Sen. Ted Cruz is the favorite in his home state of Texas for Republicans in 2016, a new poll finds, but any Republican might have a close general election race with Hillary Clinton.

Cruz led all potential candidates for the 2016 GOP primary by at least 12 percentage points, picking up the support of 27 percent of those surveyed in Public Policy Polling’s new poll.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was second, with 15 percent of those surveyed. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul both were chosen by 11 percent, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan 9 percent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry was sixth with 7 percent and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio only got 6 percent.

When each candidate was paired against potential Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, the poll showed some candidates might be in for a tough race. Cruz would beat Clinton 49 percent to 44 percent, the survey found, and Clinton would beat Perry 48 percent to 44 percent.
