Meanwhile in Alabama
(The Hill) - A new poll released Wednesday finds Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump up 17 points on his nearest competitor in Alabama.
The poll conducted by Master Image, a Birmingham, Ala.-based firm, shows Trump with 36 percent support headed into the state’s March 1 primary, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) with 19 percent support and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with 12 percent support.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson places fourth with 8 percent support, followed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 7 percent support.
The poll is consistent with two previous versions, conducted Jan. 25 and Feb. 11, that also showed Trump with 36 percent support.
Rubio’s support has increased by 7 points from January, while Cruz has dropped 5 points over the same span. Cruz has often referred to the SEC primary as his "firewall" in the primary race.Read More . . . .
