There are only 19 days to go before the Florida Republican primary, and the GOP front-runner has opened up a surprising 16-point lead over Senator Marco Rubio.

The Quinnipiac poll that shows Donald Trump over Marco Rubio is bound to be a problematic turn for the campaign. The junior senator hasn't won any of the early nominating contests and many reports say that he absolutely has to win in Florida to continue his campaign - and he should, considering he has home-field advantage. A Trump victory in Florida, a swing state, and the 99-delegates that it brings with it, could potentially seal Trump's fate as the party's nominee.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz earned 12% in the poll, Ohio Governor John Kasich earned 7%, and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson earned 4%.

Trump leads among those who cited terrorism, immigration, and the economy as their most important topics. He also won, unsurprisingly, men, according to ABC News.

Surprising everyone, Trump has a chance to win over every other challenger in their home states, with the exception of maybe Ted Cruz in Texas next Tuesday.

Having already won in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada, Trump is leading nearly every demographic group, including a 50% lead on voters who support a candidate with strong leadership. His only misstep was in Iowa, where Ted Cruz won.

The results of the poll in Florida do have a 3.7% margin of error, but that will likely do little to change the results of the election unless there are intense moves in an of the campaigns. There is a push for Donald Trump to release his tax documents, so if that comes to fruition, it could change the landscape.

At this point, however, the race is still between Trump, Cruz, and Rubio.
