The bombshell new polling data, from American Research Group (ARG), show Trump’s 42 percent towering over Cruz’s 32 percent in the Badger State. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, for whom it is already mathematically impossible to win the nomination outright before the GOP convention in Cleveland in July, lurks back at 23 percent.

The poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a five percent margin of error. It was conducted from April 1 to April 3. 54 percent of likely GOP primary voters polled in Wisconsin were men, 46 percent were women.

Most Republicans Feel Embarrassed by Campaign, Poll Says


Alarmed by the harsh attacks and negative tone of their presidential contest, broad majorities of Republican primary voters view their party as divided and a source of embarrassment and think that the campaign is more negative than in the past, according to a New York Times/CBS News national poll released on Monday.

The dismay has not set back their leading candidate, however. While about four in 10 Republican voters disapprove of how Donald J. Trump has handled the violence at some of his rallies, Mr. Trump has also picked up the most support recently as several rivals have left the race. Forty-six percent of primary voters said they would like to see Mr. Trump as the party’s nominee, more than at any point since he declared his candidacy in June. Twenty-six percent favored Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, and 20 percent backed Gov. John Kasich of Ohio.

Fully three-quarters of Republican primary voters expect Mr. Trump to be their party’s nominee.

Compared with Republicans, far more Democratic primary voters see their side as unified and say the campaign has made them feel mostly proud of their party.

Yet Democrats are more sharply divided over their candidates. Hillary Clinton has only a slight edge over Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and growing numbers of Democratic primary voters are more excited about Mr. Sanders as their possible nominee. In the past month, the level of enthusiasm for Mrs. Clinton among Democratic voters has fallen eight percentage points to 40 percent, while it has grown for Mr. Sanders by 12 percentage points to 56 percent. Still, more than seven in 10 Democratic voters expect Mrs. Clinton to win the nomination.

TRUMP’S RIOT PREDICTION OUTRAGEOUS, OHIO GOVERNOR KASICH SAYS


john-kasich-02

When he says that there could be riots, that’s inappropriate,” the Ohio governor said during an interview, which will be broadcast on Sunday.

“While we have our differences and disagreements, we’re Americans. Americans don’t say, ‘Let’s take to the streets and have violence,’” he stated.

Trump, who has never held elected office, is leading the Republican race and has so far won 19 primary contests. Ted Cruz has won contests in eight states while Kasich has only clinched victory in Ohio.

Some Republican Donors Against Trump Express Resignation After Romp


Donald Trump didn’t land the knockout blow he sought Tuesday, but his wins in Florida and two other states’ contests left some big Republican donors ready to throw in the towel.

Trump’s only setback of the night was in Ohio, where Governor John Kasich took first prize. (Missouri remains too close to call, according to the Associated Press.) But with no clear path to the nomination—there are fewer delegates up for grabs than he would need to clinch it—Kasich’s win struck some donors as too little too late to stop Trump.

“I think he’s pretty much got the nomination locked up,” said Louis Sola, the founder of luxury yacht dealer Evermarine, who backed Jeb Bush and then Marco Rubio. While he said he thinks highly of Trump’s rival Ted Cruz, Sola said he’s unlikely to back him because he doesn’t believe Trump can be stopped. “I think we’re going to sit on the sidelines for a while,” he said.

Wealthy Republican donors looking for a more mainstream nominee have stepped up efforts in recent weeks to block Trump’s ascendancy. They flooded Florida with ads attacking the billionaire and failed to significantly dent his popularity. As a result, many donors, including Sola, are shifting their focus to Senate races where Republican candidates could be negatively affected by a Trump nomination.

Take Art Pope, a deep-pocketed donor who’s made a mark on North Carolina politics. Pope said in an interview that he’s a delegate for Rubio, who dropped out of the race after losing to Trump in his home state Tuesday, and will go to the Republican convention uncommitted.

“I’m not making a decision about who I’m supporting now,” Pope said. “Regardless of who the nominee for president is, I will very much focus my efforts on legislative races.”

KASICH ATTACKS TRUMP, CALLS FOR CONFRONTING PUTIN


Nobody knows who he is. “My greatest challenge,” he told Katie Couric, “is really not against anybody else. My greatest challenge is to become known. My greatest challenge is for people to hear me, because they don’t.”

How to get people to hear him?
