A new Los Angeles Times poll has Ted Cruz surging to within one point of Donald Trump in California, 36 percent to 35 percent, with John Kasich lagging at 14 percent.

That’s a big jump for Cruz from the last poll in early March which had Trump leading 38 percent to 27 percent with Kasich at 14 percent. Ex-Rubio voters appear to recognize that Cruz is the only candidate who can beat Trump.
