Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is still holding the lead in New Hampshire, coming in on top of a new poll of potential voters in New Hampshire with Sen. Marco Rubio in second.

A new WMUR Granite State Poll shows Bush at 15 percent followed by Rubio at 12 percent. But Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is close behind at 11 percent and Rand Paul comes in at fourth place with 10 percent.

Sen. Ted Cruz leads the second tier of candidates with six percent of support in the state followed by Donald Trump, Rick Perry, and Ben Carson.

New Jersey governor Chris Christie is now polling at three percent, below Carly Fiorinia at four percent.

Bush is leading the contest for support, but lags behind top Republican contenders in favorability.

Rubio leads net favorability ratings in the state with 60 percent of likely GOP primary voters, followed by a 51 percent rating for Paul and a 50 percent rating for Walker.

According to the poll, Bush’s favorability rating is at 45 percent with an unfavorability rating of 34 percent. Seventeen percent of voters were neutral.
