Rubio Leaps to #1 in Fox News Poll

Fox News has a new poll on the presidential race that shows Senator Marco Rubio at the top.

The poll was conducted April 19-21 following Rubio’s April 13th presidential announcement.

Other results from the poll found:

Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) comes in second at 12%

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is third at 10%

Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee are tied at 9%

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has 8%

Previously, Rubio was at seventh place in the Fox News poll. The poll taken from March 29 – 31 had Walker leading with 15%.

Mediate writes, “Over those three weeks, Walker and Bush both dropped three points, Huckabee and Cruz both dropped one point and Paul gained one point. But no other candidate could compete with Rubio’s five point jump. The biggest drop belongs to Dr. Ben Carson, who went from third place at 11% to eighth place at 6% over the three weeks.”
