With just days remaining before the Wisconsin Republican primary, Ted Cruz has a sizable lead on Donald Trump based on the most recent polling. A poll conducted by Marquette on March 24-28 shows Cruz with a 10 percentage point lead on Trump.

The poll was conducted prior to Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement of Cruz. While all three GOP candidates participated in a CNN Town Hall discussion on Monday, Trump spent a good portion of his time defending his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, after he was arrested on charges of assaulting journalist Michelle Fields at a recent rally.

The Cruz campaign hopes the combination of the Walker endorsement along with the recent incident with Lewandowski can push Wisconsin voters to support Cruz.

Here’s a look at the latest Wisconsin Republican polls.

Who cares he can’t win and what’s going to happen when voters figure out he’s living out his father’s dream… and that is not his. Since he most likely still holds some animosity toward him for abandoning him and his mother in Canada. He really has no spine of his own that’s for sure and his Flip Flopping is now legendary. But… what most people are missing is his biggest wish/prayer (same thing to him) is being elected Evangelical Preacher in Chief. Then going down in history and the bible as the first combo Pope in Chief/Preacher in Chief of what he intends to be the establishment of an American Theocracy!!! …no way do we want to end up being like the muslims killing each other or like England as a Protestant Theocracy who tried to force the Catholic Irish Republic to bow to their control. Thus the century’s old Irish killing Irish over the Christian Religion. Forefathers rode separation of Church and State right into our Constitution in the 1st Amendment!!!

Cruz is Cruising for a Bruising against Trump and he nor Lewandowski will have ever touched him. Slimeball is the closest definition of Ted Cruz. He’s a born again Christian since 10yo? Oh really? Then why is there a video on YouTube of him at 18/19yo bragging about his aspirations to get with a girls/porn stars and his World Domination both rich and famous???


Well, unfortunately when the scum in the GOP and Democrat Party refuse to let Democracy play out and let ALL the
candidates campaign and talk to voters and let the voters decide and instead use every underhanded pathetic LIE to sway
voters that is what happens. All I can say is those who LIVE in Wisconsin NEED to ask themselves do they really want that kind of scum as
their candidate? Donald Trump has not been doing that, he has been holding rallies, and Town Halls and talks his policies. Of course he
talks about others but he has not gone to the gutter like the others.

Seems you are the one who lives under a rock, if you think Cheryl55 doesn’t have it right!!!


You’re right. Trump has not gone into the gutter like everyone else has. He started there and has somehow managed to drag everyone down with him.

I would point out that Trump has been a Republican for less time than Caitlyn has been a woman. Caitlyn shows a lot more commitment.
