If you’re Ted Cruz, you are sweating at the prospect of the New York primary. He is not going to perform well in this primary because his campaign has zero appeal in this region of the United States. Modern Tea Party politics do not interest voters in the East Coast and his religiosity will not earn him any additional votes. On top of that, he is losing in the polls to John Kasich, who has only one a single primary, in his home state of Ohio.

Trump may be slipping in the national polls and had a rough two weeks in media, but New York is his domain and he should have no problem winning over voters and championing himself as a man who promotes “New York values.” A strong win in New York will greatly help Trump’s nomination bid. If he can follow this up with a split in California, Cruz will find it difficult to overtake Trump and will have to rely on a contested convention for a potential nomination.
