Exit poll results: With Rubio out, where do his supporters go?

Marco Rubio suspended his campaign Tuesday night after he lost his home state of Florida and turned in a disappointing performance in the four other states. Where are his supporters likely to go?

In Missouri, Ohio and North Carolina, Republican primary voters today were asked how they would have voted had they only had a choice between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Nearly six in 10 of Rubio’s voters today said they would have voted for Cruz, while only 15 percent would have gone for Trump. Nearly one-quarter say that they would not have voted if faced with this choice.

Among all voters in these three states - including Trump and Cruz voters themselves - Cruz and Trump would have divided the vote evenly, had they been the only candidates on the ballot.
