Updated Odds: Clinton, Bush with Big Gains; Rubio Slips; Sanders in Top 5; Trump, Jindal Rise; Christie, Webb Enter Race

Hillary Clinton had a good week as she rose 0.7% to 42.6%, the highest she has been since August 2014.

He closest competitor Jeb Bush also had a good week improving by 0.5% to 12.5%.  That is the highest Bush has been.  Bush’s rise seemed to come at the expense of Marco Rubio who remains in 3rd but is down from 6.3% to 5.9%.

Bernie Sanders continues his hot streak, as he improves by 0.8% to 2.7%.  This was enough for him to get into the top 5, leap frogging Rand Paul. (Sanders added to graph of top 10 see link below)

Donald Trump continued to make headlines and move up polls which helped him move from 18th place to 14th place.

Bobby Jindal also had a good week moving from 25th place to 21st place. Jindal had been sliding recently.  This is the highest he has been since end of May.

There were two new entries in the race.  Chris Christie finally declared.  That did not move him in the standings, as he remained in 10th place.  Christie was once the front runner for the Republican nomination before “Bridgegate” hit.   He was as high as 5th overall in February.

Jim Webb declared and actually dropped in the standings as he was jumped over by Trump.  Webb is in 17th place overall.  Webb has been between 14th and 20th since March.
