The latest polls show Ted Cruz with a slight lead in Arkansas over Donald Trump and Marco Rubio. Arkansas is one of the states that both Cruz and Rubio hope to win to have a chance at keeping up with a surging Trump.

There is limited polling data available for Arkansas, but Talk Business/Hendrix College conducted a poll earlier this month. The primaries do not always go according to the early polling numbers but are helpful in getting an overall picture of what can be expected.
