Poll: Trump Dominates GOP Field in New York, Kasich Second

Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican presidential primary contest in New York, while OH Gov. John Kasich is solidifying his position as the second-place candidate in the state'south race, according to a new NBC four New York/ Wall Str Journal/ Marist poll.

The poll shows Trump getting the support of fifty-four % of the state'south likely Republican primary voters, unchanged from an NBC News/ Wall Str Journal / Marist poll published Monday, which was conducted by the same pollster.

Kasich presently garners twenty-five % support, with TX Sen. Ted Cruz in third space at sixteenth percent.

Kasich'south nine-point edge over Cruz has increased from just a three point disagreement (twenty-one % for Kasich, eighteen % for Cruz) in the earlier poll released April eleven.

The results are promising for Trump, who hopes to sweep New York's ninety-five delegates following Tuesday by winning a majority of the vote statewide and in each of the state'south congressional districts.

Kasich performs most competitively among more moderate voters (who support him thirty-five % to Trump's fifty-four percent) and college graduates (who back him thirty-two % to Trump's forty-eight percent).

But Trump continues to lead in every demographic grouping in the NY poll, and his fans stay the most enthusiastic obstruct of voters, with seven-in-ten saying they strongly support him.

The NBC four New York / Wall Str Journal/ Marist poll was conducted April ten through April thirteen. The edge of mistake for three hundred thirteen likely Republican primary voters is +/- 5.5 percent.
