US presidential polls 2016: Trump looks to win big in home state primary


New York, April 18: Real estate tycoon Donald Trump is aiming to win big in the primary to be held in New York, his home state, on Tuesday. Trump, who is leading the three-man race to become the Republican Party's nomination for the November elections, is eyeing to grab all 95 delegates in the offing.

Trump told his supporters at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in downtown Poughkeepsie on Sunday that his campaign has to win by huge numbers and appealed to them to back him overwhelmingly.

Trump, whose momentum in this primary season has been pegged back a bit in recent times, was also seen campaigning in his home state by taking an aggressive stand. He attacked the selection process, calling it a "corrupt" and "rigged" exercise to deny him the nomination.

Trump's opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich have conceded the popular vote to Trump in New York though both are trying to win a delegate or two so that they can minimise the gap in the race as much as possible.

Trump now has 744 delegates to his credit, followed by Cruz (559) and Kasich (144). To win nomination, a Republican candidate has to have 1,237 delegates.
