Poll: Trump crushing GOP field in Massachusetts

Donald Trump is crushing his Republican rivals in Massachusetts where nearly half of GOP voters support his bid for the presidency.

The billionaire business mogul, who held a campaign rally in Tyngsborough, Mass. last week, is up to 47.8 percent support in the New England state, according to a new Emerson College poll.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was the only other candidate to score double digits, earning 13.9 percent support in the same poll. Still, Carson trails Trump by 34 percentage points in the Bay State. Trump and Carson top the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings at first and second place, respectively.

Meanwhile, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio comes in third among Massachusetts Republicans with 11.8 percent, followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (7.1 percent), businesswoman Carly Fiorina (6.5 percent) and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (5.1 percent). The remaining GOP candidates earn about 2 percent or less.
