Indiana has been a state that has heavily favored Senator Ted Cruz. It had been a foregone conclusion for months that he would win the vast majority of the votes in the state. Since his attempted alliance with Kasich before last Tuesday’s brutal performance in the primaries, Cruz has seen a sharp decline in the polls.
Cruz along with Kasich is now mathematically eliminated from reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to win the Republican nomination prior to the convention. He has since switched his strategy from winning the nomination to blocking Trump and forcing a fight at the convention. That strategy has not sat well with the Republican voters in the state of Indiana.
A new poll reveals the dramatic reversal of fortune for Cruz in the state of Indiana. In the latest NBC/WSJ Poll, he has free fallen to 34% of the vote while Donald Trump now holds a commanding lead at 49% percent of the Republican vote. John Kasich is languishing extremely far behind the top two candidates.
