As the #TrumpTrain rolls on, it is becoming more and more likely that Donald Trump is going to be the nominee.
He is ahead by a lot in Indiana, but California is still in play.
Or is it?
Donald Trump is leading Ted Cruz by a whopping 34 percentage points — 54%-20% — among likely Republican voters in California, a SurveyUSA poll for KUSA found.
That’s a significant gain for the Republican frontrunner, whose lead was only 8 percentage points in the last SurveyUSA poll a month ago. And it’s a significant loss for Cruz. The two were 40%-32% last month.
California, which holds its primary June 7, is the most delegate-rich state on the Republican primary calendar with 172 at stake for GOP hopefuls.
That makes Indiana, which will award 57 delegates after its primary Tuesday, all that much more important for Cruz if he wants to stop Trump from reaching the 1,237 delegates he needs to clinch the nomination. In the most recent poll, though, he is trailing by 15 percentage points in the Hoosier State.
That’s certainly a big lead. Trump is unstoppable, it seems.
Time will tell, though. A lot can happen in the next few weeks. The Establishment could find a way to steal the election and send Trump packing.
