Gallup’s daily tracking of the favorable/unfavorable ratings of the 2016 presidential candidates reflects a surprising outcome.
A new survey from the polling agency shows among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, Ted Cruz now has higher negatives than GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
As seen in the chart, the unfavorable ratings between the candidate have flipped-flopped entirely since the beginning of April:
Rival John Kasich smokes both candidates, but no one’s voting for Kasich. That alone may tell the tale of just what value the ratings actually have.
Trump’s sweeping success in both the New York primary and the five northeastern states that followed, sometimes referred to as the “Acela primary,” is certainly playing a role in the change seen, as more and more Republicans are coming to grips with the likelihood that Trump will be the party’s nominee.
Next Tuesday’s Indiana primary may determine whether the real estate tycoon reaches the 1237 delegates needed to secure the nomination prior to the Republican National Convention in July and with the latest poll showing Cruz ahead by double digits, the new Gallup data may work out to be beneficial to the Trump campaign.
