SUNSHINESTATENEWS – Sen. Ted Cruz is leading the pack in his home state of Texas before the Republican presidential primary, but his fellow GOP candidates Donald Trump and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio are both closely nipping at his heels, polling only a few points behind him.

There’s less than a week left until the GOP primary in Cruz’s home state, and the latest poll of the potential Republican presidential nominees finds Cruz with a slight lead in the race.

According to the Emerson Polling Society’s latest survey released Wednesday, Cruz takes 29 percent of the vote, slightly edging out Trump and Rubio, but only by a few percentage points.

Donald Trump, the current GOP frontrunner, took 28 percent of likely primary voters, while Rubio, who bested Cruz in South Carolina over the weekend, trails only four points behind at 25 percent.

The poll has other troublesome implications for Cruz.

Cruz’s favorability rating is less than Rubio’s, coming in at 56 percent favorable and 41 percent unfavorable.
