Trump holds seven point lead over Cruz in California

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump leads rival Ted Cruz by seven points in California, according to a new Field Poll released Thursday.

Trump has 39 percent support of likely GOP primary voters, followed by Cruz at 32 percent, and John Kasich with 18 percent.

“The result that we got in this poll does not benefit Trump’s chances,” polling director Mark DiCamillo said. “If these regional differences persist, the delegate allocations will be more divided.”

Trump holds a 17-point lead over Cruz among men, while Cruz has a four-point edge among women. Trump also leads among older voters, while Cruz leads among younger voters.

The Field poll is the third consecutive poll finding Trump with a single-digit lead in California ahead of the state’s June 7 primary, where 172 delegates are up for grabs.
