A new poll shows Marco Rubio may be gaining on GOP Presidential front runner Donald Trump in Florida…

According to The Hill:

“Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has cut Donald Trump‘s lead in Florida to single digits, according to a Monmouth University Poll released Monday.

Trump leads Rubio by 8 points in the senator’s home state, 38 percent to 30 percent.

It’s a significant shift from earlier polls that found Trump with a double-digit lead.

In a Public Policy Polling survey released last month, Trump held a 20-point lead. Similarly, he held in a 20-point lead in a One America News Network and Gravis Marketing poll released last month.

Florida is a must-win state for Rubio, who would not have much of a path to the GOP nomination without a victory in his home state.

The loss would also be a significant blow to Trump, given that Florida is a winner-take-all state awarding 99 delegates.
