GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has cemented a 35-point lead in New York a week ahead of the Empire State's delegate-rich primary, a new poll shows.

The Quinnipiac University survey
released Tuesday afternoon has Trump with 55 percent, Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 20 percent and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 19 percent.

"Donald Trump is big in his home state," the poll's assistant director Maurice Carroll said in a statement.

Among likely GOP voters, Trump leads in every group, from tea party voters to moderate to liberal Republicans, and among both men and women of every age group, and in every region, the poll finds.

White born-again evangelical Christians are more closely divided, with 41 percent for Trump, 37 percent for Cruz and 16 percent for Kasich, according to the survey.

Ninety-five delegates are in play in the April 19 contest. Trump's delegate count is currently 755, Cruz has 545 and Kasich holds 143, according to Real Clear Politics.

A total of 1,237 are needed to win the GOP nomination.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton tops Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders 53-40, the poll finds.

According to the survey, Clinton leads 65-28 percent among black voters, 55-38 percent among women, 48-43 percent among men, and 50-45 percent among white voters; she's behind Sanders 55-36 among voters 18-44 years old.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
