The Wisconsin Republican polls showed a shift within the last month. While Donald Trump was leading in the polls in early March, the majority of polls conducted within the last week show Ted Cruz with a lead in Wisconsin.

After a short hiatus between nominating events, Tuesday’s primary represents 42 delegates at stake. In addition to the delegates, it would be a boost to the winning campaign with important April primaries on the horizon.

A loss in Wisconsin would make it increasingly difficult for Trump to win the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the GOP nomination before the convention. A recent ARG poll did show Trump with a lead over Cruz.

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