Polls for 2016 presidential election: Wisconsin Republican primary will be rather very tough for Trump, Cruz
Who will win Wisconsin GOP primary polls 2016? Till now there doesn’t seem to be a single favorite to win the primary elections in the state that has become very important for all the three Republican hopefuls.
The polls conducted in the state suggest that the fight is very close with most polls showing billionaire businessman Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in a close fight.
As the remaining three Republican presidential hopefuls prepare to put their best foot forward during the GOP town hall tonight, a RealClear Politics poll suggests that Ted Cruz enjoys a minor lead of just .7 of a percentage point on Donald Trump in the latest early polling numbers.
The RealClear Politics poll suggests that Cruz might have benefited from recent endorsements. Cruz received an endorsement from Gov. Scott Walker and hopes that will help him secure a win in Wisconsin. There are 42 delegates at stake in the April 5 primary. In the meantime the RealClear Politics keeps a running average of the Wisconsin polls. The average includes data from three polls. The Optimus poll conducted March 22-24, the Emerson poll conducted March 20-22 and the Free Beacon/Basswood Research poll conducted March 19-20.
In another development Donald J. Trump announced that Paul J. Manafort will serve as his campaign’s Convention Manager. Manafort is volunteering his considerable insight and expertise because of his belief that Mr. Trump is the right person for these difficult times. He will be responsible for transitioning the Trump campaign’s activities as they relate to Mr. Trump’s nomination at the convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Manafort’s experience spans over three decades of working on U.S. presidential campaigns, and includes work on conventions for Presidents Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush, as well as Republican Presidential nominee, Bob Dole.
While talking about the development Trump said, “Paul is a great asset and an important addition as we consolidate the tremendous support we have received in the primaries and caucuses, garnering millions more votes than any other candidate. Paul Manafort, and the team I am building, bring the needed skill sets to ensure that the will of the Republican voters, not the Washington political establishment, determines who will be the nominee for the Republican Party. I look forward to winning the nomination, and ultimately the presidency in order to Make America Great Again.”
