WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — More than half of likely New York State Republican voters say they support billionaire businessman Donald Trump, followed by 21 percent who support Ohio Governor John Kasich and 18 percent who favor Texas Senator Ted Cruz, according to the poll.
"The road to the convention goes through New York for both the Democrats and Republicans," Marist College Institute for Public Opinion Director Lee Miringoff said on Monday. "Right now, the front-runners look like they will erase recent setbacks and add significantly to their delegate margins."
Meanwhile, some 55 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in New York State say they favor former two-time Senator Hillary Clinton, compared to 41 percent who support US Senator Bernie Sanders.
The results of the poll come ahead of the New York State’s April 19 primaries.
