Get ready for a new Trumpertantrum of epic proportions.
A brand-new NBC/WSJ Poll released late Wednesday afternoon shows constitutional conservative Ted Cruz overtaking bombastic billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump for the first time nationally.
As you can see by the NBC News graphic above, Cruz now leads Trump 28% to 26%, indicative of an extremely close race nationally, flying in the face of other recent polls showing Trump with significant leads. Cruz’s lead is within the margin of error, which is +/- 3.5%.
Marco Rubio, a pro-amnesty GOP establishment-backed candidate is in a distant third place at 17%, followed by RINO John Kasich at 11%, Dr. Ben Carson at 10%, and RINO Jeb Bush at 4%.
