With just three weeks until Maryland's presidential primary, a new Washington Post-University poll shows presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump with clear leads for their respective parties.

Maryland, along with Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware and Connecticut, hold their primary on April 26. And, although Trump is faring well against his GOP counterparts, the Washington Post notes that Clinton "wallops" Trump in a hypothetical general election matchup by 35 percentage points among registered voters.

However, according to the poll for Republicans:
  • Donald Trump, 41 percent;
  • John Kasich, 31 percent;
  • Ted Cruz, 22 percent;
Although Trump currently leads the Kasich by 10 points, the Washington Post notes that it is not statistically significant given the survey's sample size of 283 likely-Republican voters.

In subgroup results:
  • Maryland college students: Kasich, 43 percent; Trump, 28 percent; Cruz, 23 percent.
  • Republicans without college degrees: Trump, 51 percent; Kasich, 22 percent; Cruz, 21 percent.
On the Democratic side:
  • Clinton, 55 percent;
  • Sanders, 40 percent;
In subgroup results:
  • Black voters: Clinton, 66 percent; Sanders, 33 percent;
  • Women: Clinton, 60 percent; Sanders, 35 percent;
  • Moderate and conservative Democrats: Clinton, 63 percent; Sanders 30 percent;
  • Voters 50 years and older: Clinton, 66 percent; Sanders, 26 percent;
The Washington Post notes that in the Democratic contest, the state's 95 delegates will be awarded proportionately. However, for Republicans, the winner will receive 14 of 38 delegates, with the remaining 24 delegates awarded in sets of three to the winner of each of Maryland's eight congressional districts.

The Washington Post-University of Maryland poll was conducted March 30 to April 3 among a random sample of 1,503 Maryland adults on landline and cellular phones, conducted in partnership with Maryland's Center for American Politics and Citizenship.

Results among the sample of 539 Democratic likely voters have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5.5 percentage points; the error margin among 283 Republican likely voters is 7.5 percentage points.
