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