Trump Trounces On East End; Clinton Captures Close Contest

Nearly three-quarters of East End Republicans who visited the polls chose Donald Trump.  DANA SHAW
Apr 20, 2016 11:45 AM

Donald J. Trump’s broad margin of victory in the New York State GOP primary on Tuesday night was magnified even more on the East End, where nearly three-quarters of Republicans who flocked to polls cast votes for the flamboyant and controversial businessman.

Meanwhile, former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s closer but still convincing victory in the Democratic primary was tighter on the East End than the statewide totals. Ms. Clinton won New York with 58 percent of the vote, beating expectations, but in the 1st Congressional District she got just 52 percent of the vote, to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’s approximately 48 percent.

Ms. Clinton, who was expected to do well in the urban centers of New York City, garnered more than 1 million votes cast statewide, securing an easy victory and a large chunk of the 247 Democratic delegates being given their marching orders by voters on Tuesday.

A former East Hampton Town supervisor, and one-time State Democratic Party chairwoman, Judith Hope, was the top vote-getter among all Democratic delegates in the district, meaning she is assured to be one of longtime close friend Ms. Clinton’s supporting votes at the party convention this summer.

Mr. Trump, a New York native, had also been expected to win the state in accordance with polling, though some had hoped that displeasure with some of his more controversial statements had started to whittle away at his popularity and could pull Ohio Governor John Kasich or Texas Senator Ted Cruz within striking distance. For most of those who picked up Republican ballots on Tuesday, Mr. Trump’s bombast did not seem to be a concern. He got more than 60 percent of the total votes cast statewide, and on the East End his popularity was even more solid—as local U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin had predicted in recent weeks.

In the 1st Congressional District, where Mr. Zeldin is a first-term Republican congressman representing the East End, Mr. Trump appears to have gotten slightly less than 73 percent of all votes cast in the Republican primary, according to Suffolk County Board of Elections results. Mr. Kasich, running in second, as he did statewide, had just over 17 percent, and Mr. Cruz garnered about 9 percent in the district.

Dr. Ben Carson, who suspended his presidential campaign last month but remained on the Republican ballot, got 347 votes in the district.

BOOM ! Donald Trump basked in his New York primary victory from Trump Tower on Tuesday night, declaring that the GOP nominating process is all but over.

“We don’t have much of a race anymore,” Trump said. Sen. Cruz is just about mathematically eliminated.”

Trump is poised to take a strong majority of New York's 95 delegates on Tuesday night

Trump won the New York Primary not the general election, not understanding your post. I would like the republican nominee to be Trump.He needs momentum going to N.J. and Pennsylvania. No momentum, contested convention.

When Trump was serving as the president of his family’s real estate company, the Trump Management Corporation, in 1973, the Justice Department sued the company for alleged racial discrimination against black people looking to rent apartments in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

The lawsuit charged that the company quoted different rental terms ...more

Trump, Cruz, or Kasich?? Trump is the obvious choice. One of them had to win. But when you look at the overall number of electorates, the general election winner is clear. Yes, there are Trump supporters in every corner, but enough to win a general?? Doubtful.

I assume you are referring to the hiring of illegal immigrants. Yes, I agree. Anyone caught doing this should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Funny though, I've never seen that happen. Not once. I wonder why that is?

Hurrah for The Donald! Clearly, he is the people's choice. Sadly, the fact is that no matter how many votes he garners in the primaries, the Republican Establishment will deny him the nomination at the convention.

When this comes to pass, here's hoping that he and his supporters will do the only honorable thing and run a 3rd party candidacy to show these king makers that we live in a democracy!

HighHat,

You seem like a level headed guy. How do you justify Trump's inconsistencies, half truths, outright lies, lack of depth of understanding of many issues, and willingness to nuke anyone who gets in his way? Additionally, how will be do things that the majority of the congress perceive to be incoherent when it comes to getting congressional approval? What will we do when the art of the deal falls short on his major platform issues?

Just curious.

Sadly, our country has gotten to the point that we need someone like Trump. I am all for immigration as long as they come to our country legally like my grandparents did. There are many out there that did come legally, became citizens and pay taxes. Unfortunately, our country hasn't figured out how to stop ILLEGAL immigration!

And, since you're too blind to see it, Trump doesn't care about the Presidency or what it means. All he's after is his name in the history books. We've had quite a few a******s in the White House in 240 years. He'd simply be the most recent one.
