The exit polls were conducted by Edison Research for The Associated Press and television networks.A fall showdown between Clinton and Trump would pit one of Democrats’ most experienced political figures against a first-time candidate who is deeply divisive within his own partyCruz and other Republicans have argued that Trump would be roundly defeated in the general election, denying their party the White House for a third straight term.Republican leaders spent months dismissing Trump as little more than an entertainer who would fade once voting startedCruz was among those who actively tried to align themselves with Trump and called him “terrific.”As Trump began to pick up wins, Cruz became more critical of his rival’s policiesStill, his torrent of attacks Tuesday was by far the most pointed and personal of the campaign to date.Trump has now won seven straight primary contests and has 80 percent of the delegates needed to secure the GOP nominationWith his victory in Indiana, Trump now has at least 1,041 delegatesCruz has 565 and Ohio GovJohn Kasich has 152 {"slots":{"1":["pageTitle","It's almost locked up: Donald Trump dashes Ted Cruz's hopes in Indiana",3],"2":["pageType","article cr-link",3],"3":["author","The Associated Press",3],"5":["section","Elections, News, Politics",3]}} More The Associated Press.
