After heavily courting the Orthodox Jewish community, presidential hopefuls will be competing in Tuesday’s primary election in New York.
Businessman Donald Trump is leading his GOP opponents by 33 points while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a 13-point edge over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, ABC News reports.
A WNBC/WSJ/Marist poll released April 15 shows Trump with 54 percent support of Republican primary voters. Ohio Governor John Kasich is in second place with 21 percent and Texas Senator Ted Cruz with 18 percent.
ABC News political analyst Matt Dowd said that it seems pretty clear that Trump is going to win the state, and he could stand to pick up a sizable amount of the state’s 95 delegates.
Trump didn’t campaign in Jewish areas but he invited the Jewish media, including COLlive.com, for an interview at Trump Tower in which he expressed his support for Israel.
According to recent polls by Baruch College/NY1 News and Quinnipiac, Clinton leads Sanders by 13 points while a Sienna College poll has Clinton up by 10 points.
