This is complete speculation, but I would imagine Trump benefits the most from potential voters that are not included in any type of polling data.

I just can't see Hillary getting people that have never voted before or been involved in politics out to the polls to vote for her.

Mike does a good job reporting on the Democratic side.... no doubt a Hilliary supporter. She is telling her crowds what they want to hear..... Have you notice how Hilliary has been changing her position, copying points from BERNIE, and TRUMP.

One key topic have not heard much is about the Clinton's work repealing the Glass Steagle Act, and Bush passing (driven by big banking). The leading domino that lead to our recession in the early 2000's, which directly lead to all the foreclosures across the country. How much has big banking been contributing to Hilliary's election?

The two key points I like about Trump is he is a business man and he is self funding. No doubt he will shake Washington.


TRUMP 2016

No it isn't. No evidence it will be.

The state is overwhelmingly Democrat, she was a very popular senator there, and contrary to popular belief Donald Trump, while known in NY for years, is not particularly well thought of there.

He's not going to win NY.

But he doesn't really need to anyway. He needs to concentrate on the purple/swing states and perhaps historically blue rust belt states because he has a shot in a lot of those.

LOL, I'm not from New York, and I'm not terribly impressed with NYC, but why do conservative republicans ALWAYS go about bashing democrats? Do you know any NYC based democrats who fit your description? Other than one comment about growing a crop, I haven't seen anything in this thread that bashes republicans to the extent of this post.

New York is a traditional blue state but trump said NY is in play if he is the nominee so maybe it's quite a long shot for him.
Any Republican candidate is expected to lose and lose badly in CA, NY and IL. Those are states that the GOP never wins in the general election. Gotta go back to the Reagan/Bush Sr days when the Dems were in complete disarray to find the Republicans actually winning those states.

At this point, the primaries on both sides are more competitive than the polls said they would be. Based on the polls, you'd think Bernie and Cruz wouldn't have won a single state, but they have. Obviously, the polls haven't been as accurate as we're accustomed to them being. Clinton and Trump both still look to be a lock for the nomination. We'll see what we see in the general election. Personally, I don't expect Trump to win New York. I think Trump's faithful supporters are a bit naive if they expect it. Doesn't mean that Hillary wins the entire election. It's just a small moral victory for Hillary to beat Donald in NY.

Doesn't matter much to me, I'll be voting for the best candidate -- Gary Johnson -- anyways.

800 people that were registered voters? OK. Yeah, I'm not going to worry about that.

whereas the Trump voter will be motivated to show up.
Didn't we hear the same crap in 2012?

Rinse and repeat.

Trump was supposed to win pretty much all the states this past weekend according to polls - so much for "polls".
The polls are inaccurate, for starters, I never get involved with the polls and since I'm an Independent, can't vote in the primaries....

There are a whole lot of us out there...
