Cruz leads the poll with the support of 28 percent of those surveyed, followed by Trump at 26 percent, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 17 percent, Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 11 percent, and Ben Carson at 10 percent.
Trump dropped seven percentage points since last month, and hit his lowest point in the NBC/WSJ poll since October 2015 when Carson took the top spot. Cruz and Kasich each gained eight percentage points since January, the largest improvement of any candidate, and received their highest level of support ever in the poll.
"When you see a number this different, it means you might be right on top of a shift in the campaign," said Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with a Democratic pollster on behalf of Hart Research Associates, to NBC.
This is just a single poll, to be sure. But one can only hope and pray that a man grounded in the Constitution since his youth can attain the presidency.
Say your prayers, my friends.
