Wash­ing­ton: US pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Don­ald Trump is lead­ing his ri­vals for the Repub­li­can nom­i­na­tion by over 20 points in the up­com­ing pri­mary con­tests of New York and Penn­syl­va­nia, lat­est polls have re­vealed. D e mo c r a t i c fron­trun­ner Hil­lary Clin­ton also leads her pri­mary op­po­nent, Ver­mont se­na­tor Bernie San­ders, by dou­ble-dig­its in both states, ac­cord­ing to the polls re­leased on Sun­day by Fox News. The New York pri­maries are s c he du l e d f o r Apr i l 10 a nd Penn­syl­va­nia on April 26. The New York Fox News poll showed Trump poised to cross t he 5 0% st atewide t hresh­old needed to cap­ture a l l of New York’s statewide Repub­li­can del­e­gates. Trump would need to win a ma­jor­ity of votes in all of the state’s 27 con­gres­sional dis­tricts to clinch New York’s full 95-del­e­gate slate. Trump has 54% of sup­port com­pared to fel­low Repub­li­can hope­fuls Ohio gover­nor John Ka­sich’s 2 2% a nd Texas se­na­tor Ted Cruz’s 15%, ac­cord­ing to the Fox News sur­vey of likely New York Repub­li­can pri­mary vot­ers.
