Marco Rubio Leads GOP Presidential Poll


It's been less than two weeks since Florida Senator Marco Rubio announced he's running for president, and he's already leading the GOP as the frontrunner.
A Quinnipiac University Poll released Thursday shows the 43-year-old has 15 percent of likely Republican voters; two percent higher than former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and four percent higher than Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker who came in third in the poll at 11 percent.

"The youngest member of the GOP presidential posse moves to the front of the pack to challenge Hillary Clinton whose position in her own party appears rock solid," the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll said in a statement.

A Fox News Poll also found Rubio is leading the pack, just by a hair, and voters say he's the most honest and trustworthy candidate for president. The same poll found Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is the least trustworthy and honest.

Both the Fox News Poll and Quinnipiac University Poll found Rubio has the greatest chance of all the GOP candidates to beat Clinton in 2016.
