The first statewide poll of the presidential primaries in Indiana gives Trump an edge over Ted Cruz. Indiana is a crucial state because it is one of the few major states remaining where Cruz can snatch significant numbers of delegates from Trump.
According to WTHR:
The WTHR/HPI Indiana Poll has Trump with a 6-point lead over his closest challenger Ted Cruz. The poll indicates a record turnout will favor Trump over the other candidates.
