Trump crushes it in New York

(Paul Mirengoff) Until tonight, Donald Trump had not reached 50 percent in any primary or caucus race, as far as I can recall. In his home state of New York, however, Trump right around 60 percent of the vote, with almost 90 percent of precincts having reported. John Kasich is in second place with 25 percent. Ted Cruz is at 15 percent. No one expected Cruz to do well in New York.
