This afternoon, Marquette University Law School will release its final poll before next Tuesday's Wisconsin Republican primary. In the school's last survey, in late February, Donald Trump held a 30%-19% lead over Ted Cruz, with John Kasich below 10%.
A few polls out in the interim have shown a tightening race, with Trump and Cruz now tied in the 270toWin polling average, while John Kasich has been gaining significant ground.
The Marquette poll is seen by many as the 'gold standard' in Wisconsin, so it will be interesting to see where it ends up.
Wisconsin has 42 delegates, 18 are winner take all for the statewide winner, while the other 24 are winner take all based on the vote within each of the state's 8 congressional districts (3 per district).
There has been less polling for the Democratic primary. The last Marquette survey showed the race a dead heat.
The poll often includes general election match-ups as well.
