The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump Trails Cruz in Wisconsin

For the first time in a long while, Ted Cruz is leading Donald Trump in a poll. The latest Wisconsin poll by Free Beacon posted favorable results for the Texan senator.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Ted Cruz – 36%
  • Donald Trump – 31%
  • John Kasich – 21%

Both Cruz and Trump continue to battle it out for the Republican nomination. Trump is still leading the delegate count, with 739 to Cruz’s 465.

The majority of the important primaries have went in Trump’s favor and Cruz has only managed wins in deeply religious or pariah states that other candidates had zero appeal in.

If Trump can adequately play up the Muslim card and milk the Brussels attack, he will all but secure the anti-Muslim vote and every other group of racist supporters that he has. The timing of the attack was perfect for Trump and will provide him with enough fuel to hammer the nomination process home, so long as he approaches the situation properly.

As for the results of this poll, Cruz’s lead is so slim that it cannot be called safe. If we have learned anything through this election cycle, it is that Trump is unpredictable and it is nearly impossible to predict his downfall.
