Trump’s Lead Shrinks As Attacks On Cruz Appear To Backfire — PollAnd Dave Blount adds this nugget:
Support for Trump fell to 31% among registered Republicans and Republican leaners, down from 34% in the prior IBD/TIPP Poll...
...Meanwhile, Ted Cruz saw his support climb three points to 21%, the highest number that Cruz has achieved in five months of polling.
This comes after Trump has spent several days launching sharp attacks at Cruz, challenging his eligibility to serve as president, and attacking his character.
As for the delusional belief that Trump will draw votes away from Democrats,Donald Trump could not be reached for comment, but I suspect his reaction would be to call Blount "a loser, a lightweight, and a failure."
While Trump’s attacks didn’t move the needle among conservatives, his support among moderates fell from 39% to 24%, while Cruz’s jumped from 5% to 18%.
Trump’s campaign is based on hype, anger, lies, and nonsense. It is only a matter of time until this impending train wreck goes off the rails. The question is whether that will happen before or after the nomination is secured.
