Republican presidential candidate, Trump has won a big victory in the just concluded New York.

It would be recollected that just yesterday, Trump was rejected by many New Yorkers.

He was accused of being a racist and of distasteful attitude to New York values, amongst other fierce reactions.

However, the business tycoon has put all those behind him as he pulled a major victory in the primary.

The big challenge for victorious Trump now is whether his margin of victory will be great enough to clinch most of New York’s 95 delegates, which would make a big difference in his effort to avert a contested convention later in the summer.

According to CNNTrump will have to win more than 50% statewide and in each of New York’s 27 congressional districts to take that prize.

Early exit polls and results indicate he could clear that threshold statewide.

With 3% of the vote in at 9:15 p.m. ET, Trump was in the lead at 68.9% while Ohio Gov. John Kasich was at 18.5% and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was at 12.6%.

On the other end, the Democratic contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders could not immediately be called when polls closed at 9 p.m. ET. With 7% of the vote in at 9:15 p.m. ET, Clinton was ahead of Sanders 61.7% to 38.3%.

Results from the polls are still coming in but with the unveiling situation,Trump looks set to spread his lead over rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich.

This is a similar situation for Hillary Clinton who is currently leading in the poll against Brooklyn-born Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

As it remains victory will put Mrs Clinton and Mr Trump nearer to securing their nominations. DONALD TRUMP WINS BIG IN NEW YORK PRIMARY
