Hillary Clinton continued to widen her lead on the field, reaching another high at 61.4% up from 60.5%. She has now improved in eight straight weeks from 39.2%.
Her closest competitor for the White House has become Marco Rubio. Rubio was up again from 11.6% to 12.1%. He has been up in 8 of the last 9 weeks when he was at just 5.8%. He has now been Clinton’s leading competitor for the last 5 weeks.
After struggling a bit, Donald Trump appears to have regained some of his momentum. He improves 0.4% to 6.6% and has been up the last three weeks. He is still below the high he established in mid September at 8.5%.
The other hot candidate is Ted Cruz. Cruz improves 0.4% to 2.5%. That was enough to have him jump over Ben Carson for 6th place, his highest standing in the race. Cruz has been up 9 straight weeks from 0.8% and 13th place in the middle of September.
Several candidates continue their struggle of the lat few weeks. Bernie Sanders was down 0.4% to 4.3%. He remains in fourth place overall but has now been down four straight weeks from 5%.
Jeb Bush’s fall has been even more dramatic and continues. He is down another 0.2% to 3%. He has declined the last 9 weeks from 11.9% and 2nd place to the current 5th place.
Ben Carson appears to have peaked at 6th place and now drops to 7th place. He was down by 0.2% to 2.0% and has been down the last three weeks.
Bobby Jindal chose to drop out of the race this week. He was in 18th place last week and reached a peak of ninth place back in July 2014.
