Trump holds a 16-point lead over Rubio among likely female voters in the Florida primary and a 32-point lead among men.

The gender gap emerges in Ohio, too, with Trump leading among men by 13 points over Kasich. Women back the Ohio governor over Trump by 7 points.

Several other polls recently have suggested a tight race in Ohio, where 66 delegates are up for grabs, while multiple polls have shown a double-digit lead for Trump in Florida.

The latest survey of 615 likely Florida GOP primary voters has a margin of error of 4 percent, while the survey of 721 likely Ohio GOP primary voters has a margin of error of 3.7 percent. Both were conducted March 8-13 via landlines and cellphones.
