Pennsylvania poll: Trump 33, Kasich 30, Cruz 20

Kasich is a Pennsylvania native, raised in McKees Rocks, near Pittsburgh.

Trump, a New Yorker, often speaks of attending the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

Kasich has been on the rise for weeks. He was at just 3 percent in January and 15 percent in February.

“Kasich has closed the gap considerably,” pollster G. Terry Madonna said.

Madonna, who predicts a competitive Republican race, offers a caveat – higher voter turnout favors Trump, lower turnout would help Kasich.
