Polls: Trump Slaughtering Rubio In Florida, And Ahead Of Kasich In Ohio

Share

A raft of new polls in the past few days show Donald Trump remaining on track for big victories in next week’s big-state contests.

Any potential Trump victories in Florida or Ohio would absolutely force home-state candidates Marco Rubio and John Kasich out of the race, respectively — leaving Ted Cruz as the remaining anti-Trump GOPer.

Also, keep in mind that the Republican field is now shifting into winner-take-all states: if Trump were to win these by even a single vote statewide, he would get all of their delegates. And if he’s winning these states by landslides, he gets the intangible benefit of a huge boost of great publicity and an increase in his supporters’ morale — and a corresponding plummet for anyone else.

The latest polls in Florida:

  • Fox News: Trump 43 percent, Rubio 20 percent, Cruz 16 percent, and Kasich 10 percent.
  • Associated Industries of Florida is the closest one: Trump 33 percent, Rubio 27 percent, Cruz 16 percent, and Kasich 12 percent.
  • Quinnipiac University: Trump 45 percent, Rubio 22 percent, Cruz 18 percent, and Kasich 8 percent.
  • CNN: Trump 40 percent, Rubio 24 percent, Cruz 19 percent, and Kasich 5 percent.
  • University of North Florida: Trump 36 percent, Rubio 24 percent, Cruz 16 percent, and Kasich 9 percent.
  • SurveyUSA: Trump 42 percent, Rubio 22 percent, Cruz 17 percent, and Kasich 10 percent.
  • Monmouth University: Trump 38 percent, Rubio 30 percent, Cruz 17 percent, and Kasich 10 percent.

And the latest polls in Ohio:

  • The newest release from Fox News is the first outfit to have Kasich ahead in his home state: Kasich 34 percent, Trump 29 percent, Cruz 19 percent, Rubio 7 percent.
  • Quinnipiac University: Trump 38 percent, Kasich 32 percent, Cruz 16 percent, and Rubio 9 percent.
  • CNN: Trump 41 percent, Kasich 35 percent, Cruz 15 percent, and Rubio 7 percent.
  • And from Democratic-aligned firm Public Policy Polling: Trump 38 percent, Kasich 35 percent, Cruz 15 percent, and Rubio 5 percent.

And as a bonus, there is also a SurveyUSA poll in North Carolina: Trump 41 percent, Cruz 27 percent, Rubio 14 percent, and Kasich 11 percent. This state, however, is still voting proportionally.

      It turned out to be more of a circular firing squad than a party.

      Republicans are waaaaaay more tribal than anyone and they will rally around the Republican Party. I heard a segment on “This American Life” where a medical doctor ticked off the long list of disagreements with GWB’s second election, but admitted he would vote Republican. He didn’t know why, just said he would.

        How’d you like to have that dumba$$ practicing medicine on you?

    Based on these same polls, Trump should have won every primary by over 70% of the vote. So far, that hasn’t happened either.

    Can’t say I am entirely unhappy with Rump stomping on Little Marco. Never liked that guy in way shape or form.
