Good news for Donald Trump in the latest NY1-Baruch College poll where 60% of New York Republicans support Donald Trump in the April 19 primary:

Trump even thanked New Yorkers for their support, kindly giving Ted Cruz an extra 1% in the poll:

The only problem is those same New Yorkers support Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders a lot more than they do Donald Trump (emphasis ours):
In a general election, Clinton or Sanders beat Trump in New York. Our poll found Clinton winning 51 percent to 35 percent. Sanders would trounce Trump even more decisively: 54 percent to 32 percent.
Those results may be fueled in part by New Yorkers’ opinions of the candidates. Nearly 60 percent of state voters have an unfavorable view of Trump. A plurality of voters also has an unfavorable view of Clinton. Sanders does better.
#NewYorkValues apparently means voting for a Democrat.
