Republican Donald Trump holds a huge lead in California, in a new Fox News Poll, while Hillary Clinton has a razor-thin edge over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race
Donald Trump commands a formidable 27-point lead in California over Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), according to a new poll. Fox News conducted its latest sampling of 583 likely GOP presidential primary voters in California from April 18-21. It has a margin of error of 4 points.
Trump leads Cruz by 15 points heading towards the Golden State’s voting contest, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
His lead is much smaller nationwide, however, with Cruz trailing the Republican presidential front-runner by just below 10 points.
Trump captures 49 percent of likely Republican primary voters. That’s more than the combined support for his two remaining competitors: Ted Cruz receives 22 percent and John Kasich 20 percent.
The mogul leads his rivals by a wide margin among every demographic group, including those he sometimes has trouble capturing: women, young voters, college graduates, and very conservatives.
While in the Democrats, Clinton is up by just two points over Sanders among California likely Democratic primary voters (48-46 percent).
