Latest Polls for 2016 Presidential Election: Republican front runner Donald Trump losing commanding lead

Billionaire Donald Trump might still be well ahead of his competitors in the Republican nomination, but his lead has markedly shrunk in the last few weeks. To be true, from double digit, his lead over his closest rival Ted Cruz has come down to single digits.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s stock seems to be on the rise. After doing quite well in the Super Tuesday polls, he did remarkably well in Super Saturday primary and caucuses.

It seems that Republicans are trying to regroup behind him against the real estate baron who GOP leadership believes is not well equipped to take on Hillary Clinton or even Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in general elections later this year.

republican debate on fox news last nightLatest polls suggest that Donald Trump continues to lead his rivals nationally in the contest for the Republican presidential nomination. But his hold on the GOP electorate has weakened since the primary season began, and the party is now deeply divided over his candidacy, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Ted Cruz’s acceptability is on the rise and now difference between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is less than ten percent. Trump maintains the support of 34 percent of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, compared with 25 percent for Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, 18 percent for Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and 13 percent for Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Till just a few weeks ago, the difference in Ted Cruz and Donald Trump looked formidable. Trump’s margin over Cruz has narrowed from 16 points in January to nine according to the latest poll. As a succession of Republican candidates quit the race, Cruz’s position has ticked up four points since January, Rubio’s has risen by 7 and Kasich’s grew by 11. Trump’s has dipped by three points, within the poll’s margin of sampling error.
