GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is beating fellow GOP rival – former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – in his own state, according to a new report by the SaintPetersBlog.
In light of the poll results, Trump told Breitbart News, ” I have always loved Florida, what a great honor.”
In fact, Florida has also long loved Trump, it appears. Trump won two Statesman of the Year Awards in both 2012 and 2015 from the Tampa Bay GOP.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker came in at third place, and Florida’s very own Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) came in fourth.
“He’s followed by Dr. Ben Carson at 5 percent, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and John Kasich at 4 percent, and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) at 3 percent. 16 percent are unsure or are supporting another candidate not named in the survey,” noted the blog.
The poll surveyed 1,902 likely Republican primary Florida voters. It was conducted July 18th to 28th with a plus or minus margin of error of 2.2 percent.
