The New York Primary election 2016 live stream online and televised results will be arriving as of Tuesday evening, with the Empire State the focus of the latest voting. There’s a good number of delegates up for both the Republican and Democratic winner, which could help a candidate gain a more sizable lead. It could also potentially thin out their field of opponents, should any decide to drop out of their campaign efforts. As of right now, the Democrats are neck-and-neck, while the Republican frontrunner appears quite clear in his home state but could certainly use a big win. Tuesday’s GOP and Democratic primary live streaming results and TV coverage comes from various networks throughout the day.
On April 19, CNN reported that tonight’s New York primary results will make a big difference in terms of who is nominated in the battle for the Presidential election this year. It marks the first time in decades where NY has such significance in the election, with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump being predicted to emerge victorious. However, Trump could use a “sweeping win” to help clinch the GOP nomination. Ted Cruz could possibly take away a good number of delegates in the state and make things difficult though. Trump currently has 756 delegates, Cruz 559 and Kasich 144, with 1,237 needed to win the GOP nomination.
On Tuesday night, Clinton will also hope for a big win, because her last remaining opponent, Bernie Sanders, continues to talk up just how great his recent momentum has been. Sanders has enjoyed a nice wing streak out west, but a big victory from the former Sec. of State could certainly help her halt that momentum talk. As it stands right now, she has 1,758 delegates and is 625 delegates short of grabbing the Democratic nomination. Sanders has 1,076 delegates. A total of 2,383 is what’s needed to win the nomination for the Democrats.
For the Democratic side, a total of 247 delegates is up for grabs in tonight’s primary, while the Republicans will be vying for 95 delegates. The last poll is expected to close at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, so results should be forthcoming through that hour on various networks. By Wednesday morning the political picture might be a bit clearer as to which two candidates will be battling it out for the respective sides in the 2016 election for President of the United States.
Viewers in the United States can keep up to date with CNN which will have the “America’s Choice 2016: NY Primary” show as of 2 p.m. Eastern Time that runs two hours. They’ll resume coverage of results as of 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday night with continuing coverage through the night. Live streaming online feeds can be seen by cable and satellite viewers at the CNNgo website or mobile apps, where available. There’s also live audio simulcast coverage on the CNN Sirius XM Satellite Radio channel
