Q poll Florida: Donald Trump 45, Marco Rubio 22



Q poll of likely Florida Republican voters:

Donald Trump - 45 percent

Marco Rubio - 22 percent

Ted Cruz - 18 percent

John Kasich - 8 percent

“The effort within the Republican Party to stop Donald Trump from winning the presidential nomination appears unlikely to stop him from taking Florida's delegate-rich winner-take-all primary. But that effort might have a better chance of success in Ohio where Gov. John Kasich is giving ‘The Donald’ a tougher run for his money,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

“In the Sunshine State, hometown hero Sen. Marco Rubio is 23 points behind Trump and isn’t even doing much better than Sen. Ted Cruz. Also discouraging for the anti-Trump folks is that Trump voters say they are less likely than those supporting any of the other candidates to change their mind in the closing days.”
