The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Lead the Latest NBC Poll

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton came out on top of the latest NBC News/WSJ national poll.

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 50%
  • Bernie Sanders – 48%

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 40%
  • Ted Cruz – 35%
  • John Kasich – 24%

As the primaries intensify, Trump and Clinton continue to watch their leads dwindle away. Both candidates will more than likely win their parties nomination, but it is not a forgone conclusion like it was once.

For the Republicans, Trump is feeling the heat of Ted Cruz, who continues to close the gap on him. On Tuesday, New Yorkers will vote in their state’s primary and it should help Trump pad his numbers. His presence in New York state will help him secure a decent amount of delegates and show voters that he is capable of winning important states. However, the next major test for Trump will take place in California, where he isn’t polling strongly.

For Clinton, she is still leading Sanders, but her normal delegate vote isn’t as high as it once was. While she has only 1,289 pledged delegates to Sander’s 1045, she is still clobbering him when it comes to superdelegates, where she has 469 to his 31. New York will be a major test for both candidates, and depending on either of their performances, it could be a major boost or the killing blow for either campaign.
