Mr. Trump looks likely to carry handily New York primary on April 19. A Monmouth University poll Wednesday found that 52% of likely Republican primary voters in New York supported Mr. Trump, trailed by Mr. Kasich with 25% and 17% for Mr. Cruz. The margin could allow Mr. Trump to sweep nearly all of the state’s 95 delegates.

His campaign announced a 17-member New York leadership team Wednesday night, along with the support of 33 local GOP chairs. Susan McNeil, a Trump supporters and regional Republican Party chair for the area surrounding Albany, said she’s gotten a steady stream of calls from people looking to volunteer for the businessman’s campaign.

“I haven’t had as many calls in an election as for this one. People say they want to do anything for the Trump campaign,” said Ms. McNeil, who attended the rally.

The Monmouth University poll found that Mr. Trump’s strongest support was in New York City and Long Island, with 58% support.

He’s bringing up major issues, like transparency and money in politics and how many illegal immigrants have been deported and return again,” said Helen Qiu, an independent voter and native of China who traveled 90 minutes by train with her four-year-old son to the rally
“I’m against these establishment people,” said George Ruzzier, an 81-year-old independent from Bethpage, who planned to vote for Mr. Trump. “He’s the only one who can beat Hillary.”"

Added: Per Wisconsin GOP Primary ABC News Exit Poll 4/5/16: 70% of Wisconsin Republican Primary voters favor Trump proposal to temporarily ban non-US Muslims from entering the US: (Ed. note: Please excuse tiny type here. Google dislikes free speech)

"Who turned out in Tuesday's Wisconsin primary and what motivated their votes? Here are some of our observations of exit poll results from Republicans voting in the primary tonight....

scroll to subhead: "Muslim ban"
"As has been the case throughout the GOP primaries this year, there’s broad support in these preliminary Wisconsin results (seven in 10) for Trump’s proposal to ban non-U.S. Muslims from entering the country. Trump’s won 47 percent of these voters in previous states, vs. Cruz’s 28 percent, but Cruz was much closer to Trump among these voters in some recent contests, notably in North Carolina and Missouri."... 


Comment: The word "temporary" isn't used in above article to accurately describe the proposal. It's not clear how the question was phrased to voters. It can be presented two ways. For example, below, the word "temporarily" is included in first sentence of 4/4/16 Rasmussen article on the proposal but is omitted in Rasmussen headline:
4/4/16, "GOP Voters Still Support Trump’s Muslim Ban," Rasmussen

"Support remains high and unchanged among Republicans for GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s controversial proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States..

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of Likely Republican Voters favor a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Just 23% are opposed, while 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This is unchanged from early December when Trump first made the proposal following the terrorist massacre in San Bernardino, California."...
