After what was arguably the worst week for his campaign, a new ARG poll may have some light at the end of the tunnel for Trump. The poll, unlike other polls, included Democrats, and independents.
The GOP front runner has been claiming that many voters are jumping parties to get on the bandwagon, and studies have shown this to be the case.
Whether that’s the case in Wisconsin, which had Trump down by 10 over the last week, we will find out tomorrow.
If Trump in fact pulls out a win in the cheesehead state, it will be another case of media getting it wrong again.
Pundits on Twitter asked if the poll was an outlier, or something to look at:
Late surge, or just an outlier? ARG poll in Wisconsin has Trump 42, Cruz 32, Kasich 23. Cruz leads most other polls.

This new ARG poll with Trump up 42-32 over Cruz is first one I’ve seen that clearly includes crossovers.https://t.co/bQON2UZxnR

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has taken a 10-point lead over Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97%
in Wisconsin in the final hours before the critical primary on Tuesday, a new poll released on Monday afternoon shows.
The bombshell new polling data, from American Research Group (ARG), show Trump’s 42 percent towering over Cruz’s 32 percent in the Badger State. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, for whom it is already mathematically impossible to win the nomination outright before the GOP convention in Cleveland in July, lurks back at 23 percent.
The poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a five percent margin of error. It was conducted from April 1 to April 3.
