BOSTON, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- A new poll shows Donald Trump leading a more pared-down GOP field with 50 percent of the vote in Massachusetts, giving him a 34-point lead over second-place Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
At 16 percent, Rubio maintains a distant second place in the Bay State, which holds its Republican primary on March 1, according to the Emerson Polling Society poll.
Dr. Ben Carson earned just 2 percent.
Massachusetts is one of 12 states with a Republican primary on Super Tuesday. According to The New York Times, Trump and Cruz go into Super Tuesday with the most cash on hand.
