Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is ahead by 9 points in establishment hell-hole state of Indiana ahead of the state’s Tuesday primary, according to a poll released Friday.
Trump has 41 percent support among likely GOP primary voters, the American Research Group poll found, followed by Ted Cruz, at 32 percent, and John Kasich, at 21 percent.
Trump is the top choice among the solely self-reported Republicans surveyed, taking 42 percent compared to 34 percent for Cruz and 17 percent for Kasich.
The businessman is also the top choice among the self-reported independents and Democrats deemed likely to vote in the primary, leading Cruz by 10 points among that group.
While Trump holds a 13-point lead over Cruz among men, 45 to 32 percent, his lead among women is narrower — 36 to 32 percent.
Recent surveys have given Trump an advantage between 2 and 8 points over Cruz as the pair battle for support in the Hoosier State.
Indiana establishment Gov. Mike Pence is has endorsed Cruz on Friday. The Texas senator announced Carly Fiorina this week as his running mate.
Cruz, even though mathematically eliminated, is seeking to gain some momentum in the state after drawing mockery for calling a basketball hoop a “ring.”
Trump has also campaigned intensely in Indiana, appearing repeatedly with famed former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight.
The survey of 400 likely GOP primary voters was conducted April 27–28 with a margin of error of 5 percentage points.
Almost all polls show Trump as leading in Indiana with the exception of one single bizarre poll. Why is it bizarre? Well when 5 polls show Trump as leading by 2 to 9%, then there is this weird poll where Cruz leads by 16%, what else can you call this poll than bizarre? FAKE? Most likely!
The media is now going frenzy, publishing only this fake poll where Cruz is leading, totally ignoring the other 5 polls where Trump is leading. We saw the exact same type of thing in Wisconsin with a fake poll meant to persuade people to vote for Cruz and it worked but will it also work this time? At least back then he had a chance, now he is eliminaTED yet both Cruz and K-Sick are sticking in together like parasites with one single purpose: contested convention!
