Polls for 2016 presidential election: Cruz takes huge lead over Trump in Wisconsin Republican primary

Donald Trump is going to face a tough fight from Texas Senator and his main competitor Ted Cruz in Wisconsin primary election. Latest polls suggest that Ted Cruz who had a very small or rather negligible lead over billionaire businessman has increased the lead substantially.

While older polls conducted in February and early March suggested a neck and neck fight between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, the recent polls suggest that Ted Cruz’s popularity is increasing in this important state that is going to vote on April 5.

Both Republican and Democratic primary elections will be held simultaneously. While there are three Republican hopefuls in the fray including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, there are two Democratic hopefuls trying to get presidential nomination. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are fighting a tough battle to bag Democratic nomination.

A poll conducted by Marquette on March 24-28 shows Cruz with a 10 percentage point lead on Trump. This shows that Cruz seems to be benefitting from marco Rubio’s exit from the race.

There are chances that Cruz might have increased his lead even further as the poll was conducted prior to Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement of Cruz. The Cruz campaign hopes the combination of the Walker endorsement along with the recent incident with Lewandowski can push Wisconsin voters to support Cruz.

It is important to note that the Marquette poll is the latest and was conducted between March 24-28. It shows that Ted Cruz is backed by 40 percent of the Republican fans followed by Donald Trump who enjoys the support of 30 percent Republicans. John Kasich is backed by 21 percent GOP supporters.
