Two polls released over the weekend for the Wisconsin primary election show Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the lead over Donald Trump heading into Tuesday's vote.

According to a CBS/YouGov poll released on Sunday, Cruz came out over Trump by 43 percent to 37 percent, and in a Loras College poll out on Saturday, Cruz took the lead by 38-31 percent.

In the CBS Poll, the numbers are:
  • Cruz, 43 percent;
  • Trump, 37 percent;
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 18 percent.
Cruz dominated among voters looking for the most "consistent conservative," taking 80 percent of those voters, and Republicans said Gov. Scott Walker's endorsement helped the Texas senator more than hurting him.

But while the CBS poll put Cruz in the lead in Wisconsin, it showed Trump with a dominant, 31-point lead in his home state of New York:
  • Trump, 52 percent;
  • Cruz, 21 percent;
  • Kasich, 20 percent.
Trump also holds a commanding lead Pennsylvania, the poll said:
  • Trump, 47 percent
  • Cruz, 29 percent;
  • Kasich, 22 percent.
Republicans in all three states said the top priority for the next president is to be the "strongest leader." Voters in New York and Pennsylvania said they want someone who can "shake up the system," while Wisconsin voters want the strongest conservative.

Meanwhile, on the Democratic side, the poll put Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton by 49-47 percent, but Clinton leads Sanders by 53-43 percent in New York.

The CBS poll surveyed 1,501 registered voters in Wisconsin, with a 3.7-point margin of error; 1,854 registered voters in New York, with a 3.4-point margin of error; and 789 likely Republican voters in Pennsylvania, with a 3.4-point margin of error.

In the Loras College poll, the Dubuque, Iowa school's pollsters surveyed 1,000 registered voters in Wisconsin, including 832 likely primary voters split evenly between Democrats and Republicans, finding:
  • Cruz, 38 percent;
  • Trump, 31 percent;
  • Kasich, 18 percent.
And in the Democratic race:
  • Clinton, 47 percent;
  • Sanders, 41 percent.
The Loras Poll also ranked favorability ratings, with Kasich coming out ahead:
  • Kasich, plus 36 percent;
  • Cruz, plus 24 percent;
  • Trump, evenly divided.
The poll carried a margin of error overall of 3.1 percent, with a 4.8 percent margin on the party-specific votes.
