Poll: Trump has commanding 34-point lead in New York

by Jonathan Easley  |  published on April 8, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump holds a commanding 34-point lead over rival Ted Cruz in New York, a new poll found.

Trump receives 56 percent support among likely Republican voters in an Emerson College Polling Society survey released Friday. Cruz follows, with 22 percent, and John Kasich has 17 percent.

There are 95 delegates up for grabs in New York’s April 19 primary.

Trump needs a big victory in his home state if he hopes to reach the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination before this summer Republican National Convention.

All three candidates have campaigned in the New York City area in recent days. The poll surveyed 321 people with a 5.4 percentage point margin of error.

    Did you all know that John Kasich is the candidate that the Hellary teams fears the most? His has done a marvelous job in Ohio with big cost reductions and some very favorable ratings. He is an experienced administrator. Trump is all big mouth NY City bluster and Cruz is an opportunist at any price. A visit to the KasichforPresident website will be an informative experience. Naturally, the leftist liberal press is downplaying his accomplishments but he is the thinking persons choice, regardless of political party affiliation. Listen, socialist Sanders wants to raise taxes and the old witch will be more of Bill (or did you forget ?)

    CRUZ, FIRST TERM U.S. SENATOR TRYING TO BE SOMETHING LIKE BARRACK OBAMA. TIME TOO FLUSH THE TOILET

  • Jeanette Eaton

    I live in Arkansas, and , as you know, we went for Trump. I have never been to New York and, as far as I know, don’t know anyone from New York, but I sincerely hope that all of you are right. I am a Republican but not the kind of Republican that is trying to manipulate this campaign. I am beginning to understand that this is not a new deal, but that our eyes are being opened to what has been going on all along. The ones who are supposed to be Republicans and are supposed to be upholding the values of the Republican party and are supposed to be representing us while they are in Washington, having been elected by us are not Republicans. I just don’t see much difference between them and the Democrats. I am just a simple 69 year old grandma and I don’t get out much…am pretty much a “homebody”, but from where I sit here in Arkansas, that is what I see. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. I am just a simple old lady but I think I “see the light”. Just hope its not a train at the other end of the tunnel. If I am wrong, I would like to be enlightened.

  • Jim Matis

    NYC might not go GOP in the general, but the NY GOP primary voters CAN put the right man on the ballot for Trump to win the General Election in other states.

    • kathy diamond

      jIM mATIS, IF EVERYONE VOTES TRUMP SCREW THE CONVENTION !!!!!!!!!!!

  • MAD AS HELL

  • Richard Hennessy

    It doesn’t matter who wins the NY primary, because no Republican can carry NY in the general election. Probably the most liberal of the Republican candidates will win the primary. Thus, Cruz may finish third in the primary, since by far he’s the most conservative of the three candidates.

    • Robert

      Cruz is a GLOBALIST as are His Supporters on Wall Street, and also The New World Order Proponents G. Bush Sr., G. Bush Jr., and Jeb
      Bush who all support CRUZ, I wonder why that is?

    • BlessedtoServe

    • Roy Thomas

      A typical NYC attitude displayed here. Best they all stay there among their own kind, thinking NYC is the center of the universe. Enjoy the crowds, traffic tie ups, high taxes, political corruption, leftist elements and expensive everything. You deserve what you got there.

      • Timothy

        New York won’t be like Ohio ,Wisconsin bought by donors …

  • Mike

    Go Donald. It seems like Mr. Cruz is more concentrating on stealing delegates that on actually winning anything. I do hope he beats the pants off of Mr. Cruz. How about a V.P. for Mr. Cruz, though? In politics you never, know! That might be an unbeatable combination, for anyone!

    • Mike

      This is more obvious when looking at the “voting” that went on in Colorado this Sunday. What kind of horses*it are the Republicans playing? All delegates going to Ted Cruz? Without a vote being cast? Mr. Trump has every reason to be upset and so am I! This is politics at it’s worst! Screw Cruz! Mr. Trump. is my candidate and Colorado is OFF the map!

  • Evan

    Hope Trump gets all the delegates!
    GO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dawntoo

    Cruz is attempting to appeal to regional biases and hatred. We do not need another civil war. The one we had was bad enough. The leftists tried the same thing with the Confed flag burnings and monuments. Cruz is divisive. The people are not buying it.

    We the NYers get to say what NY values are. Not a Bible thumping hypocrite preaching down to us. Like Trump said NY values were displayed on 911 : helping each other, bravery, strength, resolve and a will to survive.

    Cruz is just trying to divide the American people to advance his political ambitions. Good for Cruz and bad for America.

    Trump 2016.

    • Richard Hennessy

      Post 9/11 was a unique situation. The prevailing NY political values have been displayed by the most recent elections of the governor and mayor of NY City. I would think Republicans in NY State would be tired of being subjected to the policies of liberal legislators elected by NY City, which by virtue of population, control elections in the State. Cruz is trying to defend the residents of most of the Country outside the corrupt major cities from big-city politicians and policies. I would think Republicans throughout the State would get behind that, and would not help to allow NY City to dictate their presidential nominee. If they back Trump, they’re allowing NY City to prevail once again.

      • Robert

        Who the Hell are you to tell New Yorkers how to vote.

        • runnindeer

          He is a sold out Ted Cruz supporter that actually thinks that New York doesn’t count because New York will go democrat full throttle in the election, and he believes that Donald Trump is really a Democrat because he has Democrat friends and associates. Look back at all of his post and you can see exactly who he is and how he thinks. He feels just like Lyin Ted Cruz does about New York and all of New York citizens.

        • Roy Thomas

          Typical NY mindless defensive bluster.

        Mysteriously died??? wonder if Slick Willy’s name was in that book too, if so, not so much a mystery as is a who done it for whom.

        • Upaces

          Nawww, Slick Willy had nothing to do with it. The “Clinton Body Bag List”? The Clintons are Serial Killers.
          Cruz was accused of committing Adlultry several times.
          He should have just dropped the subject. National Enquirer came out with the news first. CRUZ COULD NOT DENY something like this. That’s right before he bagan blasting Trump about his divorces, etc…

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            probably, nothing would surprize me anymore

        • Michael Lloyd

          Hillary done it.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            could have

        • Roy Thomas

          And let’s not forget Vince Foster and Judge Scalia – the unexplained deaths of both unreported by the leftist liberal press.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            Yup

    • Ucky Light

      very well said ! Go Donald !

    • BlessedtoServe

      • Roy Thomas

        Really? I suppose you never traveled in the subways or viewed the dress and mannerisms of the lower elements there. As we say of NYC people : you can hear ’em before you see “em.

        • Timothy

          R.t.You can go anywhere and find it you town has it to ..

        • BlessedtoServe

          I guess comprehension is not your strong suit, I lived there for nine months, and yes I did take the subways, went to NJ, and all of the bouroughs, everyone was nice…walked the streets at night coming home from work, cabys were fun and very accomodating, loved the cops and fireman….all very happy loving people….but then there are people always looking for the bad in everything….the glass is half empty people….you must be one of them…

    • runnindeer

      I love New York values . I have friends and relatives in New York and New Jersey that worked on 9/11 along side of others that displayed what values New yorkers have. My family and I love Donald Trump and will continue to support him regardless of the lies from media or the anti- Trump crowd. Lyin Ted ! The snake oil salesman that has convinced too many people that he is good because of his’ GOD bless you’ remark after every speech.

    • Michael Lloyd

      Cruz’s political ambitions are also very closely tied to his 7th Mountain Dominion religion.
