Wisconsin Republican Poll GOP April 1 2016 Trump, Cruz, Kasich

The Republican race continues to be a highly charged and controversial affair. Donald Trump in particular has made headlines, first his campaign manager Corey Lewandoski was charged with one count of simple battery in connection to an incident with Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.

Trump, not content with only one controversy per week, then ploughed headlong into the ever delicate topic of abortion, suggesting that there should be "some form of punishment" for women who undergo the procedure, although he later clarified that "The doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman".

Ted Cruz, seemingly jealous of the massive media coverage that politically incorrect Trump is enjoying, decided to fight fire with fire and on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show jested "If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push". Although it was clearly said in tone of joking, it will do nothing to calm the increasingly toxic republican race, in which Kasich takes a calm approach while Cruz and Trump trade blows and accusations, in which even their wives have been fair game.

According to polls in the state of Wisconsin there is still everything to play for.

The RealClearPolitics average of polls indicates the following percentages

Ted Cruz          34.8%
Donald Trump   31.8%
John Kasich     22.5%

Although an optimus poll with a very high sample size (6182)  and 1.1% margin of error provided the following results

Donald Trump  31%
John Kasich    29%
Ted Cruz         27%
Undecided       13%
