Poll: Trump Leading in Florida, Beating Locals Jeb, Rubio

"Bush, down in the toilet, can you believe it?"

A new poll released on Wednesday shows presidential candidate Donald Trump with a huge lead in Florida.  Trump even leads the two Florida candidates running for the GOP nomination, former Governor Jeb Bush and Senator Marco Rubio, with massive margins.

Trump garnered about 48% of the support in Wednesday's poll. He was trailed by US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with 16%, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) with 11%, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) with about 10%.

Florida holds its primary on March 15, after Super Tuesday.

Trump addressed the latest Florida poll at a campaign rally in Iowa on Wednesday.

"Bush, down in the toilet, can you believe it?" Trump said. "Look, the guy spends — now he's up to $79 million. I wouldn't even mention it, but it's a lot of these ads against me. He does these negative ads against me, otherwise I wouldn't mention it, maybe I would. But $79 million and he's — bing! — down in the basement."

"I talk about polls. I'm like obsessed with polls," he added.
