Updated Weekly Odds: Rubio and Sanders hot and Christie Cold. Chafee and Pataki Not Gaining Traction

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush continued to be one and two at 41.9% and 10.8% respectively.

Marco Rubio continued his hot streak closing in on Bush.  He improved from 5.9% to 6.2% and has cut Bush’s lead from 6.0% to 4.6% in just 4 weeks.

Bernie Sanders was by far the hottest candidate moving from 0.7% to 1.5%.  That catapulted him from 21st place to 8th place.  He was in 42nd place just 7 weeks ago. He even leapfrogged Martin O’Malley for 4th among Democrats behind Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden, both of whom are unlikely to run.

While Sanders and Rubio are two of the hottest candidates, Christie continues to be the coldest.  He dropped another 0.2% to 1.1% and from 9th place to 10th place.  Just 10 weeks ago he was double that at 2.2% and 7th place.

Some recent entrants have struggled to gain any ground.  Lincoln Chafee dropped from 27th to 37th place one week after entering.  George Pataki dropped from 43rd to 48th two week after entering.
