Trump has 60 percent support in the Empire State, according to a NY1/Baruch College survey released late Monday.

“Trump is just killing it,” said Baruch College pollster Mickey Blum. "This could really be his road to getting enough to win it outright before he ever gets to that [Republican National] Convention.”

New York awards 95 delegates in next week's primary, making it a major prize for the remaining GOP White House hopefuls.

Fourteen delegates are allocated to the statewide winner, while the remaining 81 are divided up by winner of congressional districts, three per district.

Trump already leads the race with 743 delegates, to Cruz’s 545 and Kasich’s 141. Trump needs 1,237 delegates to clinch the nomination and avoid a contested convention.

The poll has a 5.8 percent margin of error.
