‘It’s over’: Trump eyes Indiana after Cruz slides in polls
by Marlsa Schultz | May 1, 2016
Despite pinning his presidential hopes on Indiana, Ted Cruz is down 15 points in that state, a new poll revealed Sunday.
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows Donald Trump dominating, receiving the support of 49 percent of likely Republican primary voters, with Cruz at 34 percent and Gov. John Kasich is at 13 percent.
“It’s over,” Trump declared on Fox News Sunday if he wins Indiana Tuesday. “I think it’s over now. But it’s over. Cruz cannot win. Cruz cannot win. He’s got no highway.”
The poll shows a backfiring of a pact the Texas senator forged with Kasich to campaign alone in Indiana, while leaving New Mexico and Oregon to Kasich.
The majority of likely GOP voters (58 percent) said they disagree with the stop-Trump deal, while just 34 percent approve.
Trump has 996 delegates, compared to Cruz’s 565 and Kasich’s 153 delegates. There’s 57 delegates of up for grabs in Indiana.
“In Indiana, Trump is positioned to corral all the [state’s 57] delegates, which will be a big prize toward winning the nomination outright,” Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, told NBC News.
In more good news for Trump, Indiana voters pick the New York billionaire over Clinton in a hypothetical match-up 48 percent to 41 percent. (Read More)
