A new Texas Tribune poll examines the popularity of some of the biggest stars in the Republican Party and whether they have support from Texas Republicans in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Ted Cruz leads the field with 25 percent of support followed by Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 13 percent and Marco Rubio of Florida at 11 percent.

Perry places fourth at 10 percent while Chris Christie and Paul Ryan are tied for fifth place at 8 percent.

Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum end with 2 percent.

Of course, 21 percent of poll respondents “don’t know” who they support for president, proving that the race is understandably fluid at this point.
