With just two days until the March 15 Republican primary, Donald Trump continues to hold a commanding lead in the Sunshine State.

According to a new CBS News/YouGov survey of likely Republican primary voters, Trump is at 44 percent. Ted Cruz is in second with 24 percent, followed by Marco Rubio with 21 percent. John Kasich rounds out the Republican field with 9 percent.

The survey found 14 percent of Republicans said they might change their mind before they cast their ballot. However, more than 1.1 million Republicans have already voted in the state’s winner-take-all GOP primary.

Rubio has long said he would win his home state, but most polls show the Florida Republican trailing Trump. The CBS News/YouGov survey found 45 percent of Republican primary voters said Rubio was not prepared to be president.

The survey found that 45 percent of Republican primary voters said Republicans should get back Trump and try to win in November if the New York businessman wins additional March primaries.

The CBS News/YouGov Internet survey has a margin of error of 4.8 percent.
