Two new polls are out today and both give Trump a resounding lead over Marco Rubio in the Tuesday’s Florida primary.

Here are excerpts from two different SaintPetersBlog stories:

Donald Trump has 17-point advantage over Marco Rubio in new Florida poll

Donald Trump has a 17-point lead over Marco Rubio going into Tuesday’s presidential preference primary.

According to a new Monmouth University Poll of likely primary voters in Florida, Trump is leading the Republican field with 44 percent support. Rubio is in second with 27 percent of Florida Republicans saying they backed him. Ted Cruz is in third with 17 percent, followed by John Kasich at 9 percent.

“Florida is do or die for the Rubio campaign, but it looks like victory may have slipped from his grasp,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, in a statement Monday.

The poll found that 35 percent of respondents said they had already voted in the Republican primary.

Donald Trump leads Marco Rubio 46 percent to 22 percent in Florida

Donald Trump continues to hold a double-digit lead over Marco Rubio in the Sunshine State.

According to a Quinnipiac poll of likely Florida Republican primary voters, Trump leads the GOP field with 46 percent, followed by Rubio at 22 percent. Ted Cruz is at 14 percent, followed by John Kasich at 10 percent.

The winner-take-all Republican primary is Tuesday.

The survey found that 86 percent of likely Republican voters in Florida said their mind was made up. That number jumps to 91 percent among Trump supporters.

“At least when it comes to this presidential primary, Florida might change its nickname from Sunshine State to Landslide State,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, in a statement Monday. “Sen. Marco Rubio, who has staked his future on winning his home state looks like he’ll soon be toast. He trails GOP leader Donald Trump by more than 20 points with polling through Sunday night.”
