NEW POLL: Trump Widens Lead in GOP Race; Clinton-Sanders Tightens
A new Fox News Poll shows Donald Trump jumping to an 18-point lead over Ted Cruz this week, giving him record high support for the Republican nomination.
Trump topped Cruz by 45-27 percent among GOP primary voters. John Kasich comes in third with 25 percent.
Three weeks ago, the billionaire businessman was up by just three points over Cruz.
The previous high was last month’s 41 percent.
On the Democratic side, the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders has tightened.
Clinton is ahead by two points, edging Bernie Sanders by 48-46 percent. Last month, before Sanders won eight of the nine most recent contests, she had a 13-point advantage.
Clinton’s support has declined 11 points among women, while support for Sanders is up by nine. Support among men mostly held steady -- and it’s in Sanders’ favor: 57-37 percent.
