I got an e-mail saying Ted Cruz was doing very well in Indiana. So I thought I’d check it out.

Ted Cruz leads Donald Trump by double digits in a new poll of Indiana, which hosts the next contest in the GOP presidential primary on Tuesday.

The Texas senator leads the real estate mogul 45 percent to 29 percent among registered voters, according to a poll by the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich trails in third place, with 13 percent, and 13 percent are undecided.

The results of the poll are at odds with other recent surveys that show Trump in the lead.

Note that the sample space is registered voters and not the usually more accurate likely voters.

In a poll only insiders have access to (an “internal” poll supposedly), Ted’s support is collapsing.

…earlier in the week, Cruz allies and people close to the campaign described a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his native northeast. In Indiana, which Cruz backers once believed they were favored to win after his strong defeat of Trump in Wisconsin, Cruz’s numbers have fallen precipitously: Once leading, Cruz now trails in the state by eight to 10 points, according to a person who has seen the numbers, with Trump over the 40% mark. Cruz’s campaign did not respond when asked about those figures.

The real poll is in four days.
