Voters in New York are heading to the polls today in the GOP and Democratic primaries today. Real estate mogul Donald Trump is hoping for a big victory in his home state tonight in order to stop the momentum of Texas Senator Ted Cruz and secure a majority of the Empire State’s 95 delegates.
Over the past several weeks Senator Cruz has closed the gap with Donald Trump through a superior ground game in states with–what some might call–arcane methods of apportioning delegates. Despite Cruz’s recent successes, Trump is still leading the Texas senator 744-559, a margin that is likely to grow following tonight’s New York primary if recent polls are accurate.
Governor John Kasich remains at the back of the pack with 144 delegates. Despite the Ohio governor’s presidential bid remaining a long-shot, he may still collect some of New York’s delegates today, and some polls even have him ahead of Senator Ted Cruz.
Here are the delegate totals as they stand today:
