Updated Odds: Clinton Increases Lead; Rubio and Trump Continue Gaining Ground on Bush; Bloomberg Rumors Have Him in Top 10

For the second straight week Hillary Clinton improves.  She was up 0.6% to 39.8%.  That widened the gap slightly over her Democratic rivals.

Joe Biden continued to improve.  He gained 0.5% to 8.2% and is still in 3rd place.

Bernie Sanders also improved.  He gained 0.3% to 5.3% and continued to be in 6th place overall.

On the Republican side, Jeb Bush continues to be in 2nd place overall but for the 3rd straight week his odds declined.  He drops 1.2% to 9.7%.  In those three weeks he has lost 3% and now has both Marco Rubio and Donald Trump right on his heels.

Rubio was up again, this week by 0.5% to 7.7%.  He is still in 4th place overall.

Trump was up for the first time in 4 weeks.  He improved 0.4% to 7.1%.  He remains in 5th place.

Michael Bloomberg was the biggest mover after speculation (mostly from an interview with hedge fund manager Bill Ackman) he may be running.  Bloomberg tripled his odds to 1.5%.  That was enough to move him from 16th place to 10th place.  He has moved up 3 weeks in a row from 34th place into the top 10.
