The campaign trail is heating up, and with the Indiana presidential primary just a week away, recent polls by WTHR and Howey Politics Indiana reveal which candidates are in the lead.

In the GOP race, Donald Trump is polling at 37 percent, but Ted Cruz isn't far behind with 31 percent.

John Kasich comes in third with 22 percent.

It's important to point out that this poll was taken a day or two before the Cruz-Kasich alliance, so we'll see how that affects future polls.

In the Democratic race, Hillary Clinton tops Bernie Sanders, but only by a 3 percent advantage.

Clinton is polling at 48 percent while Sanders comes up short with 45 percent.

In addition to the presidential primary, new statewide polls are also tallying up the race for Indiana Senate and this fall's governor's race.

In the Indiana Senate Republican primary, Todd Young has a strong lead. According to the latest polls by WTHR and Howey Politics Indiana, Young stands at 43 percent. Marlin Stutzman sits at 31 percent, and 26 percent are undecided or refused.

WTHR and HPI also did a poll for November's governor race, which is turning out to be a tight one.

Governor Mike Pence holds the top spot with 49 percent, but Democratic challenge John Gregg isn't too far off. He stands at 45 percent, and 6 percent are undecided.
