A new national poll from Quinnipiac shows a 5-way tie for the lead in a crowded Republican primary field.  Earning 10% support are Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker. As of today, Bush and Walker are not declared candidates. Nine additional Republican hopefuls received at least 1% support. 

The five poll 270toWin average shows Bush with about 13.5% support, with Walker and Rubio each about 1% behind.  Carson and Paul round out the top five.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton received 57%, well ahead of Bernie Sanders who was 2nd at 15%.

Quinnipiac also surveyed general election match-ups between Clinton and eight Republicans.  The former Secretary of State leads all challengers, with Paul and Rubio closest. Each trails Clinton by 4%.
