The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trouble Brewing for Trump and Clinton in Wisconsin

The latest Wisconsin poll by Emerson has placed both Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders ahead of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Bernie Sanders – 51%
  • Hillary Clinton – 43%

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Ted Cruz – 40%
  • Donald Trump – 35%
  • John Kasich – 21%

The mainstream media called Sanders a dead candidate after he struggled early on in the primaries. However, he has managed to win 6 of his last 7 primaries and most of those wins have been by large margins. He is still behind in delegates, but the gap isn’t an impossible one to close and he appears to have all the momentum in his favor.

For Clinton, she still leads, but she has to know that her lead isn’t safe and could quickly evaporate if she continues to perform poorly in the upcoming primaries. A disappointing outcome in Wisconsin could accelerate her political downfall and could provide Sanders with enough fuel to start robbing her of her cherished superdelegates.

For the Republicans, Trump is still the king of the party, but over the last few weeks he has realized that his lead isn’t safe and that Cruz is a legitimate candidate that could beat him. A Cruz victory would require a lot of factors to go in his favor, yet if we’ve learned anything about this election, it’s that you should always expect the unexpected.
