Reuters Poll: Trump Extends His National Lead Among Republicans
Celebrity real estate developer Donald Trump has extended his lead nationally over Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Ohio Gov. John Kasich for the Republican presidential nomination, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.
The national online poll taken April 4-8 shows:
  • Donald Trump: 42 percent
  • Ted Cruz: 32 percent
  • John Kasich: 20 percent
Trump has topped the poll of Republican voters since July, though his lead narrowed considerably in recent weeks as Trump retweeted unflattering pictures of Cruz's wife and his campaign manager was charged with battery in an incident involving a reporter at a campaign event.
Meanwhile, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont for the Democratic nomination. The poll showed that 53 percent of Democrats support Clinton and 43 percent support Sanders.
The poll included 626 Republicans and 668 Democrats and has a credibility interval of 4.6 percentage points.
