New York Republican GOP Polls April 16 2016 Trump, Cruz

There is now less than a week left until the republican primary in New York. It is the only state that votes on April 19, which makes sure that it will receive a large amount of media attention.

Donald Trump has won the most states hitherto, however his momentum has been arrested somewhat by Ted Cruz victories in Utah and Wisconsin, as well as Colorado where Cruz won all 34 delegates without a popular vote.

Trump would now need to win 60% of the remaining delegates in order to win the nomination out right going into the Republican Convention held between July 18-21. Should Trump not obtain this amount of delegates then additional votes would be required and delegates would be free to defect to other candidates.

RealClearPolitics has a running average of the latest polls taken within the last few days which show the following percentages.

Donald Trump   53.4%
John Kasich     21.7%
Ted Cruz          17.6%
