Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has boosted his lead over GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump in a new survey of Texas primary voters.

The Dixie Strategies Poll taken Monday, and released Wednesday, shows Cruz ahead of the real estate billionaire by more than 8 percentage points statewide.

At the end of January, Cruz was leading by 5 percentage points.

Here's the latest breakdown:

  • Trump: 25 percent
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: 15 percent
