Latest Wisconsin poll shows Ted Cruz ahead of Donald Trump by 10 points

March 30, 2016

  The latest Wisconsin poll has been released and it shows Ted Cruz leading Donald Trump by 10 points at 40%-30%. Here is more:

The latest poll, released on Wednesday, shows Ted Cruz with 40 percent support among likely Republican voters, followed by Donald Trump with 30 percent support. Ohio Governor John Kasich is a strong third, with 21 percent support. The poll, of 471 likely Republican voters, was conducted March 24-28.

The Republican poll was conducted before Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker formally endorsed Cruz for the GOP nomination.

  This is a remarkable turn around in a relatively short period of time: in a poll conducted last month Donald Trump led Ted Cruz, who was in third place, by a margin of 11 points with 30% of the vote while Ted Cruz had the support of only 19% of the voters. Marco Rubio was in second just one point ahead of Ted Cruz.

    Because this latest poll was conducted after Donald Trump’s  childish attack on Ted Cruz’s wife that this is the reason for the turn around but I feel it is most likely do to the Republican field being much smaller than it was one month ago. Most of the voters who were supporting anyone other than the billionaire businessman have gone to either Ted Cruz or John Kasich as is evident by Donald Trump’s static poll numbers in the state. His attack on Ted Cruz’s wife has not cost him any support.

  Now if John Kasich, who has been mathematically eliminated from earning enough delegates before the convention, would drop out we would have a real race on our hands, but it appears as if he has struck a deal with Donald Trump in order to split the vote and become his running mate if successful.

    They all want a brokered convention, so Hillary can be elected. The Go Along to Get Along party needs to be handed it’s head in Nov.

      Yes they do, they would rather see an establishment Democrat as President than a non-establishment Republican. They are all on the same side and they are working this little play masterfully.

    Kasich is dreaming, if he thinks Trump will chose him. He represents everything Trump has been against. A ticket with two white guys will not work, Period!

    Cruz is not a conservative. He has many people fooled. Evangelicals do not vote as a block, so they represented a small minority of the party. The electorate is center right. Cruz and his wife worked in the Bush administration and he supported the nomination of SOCTUS Chief Judge Roberts. He will continue the neocon policies of war. The RNC has promised him something if he stays in the race and causes a brokered convention.

    A three candidate presidential election would be fun to watch. Hillary on the Left, Cruz on the Right and Trump in the middle.

      I don’t think he will pick him either but I think he might have said something to Kasich that has him believing he will. Kasich is still in this race for some ulterior motive, it is not because he believes he can win.
