In just few days a new poll shows one unexpected Presidential candidate’s numbers surging. With other candidates dropping from the race and “suspending” their run for Presidency, it seems their supporters are falling into ranks behind Marco Rubio. This is just a small reminder that anything can happen…
According WHDH/UMass Lowell poll, Rubio has surged into second place with 15 percent ahead of Cruz at 14 percent, while Donald Trump maintains a commanding lead in the Granite State at 36 percent. Governors Jeb Bush and John Kasich, who have spent a lot of time in New Hampshire, polled 8 and 7 percent, respectively, with Gov. Chris Christie coming in at 5 percent.
Rubio’s 7 point rise in two days appears to be driven mostly by a loss of support for the three governors in the field, while Cruz likely gained 2 points by chipping away at Trump’s lead.
As reported by Western Journalism, two candidates from the Republican field ended their bid for the nomination Wednesday: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. The latter announced his endorsement of Rubio last night on Fox News.
The 2012 Iowa Caucus winner told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteran Wednesday night, “We decided that we could be better advocates in supporting someone who shared those values and will do better in this race.”
