Donald Trump is closing in on Sen. Ted Cruz in his home state of Texas – coming within 1 percentage point in a poll released less than a week before Super Tuesday voting.

The Emerson College survey finds Cruz with 29 percent support and Trump with 28 percent – well within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 percent.

Here's the breakdown:
  • Cruz: 29 percent
  • Trump: 28 percent
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: 25 percent
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich: 9 percent
  • Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson: 4 percent
On the Democratic side, the poll shows:
  • Hillary Clinton: 56 percent
  • Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders: 40 percent.
"Texas Democrats and Republicans, who might not agree on much, agree that dissatisfaction with government is the most important issue in this election cycle, cited by 45 percent of GOP voters and 42 percent of Democrats," the pollster reports.

A University of Texas and Texas Tribune poll released Tuesday shows Cruz ahead of Trump by 8 points.
