DONALD TRUMP Breaks 50% in New York – Ted Cruz in 3rd Place
Donald Trump broke 50% in the latest Monmouth University poll released Wednesday.
Trump has 52% support followed by John Kasich and Ted Cruz in third place.
The best Ted Cruz can hope for is for his allies in the Black Lives Matter movement to shut down another Trump rally. That way Ted Cruz can join the liberal media again and blame Donald Trump for the violent protesters who crash his mega-rallies.
The Hill reported:
Donald Trump has a more than two-to-one lead over his closest rival, John Kasich, in the Republican presidential front-runner’s home state of New York, a new poll finds.
A Monmouth University survey released Wednesday shows Trump taking 52 percent support, followed by Kasich at 25 percent. Ted Cruz has 17 percent.
The April 19 primary in New York will go a long way toward determining whether Trump can reach the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the GOP nomination outright and avoid a contested convention.
At Trump’s current level of support, he’s on pace to take a strong majority of the state’s 95 delegates, and it appears that he may run the board.
“If this result holds in every single congressional district, Trump will walk away with nearly all of New York State’s delegates,” said Monmouth University pollster Patrick Murray.
A majority of New York Republicans — 57 percent — said Trump’s myriad controversial remarks, from musing about punishing women who get abortions should they be made illegal to encouraging a nuclear arms race in Asia, will have no impact on how they vote in the primary.
In our conservative estimates Donald Trump will win a majority of New York delegates in his quest to win the nomination outright by June.
Ted Cruz will be eliminated from contention by April 26th.
