PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – Registered Republicans in Pleasantville can take to the polls Tuesday to vote in the party's New York primary. With 95 delegates up for grabs, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney can inch closer to locking up the Republican nomination with a victory.
Romney’s position as the clear frontrunner has not stopped Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul from continuing their campaigns. Both will appear on Tuesday’s ballot along with Rick Santorum, who suspended his campaign on April 10.
For many, Romney’s chances of winning Tuesday are not a question of "if" but "how much?" The latest Quinnipiac poll shows Romney leading in New York by 54 percent. Santorum is a distant second with 21 percent.
Thus far in Pleasantville, contributions to Romney have been roughly half those to President Barack Obama. Since January 2011, Romney has received $5,775 compared to the $10,587 donated to the President, according to OpenSecrets.org.
