Donald Trump has more than doubled his lead over Ted Cruz in the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll, but the Texas senator would beat the Republican front-runner by eight points in a hypothetical contest, according to results released Thursday.

Here is the breakdown of the national survey of 400 GOP primary voters:
  • Trump: 33 percent.
  • Cruz: 20 percent.
  • Marco Rubio: 13 percent.
  • Ben Carson: 12 percent.
  • Chris Christie and Jeb Bush: 5 percent each.
  • Carly Fiorina, John Kasich and Rand Paul: 3 percent each.
  • Mike Huckabee: 1 percent.
Trump's 13 percent lead over Cruz is more than double his 5 percent lead in a December survey.

In a hypothetical match-up between Trump and Cruz, here are the results:
  • Cruz: 51 percent.
  • Trump: 43 percent.
In a match-up between Trump and Rubio, here are the results:
  • Trump: 52 percent.
  • Rubio: 45 percent.
The NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll was conducted between Saturday and Wednesday, with a margin of error of 4.9 percent.
