Good news for team Trump! The GOP front-runner enjoys a sizable lead in Florida and Ohio over Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich, as Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski pointed out in this tweet:

In Ohio, Trump holds 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%.
And in Florida, Trump holds 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.
But it’s not all good news. According to that same poll, Donald Trump loses to Hillary Clinton in both swing states with the other GOP candidates doing better:
And in the general election, Clinton would start with an advantage over Trump in both states, leading in Florida and Ohio by 7 percentage points.
She tops Cruz by 9 in Ohio and runs 2 points ahead of Rubio there. In Florida, though, Rubio tops Clinton by 4, and she’s down 1 in a matchup with Cruz.
