Trump Dominates in New York, Cruz Retreats

Ted Cruz is learning a hard lesson about the “New York values” he so openly criticized months ago. In the latest poll by Monmouth, Donald Trump led the way, followed by John Kasich, and a distant Cruz in third.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 52%
  • John Kasich – 25%
  • Ted Cruz – 17%

Trump embodies the New York City lifestyle of the 1980s. He is a businessman, understands the culture, is vulgar, and direct. He should have no issue winning New York and taking home a respectable amount of delegates in the process.

Kasich is a useless candidate at this point and he is only staying in the race to try and stall Trump’s advances. He will win a few delegates in New York, but will not win the primary or any other primaries for that matter. If he can prevent Trump for securing the nomination before the convention, he will consider his campaign a massive success.

Cruz has no friends in New York. He has openly insulted the state in the past and he embodies that creepy and religious Texan stereotype. He is judgemental, pretends to be a perfect Christian, and is everything that sensible people on the East Coast hate in a candidate. Expect a poor performance by him in New York, which will hurt his chances at defeating Donald Trump before the convention.
