Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is busy fundraising off his victory in Wisconsin. But after this bombshell announcement, Donald Trump has two reasons to smile.
With 92 delegates and a possible winner-take-all victory, Trump isn’t just leading in New York, but he’s up by 31%, according to an average of recent polling!
Monmouth University just confirmed this today after the most recent survey of likely Republican voters in New York. This is epic:
Donald Trump is positioned for a sweeping primary win in his home state of New York according to the Monmouth University Poll. He currently has the support of an outright majority of likely voters, a margin that suggests he could win nearly every delegate awarded by the state.
Currently, 52% of likely Republican primary voters in New York support Trump compared to 25% who support John Kasich and 17% who will vote for Ted Cruz. Trump has more than half the vote in New York City and Long Island (58%) and Upstate New York (52%), and nearly half in Western New York (47%). Kasich does slightly better upstate (28%) and west (26%) than he does in NYC/LI (22%). Cruz does slightly better in the west (21%) than he does upstate (15%) and in NYC/LI (14%).
As Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University, opined, “If this result holds in every single congressional district, Trump will walk away with nearly all of New York State’s delegates.”
And if that wasn’t enough good news for Trump fans leading up to the RNC convention, he’s also the clear favorite in the upcoming Pennsylvania primary too. Wow:
Trump leads among likely Republican primary voters with 39 percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 30 percent and Kasich with 24 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.
