Sen. Ted Cruz has widened his lead over Donald Trump from one percentage point to five in Wisconsin, according to an Emerson College Polling Society survey released Monday.
- Ted Cruz: 40 percent
- Donald Trump, 35 percent
- John Kasich, 21 percent
This shows a major shift toward Cruz since the last Emerson poll was conducted in mid-March. In that poll, Cruz had only a paper-thin lead, beating out Trump 36 percent to 35 percent. Kasich enjoyed a two-point boost from 19 percent in the same period.
Nearly all recent polls of Wisconsin have shown Cruz in the lead, although by substantially varied margins.
Emerson College Polling Society conducted this poll from March 30-April 3, using an automated phone system. Pollsters surveyed 549 people likely to vote in the Republican primary, with a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.
