Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) came in a distant second at 21 percent, closely followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at 18 percent.

This is the first NBC/WSJ/Marist poll conducted in the Empire State during this election cycle, but its results are consistent with other polling, which has shown Trump enjoying an enormous advantage. There has not been such unanimity among pollsters on whether Kasich or Cruz stands in the overshadowed second-place slot, but most recent surveys concur that Kasich enjoys a small lead.

TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Trump at 54.4 percent, Kasich at 20.2 percent and Cruz at 18.3 percent.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll was carried out by live telephone interview from April 6-10. Pollsters surveyed 259 people likely to vote in the Republican primary, with a margin of error of 6.1 percentage points.
