Delegate math update

Last night Donald Trump swept his home state of New York, pulling in (so far) 60.5% of the vote and securing at least 89 of the 95 available delegates. John Kasich earned three delegates. Ted Cruz has zero. Three are still outstanding.

So what does this mean in terms of overall delegate count? It means that Trump extends his lead over Ted Cruz to 845-559. The Donald now has 48.6% of pledged delegates. He needs an additional 392 to reach the 1,237 required to secure the nomination. With 735 delegates still outstanding, Trump needs 53.3% of those remaining delegates to attain 1,237.

The next set of primaries comes next Tuesday, April 26, in which Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland & Pennsylvania are all in play.
