Sen. Ted Cruz's lead in Texas over GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump among likely Republican primary voters has shrunk to one point, well within the margin of error, according to a new American Research Group poll.

Here are the results:
  • Cruz: 33 percent.
  • Trump 32 percent.
  • Marco Rubio: 18 percent.
  • Ben Carson: 7 percent.
  • John Kasich: 5 percent.
"Cruz leads Trump 33 percent to 31 percent among self-reported Republicans (80 percent of likely voters), while Trump leads Cruz 37 percent to 31 percent among self-reported independents and Democrats," ARG's Dick Bennett said in a statement released to the Washington Examiner.

"In a switch, Cruz leads Trump 38 percent to 28 percent among men, while Trump leads Cruz 37 percent to 27 percent among women. Cruz leads Trump 44 percent to 26 percent among early voters (23 percent of likely voters), while Trump leads Cruz 34 percent to 29 percent among likely voters saying they will vote on Tuesday. Cruz also has an advantage among undecided voters with most favoring Cruz over Trump."

The poll of 400 voters has a margin of error of 5 percentage points.
