Although there was no changes in the positioning of the top 10 candidates, the odds themselves changed.
Hillary Clinton continued to expand her enormous lead from 64.5% to 65.1%. That is the 12th straight week of increase starting at just 39.2% back in the beginning of October.
Marco Rubio continues to be in second but had a big drop from 11.7% to 10.7%. He has dropped for three straight weeks when he peaked at 12.2%.
Rubio’s drop was captured entirely by Ted Cruz, who continues in 4th place but gains 1.3% to 4.9%. He remains the hottest candidate in the field having been up for 13 straight weeks from a just 0.8% in the middle of September.
Donald Trump continues to run third at 7.3% up 0.2% from the prior week. He has been fairly steady in the 7% range the last 4 weeks.
Jeb Bush resumed his decline to 2.5% from 2.9%. That is the lowest he has been.
Bernie Sanders remains Clinton’s top competition for the Democrats, but drops once again to 2.3% from 2.5%. He has dropped eight straight weeks since peaking at 6.0%.
Chris Christie seems to be the only other viable candidate (probably because of his polling in NH). He is in 7th place and steady at 1.8%.
The rest of the top 10 seems to be on life support:
Carson drops 0.2% to 0.4% and had dropped for 7 straight weeks.
John Kasich drops 0.1% to 0.3% and has dropped 11 straight weeks.
Carly Fiorina drops 0.1% to 0.3% and has dropped 9 straight weeks.
