Cruz's favorable rating starts to recover among GOPers after Cancun trip

The Senator’s favorability rating dropped eight points among Republicans last week from 68% to 60%, but he has recovered four points (64%) this week. His improvement among Independents is even more impressive: after an eight-point decline among Independents (36% to 28% drop last week), he rose back to 34% favorability this week.

Seven in 10 Democrats (71%) continue to have a very unfavorable opinion of the Texas Republican, relatively unchanged from last week (68%). Just 13% of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Cruz this week, compared to 11% last week and 12% the week prior.
