A new poll by Washington Free Beacon conducted on March 19-20 shows Cruz leading Trump by 4.8 points, 36.2 to 31.4. Ohio Gov. John Kasich trails with 20.8. This is up from the Emerson College Poll which showed Cruz with a 1 point lead of Trump.
Cruz’s lead expands dramatically in a head-to-head contest with Trump. If Kasich were to drop out before the primary, 47.8 percent of respondents say they would back Cruz, compared to just 36.2 percent for Trump.
