Public Policy Polling recently released a poll of 443 likely Republican voters nationwide. The poll showed a rise in Cruz’s numbers to 16 percent from the 5 percent he had in the last PPP poll. Since the previous poll, Cruz has officially announced his candidacy, and it seems as though his announcement gave his numbers a boost. The new poll places Cruz in the top tier of candidates along with Jeb Bush and Scott Walker. The full results of the poll were as follows:

  • Scott Walker, 20%
  • Jeb Bush, 17%
  • Ted Cruz, 16%
  • Rand Paul, 10%
  • Ben Carson, 10%
  • Not Sure, 8%
  • Marco Rubio, 6%
  • Mike Huckabee, 6%
  • Chris Christie, 4%
  • Rick Perry, 3%

In addition to Cruz’s surge, Rand Paul has also seen a significant increase in support. He now has 10 percent support, up from 4 percent in the last PPP poll.
