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%.
