Donald Trump’s presidential campaign keeps steamrolling ahead, and he’s crushing his Republican rivals in terms of popularity — even in their home states.

A survey by on Tuesday found Trump leading two of his GOP rivals that call Florida home: Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Sen. Marco Rubio.

Trump led the pack with 26% of the vote among Republican primary voters in the state, followed by 20% for Bush, and 10% for Rubio.

The pollster’s results haven’t been particularly great in the past. In 2012, the group polled a large number of races and missed the mark widely in almost every race, often skewing toward the Republican side.

However, this is just one of many polls in recent weeks that have showed Trump pulling ahead of his GOP running mates. A Monmouth University poll showed Trump ahead two-to-one over Bush in New Hampshire, and an ABC News/Washington Post national poll showed Trump leading the pack with 24% support among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.
