Rubio Gaining On Bush In FL: Poll


A new poll is good news for Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio.

The latest St. Leo University poll shows Rubio is closing on former Florida Jeb Bush in the Florida Republican Primary battle.

Bush still has 30 percent of the G.O.P. vote, but Rubio now has 24 percent.

The last St. Leo poll in March had Bush at 31 percent and Rubio at just 16 percent.

The poll included 19 potential candidates for the GOP nomination.

The poll also showed that among Florida Republicans, the number one issue facing the nation right now is jobs and the economy.
