Washington CNN —  

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.

Clinton leads Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders 54% to 42% in the Empire State, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.

On the Republican side, Trump is in first place with 56% support, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz trails with 20% and Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 19%.

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.
