A new Marquette Law School poll shows Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with a 10-point lead over Donald Trump among likely voters in Wisconsin's upcoming open primary election.

In the latest poll:
  • Cruz, 40 percent;
  • Trump, 30 percent;
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 21 percent;
  • Undecided, 8 percent.
According to Politico, if Cruz can hold onto a double-digit win, Wisconsin would award 15 delegates to his slate, and he could sweep the state's eight congressional districts, with each adding three more delegates.

The latest poll is the first giving Cruz a large lead in Wisconsin. Three other polls this month have Cruz and Trump within 5 points of each other, according to Real Clear Politics, and the polls overall show Cruz holding a narrow 3-point lead over Trump.

In February, the Marquette poll put Trump on top:
  • Trump, 30 percent;
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 20 percent;
  • Cruz, 19 percent;
  • Kasich and Dr. Ben Carson, 8 percent.
The new poll, conducted March 24-28 and before Gov. Scott Walker endorsed Cruz, also showed most voters in Wisconsin are "very uncomfortable" with the idea of Trump as president:
  • Trump, 56 percent;
  • Hillary Clinton, 42 percent;
  • Bernie Sanders, 31 percent;
  • Cruz, 32 percent;
  • Kasich, 12 percent.
Trump also netted a 22 percent favorable rating, compared to 70 percent who view him unfavorably.

The poll surveyed 1,405 voters overall, with a margin of error of 3.3 points. In the Republican primary, 471 likely voters were surveyed, with a margin of error of 5.8 percentage points.
