Latest Election Presidential polls 2016: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton lead in Quinnipiac poll ahead of NY primary

A new poll shows Donald Trump has a strong lead over his opponents in the New York primary while Hillary Clinton is keeping Bernie Sanders at bay.

According to the Quinnipiac poll released Thursday, Trump leads Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich with 56 percent of the vote among likely primary voters. Cruz and Kasich are polling at 20 percent and 19 percent respectively.

Eighty percent of Trump voters and 78 percent of Kasich voters also tell the Quinnipiac survey that they’ve “made up” their mind — compared to 57 percent of Cruz voters.

In the Democrat race, Clinton is ahead of Sanders 54 percent to 42 percent. While Clinton is leading among many voters, Sanders has the lead with younger voters (ages 18 to 44) and voters that describe their political philosophy as “very liberal.”

There’s still plenty of time for candidates on both sides to gain ground over the next few weeks. The New York primary will be held Tuesday, April 19.

    It is my prayer for this nation we get President Donald Trump. No one else will go though our government with a fine tooth comb to root out the corruptions and waste. They all talk the talk but never walk the walk. It is who Donald Trump is as a businessman. His life is talk the talk and walk the walk. Thank You! Donald Trump for putting yourself out for our nation. We the intelligent people get it.
