Trump Blows Apart his Competition in New York

The latest New York poll by Optimus has placed Donald Trump well ahead of his competition.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 50%
  • John Kasich – 24%
  • Ted Cruz – 16%

Trump should be able to run away with New York. He is from New York City, understands New York values, and is a businessman that has created a massive corporate empire. Even though Trump talks badly about Wall Street and other financial institutions, he is a part of that society and it is in his best interests to protect it at all costs.

Kasich may be able to appeal to the GOP establishment, but most major Republicans aren’t looking at him as a serious candidate. He has won a single primary, in his home state of Ohio, and he more than likely will not win a single one beyond that.

As for Ted Cruz, his campaign has zero appeal in New York. He has openly criticized the state in the past and his pro-religious game will not win him any votes in this centrist to leftist state. Cruz will have to continue focusing on fringe states if he wants to try and challenge Trump for the nomination in July. However, his recent and embarrassing engagement of Trump over the issue of his wife has made him look petty and is clearly not the behavior of a presidential candidate.
