Posturing, Posing, Polling and Press Releases:
The latest polls:
--A new CBS News Battleground Tracker poll shows TED CRUZ leading DONALD TRUMP by six-points in Wisconsin ahead of tomorrow's primary --43-to-37-percent-- with JOHN KASICH at 18-percent.
However, that same poll gives Trump a 31-point lead in his home state of New York, and a big lead in Pennsylvania as well. (Pacelli)
High School hijinks:
Croswell-Lexington High School in Michigan is offering a unique class for students this year.
The school, 80-miles north of Detroit, is now teaching taxidermy. You know, the art of stuffing dead animals. Believe it or not, the class is such a hit that they've had to turn eager students away. The 13-week course offers teens the chance to bring in road kill or an animal they've killed themselves. Senior MATT BARKER explains, "It's a very hands-on class." (Still)
Congratulations to Jewish businessman MILES NADAL, who just bought a piece of Roman Catholic history. TMZ.com reports the car aficionado dropped a cool $300-thousand dollars on the Fiat 500 Lounge hatchback that POPE FRANCIS rode through New York City and Washington, D.C. last year. Word is he plans to show off the vehicle in his personal auto museum and the hip ride even came with a free blessing by a church bigwig. (Lee)
