10/6/15, "Poll: Rubio Surpasses Bush, Trump Still On Top," Morning Consult Poll, Reid Wilson

"Real estate mogul Donald Trump retains his commanding lead in the race for the Republican presidential race, a new poll finds, even though many voters say they view the bombastic billionaire in an unfavorable light. Trump takes 31 percent of the vote in the new Morning Consult poll, easily outpacing retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s 13 percent. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) finishes in third place, at 10 percent, followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), at 7 percent.

The survey marks the first time Rubio draws more support than Bush.....

Former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina...sits in fifth place, with 6 percent, just ahead of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) 5 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) are tied at 4 percent, followed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) at 3 percent....

The Morning Consult tracking poll surveyed 1,983 registered voters between October 2-5, for a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. A subsample of 807 self-identified Republicans and Republican-leaning independents carried a margin of error of plus or minus 3.45 percentage points. The subsample of 827 self-identified Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents carried an identical margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points." image from Morning Consult poll
