.
Trump has led WMUR’s presidential polling since July, and in each succeeding poll his support has grown.
The latest poll shows him with the support of 34 percent of likely GOP primary voters, up by two percentage points since an early December WMUR/CNN poll. Cruz has jumped from 6 percent in December to 14 percent, while Bush has edged up from 8 percent to 10 percent. At the same time, Rubio has dropped from 14 percent to 10 percent and is in a dead heat with his fellow Floridian for third place.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was third in December at 9 percent, has slipped  downward to 6 percent, where he is now tied with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ohio Gov. John Kasich Christie for fourth place.  WMUR.com
