ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz greeted patrons at an Indiana diner, as he makes his final attempts to win votes before the state's primary election on Tuesday (May 3). A new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist opinion poll showed Republican rival Donald Trump with a wide lead in Indiana, 49 percent to 34 percent for Cruz and 13 percent for a third candidate, Ohio Governor John Kasich. Trump has said that if he wins the Indiana primary, the race for the Republican nomination will be over. Trump, who has amassed 996 delegates, according to an Associated Press count, has momentum behind him and looks increasingly likely to win the nomination outright, without a contested convention, perhaps when California votes on June 7. But Cruz maintained that the New York billionaire will not win the 1,237 delegates to seal the party nomination for president by the time the Republicans hold their convention in July.
