NBC Poll: Trump, Clinton Lead in MD

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton keep huge leads in MD two weeks before the state'south presidential primary election, according to a new NBC four/Marist poll released Tuesday night.

Among likely Republican voters, Trump holds a 12-point lead over TX Sen. Ted Cruz, forty-one % to twenty-nine percent, with OH Gov. John Kasich in third at twenty-fourth percent.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton leads VT Sen. Bernie Sanders by twenty-two points, fifty-eight % to thirty-six percent.

Among Republicans, Trump enjoys the most enthusiastic obstruct of supporters. Seventy-one % of his backers declare they "strongly" support him, compared to fifty-one % for Cruz and forty-four % for Kasich.

"We're seeing in MD a similar pattern as we're seeing elsewhere, with Trump in the low forty and then Cruz and Kasich dividing up the rest," said pollster Lee Miringoff. "Trump is well positioned because the other two are dividing up the pie."

Consistent with exit polling from other contests around the country, Sanders performs well with youthful people in MD compared to Clinton. He receives fifty-four % support from Democratic voters under forty-five years old, compared to forty-one % for Clinton. Sanders also captures the votes of about two-thirds of self-described independents.
