Landslide in New Jersey Trump by 27
New Alabama Poll; With the so-called “SEC primary” quickly approaching, Donald Trump has a 17-point lead over his closest rival in Alabama, according to a new poll.
Master Image, a Birmingham-based Republican consulting firm, released a poll Wednesday showing Trump with 36 percent, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio
at 19 percent, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz
at 12 percent, former neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 8 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 7 percent. Seventeen percent of those polled are still undecided.
On Tuesday, a slew of states will go to the polls, including in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma and Virginia. Trump is leading in many of these states; the day is also especially important to candidates like Cruz, whose strategy has long included winning a lot of delegates in the South.
“Trump’s popularity in Alabama continues the trend we see elsewhere,” said Joe Sanders, the president of Master Image. “Trump’s numbers in Alabama appear to be a few points lower than other southern states, but in line with what should happen on March 1, considering almost one in five voters remain undecided.”

Pollster Pat McFerron told NewsOK that the top three candidates are in a statistical tie among reliable GOP primary voters, but Trump wins among voters who have rarely voted in previous Republican primaries.
“Trump performs best among lower income households, those over 45 and those with a history of rarely voting in Republican primaries, though there is a statistical tie among the top three candidates among the most reliable primary voters,” McFerron said.
