Hillary Clinton leads Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders 54% to 42%
Donald Trump tops Texas Sen. Ted Cruz 56% to 20%
New York looks set to deliver both presidential front-runners big primary victories on April 19, with Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump sporting double-digit leads in their home state in a new poll.
The Quinnipiac poll also found that the New York remains solidly blue, as both Democratic candidates would soundly defeat the Trump in a general election match-up.
Clinton, who served eight years as the U.S. senator from New York, leads Trump, a New York City native and icon, 53% to 33% there, while Sanders, who grew up in Brooklyn, would defeat the Republican front-runner at a similar margin, 56% to 32%.
Alternatively, Clinton beats Cruz in a hypothetical general election match-up in New York at 53% to 32%, while Kasich runs closest, drawing 41% to the former secretary of state’s 46%.
Sanders tops Cruz 56% to 28% and Kasich 57% to 37% in New York general election contests, according to the poll.
The poll, conducted from March 22-29, surveyed 1,667 registered voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points. The survey includes 457 Republican likely primary voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 percentage points and 693 Democratic likely primary voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
