Updated Weekly Odds: Rubio Challenging Bush; O’Malley and Bloomberg up; Perry, Chafee, Graham Announce

Hillary Clinton continued to be steady at the top at 41.8%.  She has been between 41% and 42% the last 8 weeks.

Marco Rubio continues to close the gap on Jeb Bush for second place.  Rubio gained 0.2% to 5.9% while Bush fell 0.5% to 10.8%.  The 4.9% gap between the two is the smallest since the end of 2014.

Martin O’Malley moves up from 10th place to 7th place passing up Joe Biden for 3rd place among Democrats.  His 1.4% is still significantly behind Warren’s 2.1%.  Warren remains strong in 6th place overall despite stating over and over again that she is not running.

Another week means more people throwing their names in the hat:

Rick Perry announced and moves up from 30th place to 26th place.  Perry got as high as 4th place last summer as he tried to capitalize on the border crisis and before his indictment.

Lincoln Chafee announced for the Democrats and makes his debut on the list at #27

Lindsey Graham announced for the Republicans and makes his debut at #32

Michael Bloomberg moves up to 17th place from 20th place as anti-Clinton Democrats look for a realistic alternative.  Bloomberg may also run as an independent.  This is the highest Bloomberg has been.

Bernie Sanders moves up to the 21st spot from 27th, the highest he has been.

Bobby Jindal drops once again to 23rd place from 17th place.  Jindal was a top 10 candidate last summer but the fiscal mess in his home state has taken a lot of the wind out of his sail.
