PPP: Cruz, Trump close; Sanders leads Clinton

A new survey from the Dem firm Public Policy Polling has Ted Cruz and Donald Trump about even in Wisconsin among likely primary voters, while Bernie Sanders led Hillary Clinton.

The survey, released one day after the Marquette University Law School Poll, also found Russ Feingold leading Ron Johnson by 7 percentage points among registered voters. Marquette had the race at a 5-point spread in Feingold’s favor among registered voters.

PPP, which conducted the poll on behalf of the progressive group VoteVets Action Fund, found Cruz at 38 percent among likely GOP primary voters and Trump at 37 percent. John Kasich was at 17 percent.

On the Dem side, Sanders was backed by 49 percent of likely primary voters, while Clinton was at 43. Clinton led 50-42 among self-identified Dems, but Sanders was up 62-31 among independents who plan to vote in Wisconsin’s open primary.

In the Senate race, Feingold led Johnson 46-39 among registered voters. 

The PPP survey was conducted March 28 and 29, just as the presidential visits were heating up in Wisconsin and Gov. Scott Walker endorsed Cruz. The firm used automated calls to survey 1,397 registered voters, and that sample had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points. 

Additionally, the firm interviewed 768 likely GOP primary voters and 720 likely Dem primary voters. The margins of error for those samples were plus or minus 3.5 and 3.7 percentage points, respectively.
