It's Trump-Clinton in Maryland

from CNN
A new Washington Post/University of Maryland poll shows Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton leading among Maryland voters, three weeks before the state's presidential primary.

Both candidates, their respective party's front-runners, are coming off losses Tuesday in the Wisconsin primary.

Trump has a 10-point lead over Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 41% to 31%, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is in third with 22%.

Clinton leads her rival Bernie Sanders, 55% to 40%, according to the poll. Her support in Maryland mirrors strengths in previous primary contests, leading Sanders among African-American voters, as well as those who identify as moderate and conservative Democrats.

A general election match-up against Trump also favors Clinton: She leads him by 35 points -- 63% to 28%.

Maryland will hold its presidential primary on April 26th with Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

The poll surveyed 1,503 Maryland adults between March 30-April 3. Among the sample of 539 Democrats the margin of error is plus or minus 5.5 percentage points and among the sample of 283 Republicans the margin of error is plus or minus 7.5 percentage points.
