Candidates on both sides of the race should be encouraged by these results.
On the Democratic side the 31% undecided could break in a number of ways so really many of the candidates can view the numbers as they are still in the race (although many have a lot of work to do).
On the Republican side it really looks neck and neck…especially with 42% undecided. A 6% margin between Schulz and Cox is CLOSE and this race could come down to turn out in July.
