Since taking the lead in July of 2015, Donald J. Trump has dominated the national polls for all but two days of the nomination season.
While Ted Cruz continually spoke of Trump’s “ceiling” of support, Trump continued to climb past each barrier.
Following a massive showing in Pennsylvania last week, the billionaire’s numbers have hit an all-time high, reaching 44% in the Real Clear Politics national average.
The average combines the five most recent polls.
The latest poll by Investor’s Business Daily puts Trump a full 19 points ahead of Cruz with 48% support.
Trump has gained a full five points since April 13th, while Texas Senator Ted Cruz has lost nearly three points.
For today’s contest in Indiana, frontrunner Trump holds a commanding 17% lead over Ted Cruz. The latest poll by Gravis Marketing puts Trump 44%, Cruz at 27% and Kasich at 9%.
Based upon previous performance, Gravis’ polls under rate Trump and over sample Kasich supporters. Expect Trump to win Indiana by 45% to 46%.
