    Sounds like Trump is coming on strong...

    Cruz still leads with 29 percent of those polled. Trump polled at 28 percent in the new poll. Florida Senator Rubio jumped to a solid third place position at 25 percent. The remaining candidates, Ohio Governor John Kasich and Dr. Ben Carson came in at nine and four percent respectively.

    That was the Emerson poll. The Austin Statesman, a much more accurate poll with lots of experience in all matters Texas, has Cruz by 12 points.

    I think Rubio is coming off as snotty. His voice pitch raises when he argues. He needs to work on that.

    I have read where Cruz has 15 in many polls. But this debate is in Texas right?

    There are several polls showing a dead heat and others showing anywhere from a 7 to 15 lead for Cruz.

    The mods have lost it! They no longer have control. I think that helps Trump.

    Final take?
    Trump takes Florida and Rubio is out. Trump switched to issues and Rubio stuck with personal attacks. BAD idea for LAST debate.

    Trump gains in Texas for the same reason Rubio loses.

    Kasich....Looked good but not given enough air time.
    Trump takes Ohio. Kasich MAY be out.

    Carson cheated on time and questions. Carson out and CNN looks bad.

    Carson AND Rubio quit after next race.
