If Rubio would have dropped out a month ago, we might have a very different outcome today…

Marco Rubio’s loss is Ted Cruz’s gain, a new poll shows.

The Texas senator will benefit most from Rubio’s exit from the presidential race, according to new Morning Consult polling.

Among 412 Rubio supporters polled, 47 percent support Cruz as a second choice.

Twenty-seven percent of respondents said they would back Ohio Gov. John Kasich if Rubio dropped out and only 13 percent of Rubio backers said they’d support front-runner Donald Trump.

Nine percent said they’d vote for someone else and 5 percent don’t know.

Morning Consult interviewed 8,732 registered voters from March 11 to 15, including 3,372 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. Via: NY Post
