Updated Odds: Bush Finally up; Cuomo, Christie and Jindal Continue Downward Trend; Casrson, Sanders, Kasich up

Hillary Clinton continued to have a comfortable lead at 41.7%, flat to last week.

Jeb Bush continues to be in second but reversed a four week streak of declines improving from 11.0% to 11.2%. He increases his lead over Marco Rubio to 5.8%.

Many of the top candidates from a year ago who have not declared are now seeing big declines:

-Chris Christie who was the second leading candidate last May is now in 7th place and is down to 1.6% this week.

-Bobby Jindal got as high as 9th place but has failed to gain any traction and is now down to 18th place this week at 0.8%.

-Andrew Cuomo got as high as 9th place and was in 12th place just 4 weeks ago.  He comes in this week at 31st place at just 0.7%.

On the other hand, candidates that were considered long shots and have thrown their name in have  moved up dramatically:

-Ben Carson announced this week and he jumped from 22nd place to 17th place.  He was as low as 45th place last summer.

– Bernie Sanders who announced the prior week and as a result debuted at 42nd place improved to 27th place this week.

– John Kasich seems to be the next person to declare.  He has now moved up into 9th place after being in 34th place just three weeks ago.
