Donald Trump is far ahead of the Republican field on Long Island and Hillary Clinton holds a commanding lead in the Democratic contest, according to a Newsday/News 12/Siena College survey of Nassau and Suffolk county voters.
And in a potential head-to-head matchup, Long Islanders give Trump a 3 percentage point edge over Clinton

if trump could somehow snatch ny or cali away from the dems that would be game set match
too bad the 8 million people in NYC lean HARD left.
staten island and pockets of Queens and Brooklyn, that’s about it for the right.
The upstate vote would have to turn out en masse!!
cause all the NYC dems I know hate the guy.
But that NJ and NY ae even in play is a good sign
This is a YUUUUUUUUGE signal folks. I honestly believe Trump will win and win big. If this stays true in NY then Trump will walk away with the win.
Been saying that since last June. Tied on longuyland means he wins NY. If he wins NY he’s POTUS. If he wins NY he wins 40 states. If he wins 40 states he has true mandate. With a mandate he can implement an agenda and Make America Great Again !
Go Trump! Go USA !
Hillary will have Trump Tower condemmed if she wins.
Any Trump building.
Key words ...”Long Islanders “
She’ll win the Manhattan vote
Actually, she’ll probably win all 5 boroughs
I was born and raised on Long Island. Now it has big chunks of foreigners and minorities.
Good to see that its at least in play for this election cycle. DemRats ruined my Long Island—hope the majority choose correct this go round,
So much for the “he can’t beat Hillary” meme.
Trump could win Long Island, but not Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. People there are pre-committed to Mrs. Bill.
Trump will win NY, NJ, MA easily.
If it even a contest in the Big Apple, the upstate could win it when considering how the union voters seem to be breaking for Trump. The revelations of Ford, Nabisco and Carrier have them in fear of their job futures.
It’s up to you New York, New York.
Hillaryous Rotten Criminal ALERT!
Trump’s gameplan so far has not focused on NY/NJ yet. I think when Fl is done after March 15th it might be time to focus on his home state. The Clintons are NY carpetbaggers but Trump is a native son. You can bet he will fight like hades for NY— just not yet.
It’s encouraging, but Trump will need better numbers there. LI is about 20-25% of the statewide vote, so about 60-40 should make it competitive. Its good to see Hillary at only 38 though.
Naw, Hitlery would get destroyed on Staten Island, but would take the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.
The Bronx is a lost cause. If Trump were to have any legit chance of taking New York, he'd have to narrow the margin in the reasonable parts of Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Trump would need more than Long Island to offset the crazy Democrat edge in the outer boroughs. He'd need to take Hillary's "home" county of Westchester, the Hudson Valley and sweep upstate.
The Upstate voters won’t be able to take the vote from the City voters - there just aren’t enough of them.
The state has a population of about 19 million, about 1/2 live in the City.. Of that 19 million, 6 million are black or Hispanic.
There may be some unions that turn on Hillary, but I’d be surprised if the majority did.
No Jim winning NY will not be easy. Those NYC fools elected DeBlahzero with almost 70% of the vote. NYC liberal jews vote DemoRat like their religion. Minorities galore there as well. If Trump can win his home state the last thing it will be is easy but it looks to be in play. That’s a small miracle in itself.
