MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The latest polls show Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with double digit leads going into New York’s presidential primary on Tuesday.
On Sunday, Clinton had a ten point lead over rival Bernie Sanders.
The Sander’s campaign said polls often underestimate his strength, noting he drew 28,000 voters in Brooklyn.
“Although many could be independents,” said Sanders. “I think the fact that independents cannot participate in the primary here works against us because we usually win independents two to one.”
Even though GOP frontrunner Trump is forecast to win in New York, he took time over the weekend to bash the Republican party’s nominating rules.
“I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system,” he told a crowd of supporters.
Over the weekend, Senator Ted Cruz picked up all of Wyoming’s 14 delegates. He said Trump doesn’t handle losing well.
“We have won five in a row and Donald is upset, so he’s throwing a fit,” said Cruz.
The latest CBS poll shows Trump leading Cruz in New York by 33 points. Trump also has double digit leads in Pennsylvania and California, two more states with lots of delegates.
Five more eastern states – Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island – hold contests on April 26th.
