Trump has huge lead in new Georgia poll

A new poll from WSB-TV in Atlanta shows Donald Trump has a large lead on the GOP presidential field in Georgia.

Trump tops the Landmark/Rosetta Stone survey with the support of 43 percent of respondents. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finishes second at 16 percent, followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 11 percent, while no other candidate received double-digit support. Approximately 13 percent of respondents remain undecided.

Ben Carson's support plummeted in Georgia in recent months. He dropped to seven percentage points in the new poll from 18 percent in a September survey. Bush dropped three percentage points since September, while Trump gained 12 percentage points and Cruz's support doubled.
