Fox Business Network Poll: Cruz leads in WI

Among just those who declare they will “definitely” vote, Cruz’s lead over Trump widens to 46-33 percent, and Kasich gets sixteen percent.

There is a huge gender gap. Women back Cruz over Trump by a 19-point edge (46-27 percent). The two candidates are much closer among men: Cruz gets forty % to Trump’s thirty-five percent.

White evangelical Christians voting in the GOP primary prefer Cruz over Trump by 49-28 percent. Trump has beaten Cruz among this key voting bloc in more than ten contests so far, according to the Fox News exit poll.

Cruz is ahead of Trump among those with a college degree (forty-two-30 percent) as well as those without a degree (forty-four-34 percent).

Independents can vote in Wisconsin’s open primary -- and are more inclined to back Trump (thirty-seven percent) than Cruz (twenty-six percent) or Kasich (twenty-six percent).

Meanwhile, independents are equally likely to opt to vote in the Republican primary (fifty percent) as the Democratic primary (fifty percent).

The WI primary is April five. Even so, more than one in five likely GOP primary voters declare they might modify their mind over the following few days (twenty-two percent). That includes forty % of Kasich supporters, eighteen % of Cruz supporters, and fifteen % of Trump supporters.

The ambivalence of Kasich supporters is better news for Cruz than Trump, as the OH governor’s backers are more than twice as likely to title Cruz as their second choice candidate.

Dissatisfaction with the current slate of candidates is clear.

Many wish there were another title on the ballot. If WI Gov. Scott Walker were still in the race, 44 % of GOP primary voters declare they'd vote for him. That puts him more than twenty points ahead of the pack: Trump gets twenty-one percent, Cruz seventeen % and Kasich twelve percent.

In that hypothetical scenario, fifty-nine % of Cruz’s supporters and thirty-one % of Trump’s, defect to Walker.

Walker, one of the first GOP heavyweights to drop out of the race, endorsed Cruz Tuesday.

If the common election ends up being Trump against Democrat Hillary Clinton, only fifty-five % of GOP primary voters would be pleased with their choices, while 42 % would “seriously consider” voting for a third party candidate or not vote at all.

Among Cruz backers, over half would consider voting for a third party (forty-three percent) or stay residence (thirteen percent).

This Fox Business Network Poll was conducted below the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R). The telephone poll (landline and cellphone) was conducted March 28-30, two thousand sixteen with live interviewers among a random sample of 1.602 WI voters selected from a statewide voter file. Results for the seven hundred forty-two likely Republican primary voters have a edge of sampling mistake of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
