Donald Trump’s momentum is sweeping the Sunshine State, where his poll numbers are so high that he now leads Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s (R) combined percentage.

Hot Air reported that a poll conducted by Florida Atlantic University on Wednesday showed Trump now leads in Florida with 31.5 percent of likely voters, followed by Rubio and Bush with a distant 19 and 11 percent, respectfully.

This is a sharp fall for Bush, and adding insult to injury, his approval numbers were upside down with 4.3 percent more people viewing him unfavorably, than favorably.

Trump also suffers from huge negative ratings, with nearly 23 percent viewing him unfavorably.

Nonetheless, all three Republicans beat the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton during a general election in Florida.
