Donald Trump continues to lead the GOP Presidential field in New Hampshire, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio surging to 2nd.  Ted Cruz, John  Kasich, and Jeb Bush round out the top 5.

According to The Hill:

“Donald Trump holds a double-digit lead over the Republican presidential field in New Hampshire, but Marco Rubio has surged into second place, a new poll finds.

A CNN-WMUR survey released on Thursday tested Republicans in New Hampshire in the days before and after Monday’s Iowa caucuses, and found Trump’s support holding steady at 29 percent…

Rubio received 11 percent support in the two CNN-WMUR surveys taken shortly before the caucuses, and he has now shot up to 18 percent, putting him in second place.

Ted Cruz, the winner of the Iowa caucuses, is at 13 percent in the new poll, essentially unchanged from his standing before the caucuses.

Rubio has been scrapping with a pack of the more centrist candidates, including Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Chris Christie, who have all staked their campaigns on strong finishes in the Granite State.

But he has pulled away from the others in the latest CNN-WMUR survey, with Kasich taking 12 percent support, Bush taking 10 percent, and Christie falling from 9 percent to 4 percent.”
