Donald Trump is well-positioned to sweep Connecticut's 28 delegates in the April 26 primary election, according to results from an Emerson College poll released Monday.

According to the statewide poll conducted on April 10-11 of 354 likely GOP primary voters:
  • Trump, 50 percent;
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 26 percent;
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, 17 percent;
  • 6 percent, undecided
Trump holds the lead in all five congressional districts with margins of 18 to 38 points, with Kasich coming in second and Cruz third, the poll showed.

Trump also commanded the most loyalty:
  • 80 percent, Trump;
  • 38 percent, Kasich;
  • 37 percent, Cruz;
The Democratic race is much more tight in the state. According to the 356 likely Democratic voters polled:
  • Hillary Clinton, 49 percent;
  • Bernie Sanders, 43 percent;
  • Six percent, undecided.
However, with Connecticut being a closed-primary, same-day registration state, Sanders' gap is only 1 point, if people switch parties to vote for him. Once independents and Republicans who said they support Sanders are added in, bringing the gap to 47 percent for Clinton and 46 percent for Sanders.

And in head-to-head matchups in the general election, both Trump and Cruz would lose to either Clinton or Sanders, the poll showed:
  • Kasich over Clinton, 49-38 percent;
  • Kasich over Sanders, 48-40 percent;
  • Clinton over Trump, 48-40 percent;
  • Clinton over Cruz, 52-31 percent;
  • Sanders over Trump, 49-40 percent;
  • Sanders over Cruz, 55-30 percent.
Democrats and Republicans alike said dissatisfaction with government is the most important issue in the election.

Republicans said their second-most pressing issue is stopping ISIS and terrorism, while Democrats said their next most pressing concern is jobs and unemployment.

The margin of error by parties was 5.2 points. Meanwhile, the general election sample consisted of 1,043 likely general election voters, and carried a 3 point margin of error.
