Washington (Talk Media News) — Donald Trump is poised to more than make up for setbacks in Colorado and Wisconsin next week if his latest poll numbers in New York are any indication.
The latest polls show Trump far ahead of his Republican opponents in the state and over the 50 percent threshold across all of its 27 congressional districts, enough to allow him to claim hold on all of the state’s 95 delegates.
New York awards fourteen delegates to the winner of the state and 81 are awarded evenly by district, a total of three each.
The New York native is hoping to put a loss in Wisconsin and a loss of delegates to Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) behind him with a big him in his home state as he inches closer to the magic number of 1,237 needed to clinch the nomination.
To this point, Trump has 743 delegates and also the only realistic opportunity to clinch the nomination ahead of the party’s convention in July.
Trump’s opponents, Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich hope to amass enough delegates to force a contested convention and take the nomination away from him in July.
