The race to become the next US President has narrowed down to two New Yorkers – Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
As the primary season enters its last lap, the race for next White House occupant seems to have narrowed down to two New Yorkers – real estate mogul Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Ahead of the Indiana primary elections, major news outlets and political pundits projected that the Democratic presidential nomination is likely to fall into the lap of Clinton, while Trump is now expected to emerge as the GOP nominee.
According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 84% of voters nationwide think Trump will lead the Republican ticket in November, while 85% say the same about Democratic front-runner Clinton. Clinton is the choice of 51% of Democratic voters, while 49% of Republican voters say they would prefer Trump to be their nominee.
Bing, the major search engine of Microsoft on Monday predicted that at the end of the Republican primary process in California on June 7, Trump would have 1,366 delegates, 125 more than the 1,237 needed to become the GOP presidential nominee.
Similarly, Clinton would have 2,676 delegates, nearly 300 more than the 2,383 required to become the first ever woman to be a presidential nominee of a major political party. It would also be one of the rarest occasion that the candidates would be from the same city and having their headquarters in New York.
