New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may top the GOP field among a general audience, but he has competition for the affections of Republican primary voters. Slightly more likely-voter Republicans say they could support native sons Jeb Bush (44 percent), the former governor, and current U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (42 percent), if they were to run than Christie (38 percent).
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky (30 percent), Paul Ryan (28 percent), and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas (24 percent) also have large numbers of voters who say they could support them. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania all have double digit followings as well.
The Florida voter survey of 400 adults was conducted December 1-8 and has a margin of error of 5 percent.
