Only days after a new national poll showing Ted Cruz pulling within the margin of error of Donald Trump nationally, another new poll indicates that the bloviating, bullying billionaire and reality TV actor is falling fast in the most populous state in the nation — California.
A new USC/LA Times poll of likely Republican voters released on Sunday reveals that Donald Trump is in a statistical tie with Ted Cruz, only leading by 1-point, 36 percent to 35 percent, respectively, and well within the margin of error.
The California Republican presidential primary, which is scheduled for June 7, is now considered a key state for both Trump and Cruz who are scrambling to reach the magical number of delegates required to secure the GOP nomination — 1,237.
Delusional RINO Ohio Governor John Kasich, who is mathematically eliminated from obtaining enough delegates to win the nomination, continues to stay in the race, acting only as a spoiler or feeding his need for attention or both. Kasich now has 12 percent of the California vote according to the poll and is unlikely to pick up any delegates, leaving him still in last place behind Marco Rubio who dropped out of the race weeks ago.
California has a whopping 172 delegates at stake on June 7, with 13 delegates going to the overall winner of the state and the remaining divided among the winner of each congressional district. Each of California’s 53 districts has three delegates available for the taking.
