Here’s a new national poll out today that show the race for 2nd place to be a virtual tie between Cruz and Rubio, who are still about 10 points behind The Donald:

RASMUSSEN REPORTS – With tomorrow’s New Hampshire primary a make-or-break event for several of the candidates, Donald Trump still holds a double-digit lead nationally over his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are in a virtual tie for second place.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds that Trump earns 31% support, followed by Rubio with 21% and Cruz at 20%. The rest of the candidates are in mid- to low single digits.

Six percent (6%) say they would vote for Ohio Governor John Kasich if the GOP primary in their state were held today, while Dr. Ben Carson is next with five percent (5%) support and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is at four percent (4%). New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, the one candidate excluded from Saturday night’s debate in New Hampshire, each earn three percent (3%) of the vote. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and another three percent (3%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The national telephone survey of 725 Likely Republican Primary Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports on February 3-4, 2016. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

The race is clearly tightening up with both Rubio and Cruz in the hunt for first place Trump. Despite what happens in New Hampshire tomorrow night, I expect it will remain a three man race.
