The real estate mogul, who owns an estate in Bedford and golf clubs in Hopewell Junction and Briarcliff Manor, has stretched his lead in a New York Republican primary to 27 points over Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who are tied for second, the poll found.

On the Democratic side, the poll of registered voters in New York state found that Clinton is maintaining her 21-point lead over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, 55-34 percent, exactly the same as it was last month.

Sanders leads the four Republicans in Democrat vs. Republican general election matchups by between 19 and 37 points, while Clinton leads those same Republicans by 7-25 points.

Meanwhile, after winning the Louisiana primary and Kentucky caucuses Saturday, the Republican front-runner called on Rubio to drop out. This prompted a Rubio spokesman to insist that he is still very much in the running, according to media reports.

The poll also found that Trump was viewed favorably by 54 percent of Republicans and unfavorably by 67 percent of all New York voters. His lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is at 34 points, said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.

Meanwhile, the poll, which was conducted between Feb. 28 and March 3 -- before Michael Bloomberg announced that he will not enter the contest -- found that the if the former New York City mayor ran as an independent, he would get about one-quarter of the vote.

The billionaire business magnate announced Monday that he is staying out of the fray for fear that a three-way race would lead to Trump’s election, according to media reports.
