Trump secures NY after leading polls by large margin

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A hotel and real estate mogul will officially clinch the Republican vote in New York State.

Donald Trump secured the vote of Republicans in New York State by stumping across the state, missing no major city. During a stop in Buffalo, he hit his major points, guaranteeing he would build a wall and bring jobs back to Buffalo.

Those same loft goals he detailed in every city helped secure him cheers and votes, as he would go on to add New York State to the list of states he has under his belt.

He also has worked with local leaders in areas which support him, pointing out Congressman Chris Collins and Erie County Sheriff Tim Howard to be leaders within his New York campaign.

Despite his wins, many of which are by impressive margins, many critics say Trump may not secure as many delegates as needed to win the nomination before the party’s convention, which would lead to a brokered convention.

His opponents, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, didn’t pose much of a threat in New York State. Kasich was the only presidential candidate to avoid visiting Buffalo, and Cruz trailed Kasich in most polls.

At stake in New York are 95 total delegates, however it won’t be known how many Trump will secure until all votes are tallied. Complex rules mean Trump needs to win over 50 percent of the vote in every district to sweep the state.
