Decisive wins in Wisconsin boosted U.S. presidential hopefuls Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Bernie Sanders as they chase the front-runners, building momentum as they gear up for the New York primary in two weeks.Cruz's emphatic victory in Wisconsin Tuesday slowed Trump's progress in amassing the needed convention delegates and increased the chances that Republicans will be faced with a rare contested convention in Cleveland in July.The Republican race now turns to New York, which votes on April 19 . Trump needs some decisive victories in coming primary votes to show he is still on the way to assembling the 1,237 delegates needed for the Republican presidential nomination.Those who oppose Trump are becoming increasingly resigned to the fact that Cruz is unlikely to obtain 1,237 delegates – doing so would require winning more than 80 percent of the remaining delegates.A Reuters/Ipsos poll Tuesday showed Cruz about even with Trump among Republicans nationally, as his recent gains mark the first time since November that a rival has threatened Trump's standing at the head of the Republican pack.
