Donald Trump is ahead in New York by 43 points, according to a NY1/Baruch College poll released late Monday.

The poll, conducted on April 5-10 revealed:
  • Trump, 60 percent;
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 17 percent;
  • Florida Sen. Ted Cruz, 14 percent.
The poll questioned a random sample of 1,597 adults in New York State, including 1306 registered voters, 632 likely Democratic primary voters and 324 likely Republican primary voters. The poll carried a 5.8 percent margin of error.

"Trump is just killing it," Baruch College pollster Mickey Blum commented. "This could really be his road to getting enough to win it outright before he ever gets to that [Republican National] Convention."

The winner of New York's primary will get 95 delegates, with the statewide winner getting 14 and the others divided among the winners of the state's congressional districts, reports The Hill.

Trump is ahead in the delegate count, with 743 of the 1,237 delegates he needs to clinch the GOP presidential nomination without having to fight for it in an open or contested convention.

The Democratic Party race is much narrower, the poll found, with Hillary Clinton getting 50 percent and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders receiving 37 percent.

However, the poll put either Democrat ahead of Trump in a general election battle:
  • Clinton over Trump, 51 to 35 percent;
  • Sanders over Trump, 54 to 32 percent.
