This entire election cycle, the predictions and prognostications of the professional political class have been wildly wrong. No one saw the rise of Donald Trump. No one gave Ted Cruz much of a chance to win.
But we see now that these two men are the left last standing and now they are battling it out for delegates as the 2016 Republican primary winds down to the summer convention in Cleveland.
The latest battleground is Wisconsin which votes next Tuesday. Trump had led there, but now something quit different is happening and the pundits are left scratching their heads again.
As reported by the Wisconsin State Journal:
Released Wednesday, the poll comes less than a week before Wisconsin’s presidential primary on Tuesday, a critical contest for all campaigns.
Cruz is looking for a victory to blunt Trump’s momentum toward the nomination, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich seeks a good showing to remain in the conversation…
In the poll of 957 likely voters, Cruz received support from 40 percent of likely Republican voters, Trump got 30 percent, and Kasich trailed with 21 percent support.
