After Donald Trump absolutely DOMINATED last night’s New York primary, capturing over 60% of the Republican vote, new polling coming out of Connecticut has the GOP frontrunner smiling!
Connecticut votes next week, along with 4 other Northeast states, and Trump has comfortable leads in all 5 stats, including a 20 point lead in Connecticut.
Trump’s level of support among likely Republican voters is 48 percent, outperforming by 20 points his nearest competitor, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who earned 28 points. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finished a distant third with 19 percent and 5 percent undecided.
The results, which come hours after the Manhattan real-estate magnate scored a resounding victory in his home-state New York primary, show wide support for Trump among nearly all demographic and ideological groups. Kasich leads Trump by seven points among voters between the ages of 18 and 44.
Overall, three in four (74 percent) of Republican voters said they have made up their mind, while the remaining quarter said they could change the candidate they support. The share of certainty rises to 80 percent among likely Trump and Kasich voters, while roughly only half of Cruz’s supporters said they are firmly committed to voting for him next Tuesday.
During his victory speech last night in Trump Tower, the GOP frontrunner claimed that the race for the nomination was essentially over, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz should reevaluate whether or not he should continue his campaign!
Trump also stressed his dissatisfaction with the current primary process, especially the discrepancies between voters and who actually receives delegates in a particular state. Trump has made it clear that when he becomes president he will revamp the entire Republican primary process!
