Cruz closes the gap with Trump in California
Politico reports that among likely voters Cruz only trails Trump by one point in California.
...This is just more evidence of what a disaster Trump would be as the nominee. He has managed to alienate huge blocks of Republican voters and especially women voters. He makes the implausible claim that he has great respect for women.
Cruz gains on Trump and makes it a closer race when looking at those who are most likely to vote in the state’s June 7 primary: Trump and Cruz then run neck-and-neck, earning 36 percent and 35 percent support, respectively.
Were Trump to win the presidential nomination outright after California’s primary, more than a quarter of registered Republicans in the state — 27 percent — say they would refuse to vote for him in the general election.
