Cruz cuts Trump's lead to 5 points in latest national GOP presidential primary poll

NBC News and the Wall Street Journal must think they're the only game in town.

Poll: Trump Hits 40 Percent Support, But Cruz Runs Close Behind.  (NBC News, 4/18/2016)
Donald Trump has extended his support in the 2016 presidential race among Republican primary voters to a record 40 percent as the field has narrowed, but he is still locked in a tight battle with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for dominance, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows.  [emphasis added]
Trump has previously polled 40% or better in 13 national polls since late February.

In fact, his polling average as tracked by Real Clear Politics has dropped 2.7 percentage points since March 26.
