No surprise, the second the polls closed Trump was projected the winner. What remains to be seen is how many delegates he gets.

(added) As of 11:30 p.m., Trump has approximately 60% of the vote and is credited with 89 delegates, but that likely will go up a couple more as more final results come in. Kasich has 3, and Cruz none. So Trump did what he needed to do. But he’s still on a trajectory to fall short of 1237 on the first ballot.

A number of commenters on TV and Twitter also are pointing out the obvious — the Republican electorate in NY State is small relative to Democrats, so there remains no reason to believe Trump could carry the state in a general election.

Hillary v. Bernie currently not called, but “leaning” Hillary. Networks call it for Hillary.


Before the close:

Today, New York votes. The Empire State’s primary has not been without drama. Independent voters who never registered with a party requested a temporary restraining order that would’ve opened New York’s closed primary to all voters. That request was denied by the judge.

The magic 1,237 delegate number is unlikely to be reached by any candidate before the convention. Up for grabs in New York are 95 delegates.

Donald Trump has held a steady lead in the polls, hovering around 30%. Behind him is John Kasich around 20%, followed by Cruz at 18%.

On the Democratic side:
