Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) has cut Donald Trump’s lead in Florida to single digits, according to a Monmouth University Poll released Monday.

Trump leads Rubio by 8 points in the senator’s home state, 38 percent to 30 percent. Earlier polls show Trump with a double-digit lead.

A Public Policy Polling survey released last month showed Trump with a 20-point lead. A One America News Network and Gravis Marking poll released last month also showed Trump with a 20-point lead.
