The poll found that 22 percent may change their mind before the April 19 contest, while 6 percent are still undecided.

“Donald Trump is big in his home state,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Assistant Director Maurice Carroll.

Quinnipiac found the numbers basically unchanged since their last New York poll on March 31, when Trump had 56 percent, Cruz 20 percent and Kasich 19 percent.

Another survey released late Monday found Trump with an even bigger lead.

The NY1/Baruch College poll showed Trump with 60 percent — a 43-point edge over Kasich’s 17 percent and Cruz’s 14 percent.

New York awards 95 delegates in next week’s primary.

Trump already has 755 delegates, putting him ahead of Cruz’s 545 and Kasich’s 143. He needs 1,237 to lock down the GOP presidential nomination and avoid a contested convention in July.

The Quinnipiac poll was of 550 likely Republican primary voters in New York via cell and landline telephone interviews from April 6 to 11. It has a 4.2 percent margin of error.
