The Trump-Cruz feud was escalating as the poll was in the field over the past weekend, so the poll results may not reflect the complete impact of the struggle. Nor does it reflect the impact (if any) the charging of Trump’s campaign manager with battery, on the candidate’s support. That took place after the poll was completed. But the Trump-Cruz dispute is clearly something most Americans are not happy with. One thing that most Americans agree on is that Trump’s tweet threatening to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz was inappropriate. However, Trump’s actions gets some support, particularly from about a third of male GOP primary voters, though a majority in that group, like the overall majority, finds the tweet inappropriate.
