The latest polls show republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio gaining ground among evangelical leaders.

Christian Today reports that, despite assertions to the contrary, Rubio is the current leader among evangelicals, not outspoken billionaire businessman Donald Trump.
In a monthly survey of 103 evangelical leaders, 53 percent of those polled said Rubio was either their first or second candidate choice.
Rubio’s positive climb in the polls is believed to be due to his strong performance in the recent republican presidential debate.
Southern Evangelical Seminary president Richard Land even went so far as to compare Rubio to John F. Kennedy.
“Many of the candidates running for the Republican nomination are impressive, but Marco Rubio reminds me more of Jack Kennedy every day… Whatever charisma is, he’s got it,” Land said.
After the debate, other candidates also gained ground.
