In a Saint Leo University poll of Florida voters, released today, Scott Walker registered 10 percent support, which is significant drop from the 17 percent he had in the PPP poll that I covered earlier this week.  In that PPP poll, Walker was in second place between Bush and Rubio, and this seven point discrepancy puts Walker behind Rubio in this poll. The full results were as follows:

  • Jeb Bush: 31%
  • Marco Rubio: 16%
  • Scott Walker: 10%
  • Ben Carson: 9%
  • Rand Paul: 7%
  • Unsure: 6%
  • Chris Christie: 5%
  • Ted Cruz: 4%
  • Rick Perry: 4%
  • Mike Huckabee: 4%
  • Bobby Jindal: 1%
  • Bob Ehrlich: 1%

Apart from the lower numbers for Walker, and the inclusion of former Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich, the results don’t break new ground. Unfortunately, this poll did not include favorability ratings to compare with the PPP survey.

The group that conducted the poll felt that it represented good news for Marco Rubio:

“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s support (5 percent) for the Republican presidential nomination has eroded from the previous Saint Leo quarterly poll in December 2014 (12 percent), while U.S. Senator Marco Rubio’s potential candidacy gained considerable ground (from 5 percent in December, to 16 percent in March). However, he still trails frontrunner Jeb Bush (31 percent) by double digits (15 points),” commented Saint Leo’s [Frank] Orlando.

Rubio aside, it is clear that Christie’s tailspin continues nationwide, and, despite his supporters’ hopes, a comeback may be entirely out of reach.
