A New Poll Of California Is Out And This Candidate Has a Narrow Lead

Donald Trump is inarguably the GOP frontrunner. However, if he does not meet the 51% delegate threshold, he may find himself back at Trump Tower in 2017. Ted Cruz is putting up a serious fight and as candidates focus towards California, it seems The Donald has Cruz nipping at his heels and making it a closer race than many had expected.


From the Daily Caller:

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump holds a narrow lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in California, according to a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times statewide poll released Sunday.

The results show Trump polling at 37 percent, with Cruz following at 30 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in third at 12 percent with all voters in the state.

The race was closer among likely voters, with 36 percent saying they would vote for Trump compared to Cruz’s 35 percent. Kasich trailed behind with just 14 percent of the vote.

Despite holding a small lead, 27 percent of Republicans in the Golden State said they would refuse to vote for Trump if he is the nominee. Seventy-three percent of all California voters said they have an unfavorable opinion of the front runner, with just 23 percent saying they held a high opinion of the businessman. Among GOP voters, 43 percent had an unfavorable view to the 51 percent who approved.

California, which holds 127 delegated doled out on a proportional basis, is set to hold its primary June 7.

Currently Trump is dominating in terms of delegates, holding 739 to Cruz’s 465 and Kasich’s 143.

Kasich continues to be a distraction that serves only as a burden to Cruz. If Kasich wants a brokered convention – and it’s his only shot – he should sit back, relax and let Cruz siphon delegates off of Trump.

Because, let’s face it, nobody is going to the voting booth and trying to decide between Trump and Kasich.
