Updated Weekly Odds: Clinton and Cruz Cool Down; Trump and Sanders Close Gap; Rubio Continues Downward Trend

Hillary Clinton snapped her streak of thirteen straight weeks at the top with a small 0.3% decline to 65.9%. She still leads her next closest competitor by over 55%!

Marco Rubio continues to be in second place but the question is for how long.  He drops for the fifth straight week, down 0.4% to 9.4%.  His lead over the third place candidate, Donald Trump, has shrunk from a high of 5.5% in November to the current 1.5%.

Trump has been doing his part to close the gap as well.  He was up 0.6% to 7.9%.  This was his third straight increase and the highest he has been since the middle of September.

The hottest candidate had been Ted Cruz.  Prior to this week he was up for fourteen straight weeks.  That came to an end as he dropped 0.1% to 5.3%.  He remains solidly in 4th place.

Bernie Sanders, who prior to this week had dropped for nine straight weeks turned it around this week with a 0.3% increase to 2.5%.  He passes Jeb Bush for 5th place.

Due to the drops from the second tier candidates, Michael Bloomberg, who has not announced he is running is now in 9th place at 0.3%.
