New poll shows Ted Cruz with a huge lead over John Kasich in Utah

March 20, 2016

 Utah is holding its caucuses on Tuesday and according to this story Ted Cruz has a huge lead over John Kasich, with Donald Trump a very distant third.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has zoomed to a commanding lead in Utah’s GOP caucuses, according to a new poll released Saturday. It also gave a glimpse into how frustrated the state’s Republicans are with Donald Trump’s candidacy.

The Y2 Analytics survey shows Cruz with 53 percent support among likely Republican caucus-goes and if that matches Tuesday’s caucus vote, he’d win all of the state’s 40 GOP delegates.

Coming in second is Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 29 percent, while Trump, the national front-runner, was a distant third at 11 percent.

  Utah has a little bit of a different system when it comes to allotting delegates to the convention: if a candidate wins 50% of the vote or more he wins all the delegates but if no candidate earns 50% of the vote the delegates are awarded proportionally.

If Kasich or Trump are able to cut into Cruz’s lead, dropping him below 50 percent of the vote, they’d be able to snag some of the delegates, which would then be awarded proportionately.

  For the life of me I cannot figure out the sudden support for John Kasich, I cannot believe all of Marco Rubio’s supporters have decided to vote for John Kasich but perhaps most of them have. Whatever the reason, a second place finish well ahead of Donald Trump will keep him in this race and he will continue to split the anti-Trump vote. This will ensure Donald Trump is the Republican nominee but perhaps that is the plan

    Here is for crossing my fingers. Only because they are trying to ram kasich down our throats.Other than that, I am clueless.

      He is the new, and last, true establishment candidate so the leaders are supporting him but I cannot understand why the voters are falling for it.

    The problem is, is that American’s think their votes count!
