Donald Trump continues to soar and the rest of the field continues to wither away.
Indiana is going to the primary polls today and the mainstream media will have you believe Cruz is going to win. That might be true, we don’t know yet. However, what we DO know is that Trump keeps climbing in the polls and the rest of the GOP field is floundering back wards.
In the last people before the Indiana primary, Trump absolutely CRUSHED the competition and continued to extend his lead.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has hit a new polling high, getting 56 percent support among Republicans and GOP-leaning voters in a new NBC News/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday.
Ted Cruz followed with 22 percent, and John Kasich at 14 percent.
At this point it’s just embarrassing. Cruz and Kasich need to pack it in and call it a campaign.
Trump rose six points from last month’s edition of the same poll, while Cruz dropped four points and Kasich dropped three.
A plurality of Republicans surveyed, 39 percent, said Cruz should stay in the GOP race through the party’s convention in July. Slightly fewer, 36 percent, said he should drop out now, while 23 percent said he should drop out next month if he’s running behind at the end of the primary season.
Meanwhile 58 percent said Kasich should drop out now, while another 26 percent said he should stay in the race until Cleveland and 15 percent said drop out next month.
The survey of 3,479 GOP registered voters took place April 25-May 1. It has a margin of error of 2.2 points.
Begin video transcript:
The new NBC/Survey Monkey National weekly tracking poll shows Donald Trump widening his lead over Ted Cruz and John Kasich by another 10 points.
In the national voting preference among registered Republicans, in just the last week, Trump has shot up to 56%, up 6 points. Cruz has dropped to 22%, down 4 points in the last week, and Kasich at 14%, down 3 points, among the 12,462 surveyed.
Today’s Indiana primary is an open primary. That means both Democrats and Independents can participate.
Trump is also doing better in the race against probable Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton in the NBC/Survey Monkey poll.
Trump is now just 6 points behind Clinton – 43 to 37, but that leaves another 20% undecided.
Ted Cruz, on the other hand, has dropped precipitously in a matchup against Clinton who now beats him 44 to 30.
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
BOOM! And even when going up against Clinton, Trump is gaining ground in this national poll where Cruz is fading much faster. I think the choice is clear here. Trump for Repubican nominee and for the next POTUS!
