Another Snapshot...

via Politico:

Donald Trump is poised to win New York in a landslide on Tuesday but he could leave as many as two-dozen critical delegates on the table by failing to win an outright majority in every corner of the state, according to new congressional district-level polling provided to POLITICO.

The survey from Republican firm Optimus Consulting shows Trump doubling his next closest competitor, John Kasich, 49 percent to 24 percent, with Ted Cruz far behind with 14 percent. But even as the survey has him leading in all 27 congressional districts, Trump’s margins will prove crucial in the hunt for New York’s 95 delegates, from Buffalo to Ithaca to Bethpage.

The survey is bad news for Cruz, who ran third in 25 of the 27 New York districts in the poll. Cruz faces a double-edged problem in his delegate chase. In some of the districts where Cruz runs best, Trump is flirting with or over the 50-percent line, meaning the businessman would take all three district delegates and leave Cruz empty-handed. In others, particularly in New York City, Kasich is still in a close battle for second place and the one delegate per district that could go to the runner-up.

Ugh. Vote Strategically > Open Convention > #NeverTrump
