SHOCKING: GOP Candidates Much Closer In The Polls Than You’d Expect

April 05, 2016Apr 05, 2016

Donald Trump was once leading the Republican polls by double digits over Ted Cruz, his closest competitor.  John Kasich was also once in last place and still remains there, but does so at a much higher percentage.

A recent poll shows a significant narrowing of the race.  According to Breitbart, the IDP/TIPP poll, which was the most accurate poll during the 2012 presidential race shows that the race is just heating up and is far from over.

Trump holds steady in 1st place at 38% of Republican voter support.  Cruz has risen up in the polls and is in striking distance with 30% of support.  Kasich is still far behind in 3rd place. However, he has increased his support to 20%.

Still, the only number that matters is 1,237.  That is the number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination.  If no one succeeds in getting to that number, the nominee will be picked at the convention later this summer. 

In the game of delegates, only Trump and Cruz have a chance at winning the nomination outright.  For Kasich it is statistically impossible and he is hoping for a miracle at a contested convention.
