Ted Cruz has the lead in Wisconsin as its primary nears, up 43 percent to 37 percent over Donald Trump in an electorate that plays to Cruz's strengths, where Republicans are apt to call themselves "very" conservative and Cruz seems poised to take advantage.

In Trump's home state of New York, however, Trump has a dominant lead over the field, 52 percent to 21 percent for Cruz and 20 percent for Kasich. The billionaire leads by wide margins as best to handle multiple issues including terrorism, bringing back jobs, and the ability to defeat Hillary Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee.

Cruz still has no chance to get the nomination,

The GOPe is just using him to try to stop Trump from getting to the 1237 delegates, then they will discard him too.

Of course, teddy has no pride. When the Uniparty establishment GOPes bother to glance at him, teddy begs “Use me! Use me!”

FTA: “The billionaire leads by wide margins as best to handle multiple issues including terrorism, bringing back jobs, and the ability to defeat Hillary Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee.”

Most of the time, New Yorkers are smart and savvy and beyond being led astray by the media. Not this time.

It’s not even “divided”. Cruz’s only shot at winning a state in April in Wisconsin. Trump’s going to win New York, Pennsylvania, etc.

Trump at Greta’s town-hall "The very rich are probably going to end up paying more, but there’s an incentive for them to invest and create jobs in the country,"

I will to vote Republican, but I don't want to vote for someone who doesn't understand the root of the problem of the progressive tax policy.

Since creepy, lying, cheating Cruz is never going to win the general elction, a vote for Cruz in the primary is a vote for Hillary’s progressive tax policy. Enjoy your big tax hike, because you will have earned it with your vote.

AKA the Great Speed Bump of Wisconsin, assuming the polls are correct.

And assuming the polls are correct, this will be the high point of Lyin' Ted's campaign. He should take a tip from Costanza: leave on a high note.

“Ted Cruz has the lead in Wisconsin”...........

Keep saying it enough and people will actually start to believe it, we all know we read it on the internet and it must be true.

The little beady eyed Cruz will be mathematically eliminated from the delegate race April 26th even with a win tomorrow.

I kind of think the Walker machine is a factor in Wisconsin as the Kasich machine was a factor in Ohio and the Cruz machine was a factor in Texas. They control votes that way. This is Trump's election and he won it.

Hard to believe how Crus is letting his own ambition to blind him from the fact that he is being used as a tool for GOPe to get their own guy, probably Bush, nominated. If Cruz were half the patriot he claims to be he would join Trump as his VP and pledge his delegates to him. But Cruz is not what he portrays himself to be.

Also, I just heard Cruz Senior on the radio again spending the lie that ALL polls show Trump losing big to Hillary and that Ted beats with her in every poll. That is blatantly false. Every poll I have seen is just the opposit. I guess lieing runs in the Cruz family.

Trump is a liberal at heart. What kind of conservative criticizes Walker for NOT increasing taxes?

“GOP Voters Divided” = “Democrat Wins in November”.

Which, increasingly, looks like it could be Bernie Sanders (God help us all).

I probably can’t stop it, but will thoroughly enjoy watching the Chamber of Commerce types having to live with that as the end-product of their meddling.

“GOP Voters Divided” = “Democrat Wins in November”.

Or a GOP person wins in a close shave.

Neither Hillary and to an extent, Bernie is really producing any interest at all.
