In a recent poll by NBC/ The Wall Street Journal/ and Marist, it shows Trump up by 15 points for the Indiana Presidential Primary tomorrow. If he keeps on that track, all of Senator Ted Cruz’s hopes to stop the GOP front-runner will be washed down the drain.
At the moment, without Indiana, Trump needs to win 46% of the rest of the delegates to get the 1,237 delegates needed to win him the nomination. Indiana is the tipping point. Indiana awards its 57 delegates in a winner-take-all fashion, as well as winner-take-all in each congressional district. Therefore, if Trump wins, Trump wins. That would mean that he would only need to win 40% of the remaining delegates to win the nomination. The hope for Cruz and Kasich to stop the powerhouse front-runner would be all but defeated.
It’s not necessarily because of the Kasich/Cruz alliance that Ted Cruz is having such a hard time, but a poll, again by NBC/The Wall Street Journal/ and Marist, shows that 58% of likely Republican primary voters disapprove of the said alliance. Now Cruz needs to win 130% of the primaries to win the nomination.

Not only has the alliance between Cruz and Kasich backfired in a big way, but now even delegates who had been on Cruz’s side are starting to warm up to Trump. After his giant victory last Tuesday, winning five states all in one day, it appears that Cruz supporters are getting spooked. Of the ten North Dakota delegates on the Cruz slate reached by National Review, five express serious reservations about backing the Texas senator on that crucial first ballot. It seems that Trump continues to gain more favor, power, and speed as the primary elections go on. To make matters worse, Senator Ted Cruz is coming at this race with a win or die trying attitude. Recently he was asked if he would back Donald Trump if he got the nomination, the senator refused to answer. Not only would he not answer, he said he believes that Trump will lose to Hillary if he gets the GOP nomination. “If we lose this, we lose our country. We lose the Supreme Court for a generation, religious liberty is taken away, our kids are bankrupted,” he said.
