Even before the Wisconsin Democratic primary, both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were fighting for votes in New York. The Empire State is pivotal in the nomination process with its 291 delegates at stake in the April 19 primary.

Both candidates have strong ties to New York. Sanders was born in Brooklyn while Clinton served as a state senator earlier in her career.

After posturing by both campaigns, Clinton and Sanders finally agreed to their next debate with Brooklyn serving as the location. The debate will be hosted by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on April 14 just a few days before the primary.

The early polls have been favorable for Clinton. According to RealClear Politics, she has an average lead of 11 percentage points over Sanders in the two most recent polls. Sanders faced an even larger margin in earlier New York polls where some polling data showed Clinton with over twice the amount of support as Sanders.

Given the delegates are divided proportionally to results, a large victory for Clinton would be devastating to Sanders comeback attempt given the amount of delegates up for grabs in New York.

Here’s a look at the latest New York Democratic polls.

What’s your information: to the email situation: it will be resolved probably in the next two months no charges ! All the major legal experts around the country are saying this ! Where and how did you get that she’s involved with the Panama papers you better check your facts and get them straight before you start typing s$&t and comments!
As far as the debate goes Bernie’s going to put be put on the hot seat for all his plans for free revolution stuff that He can’t possibly put through!
Has no real plans to make any of his plans happen ! He’s going to be on the hot seat for his views on gun control and being against the Sandyhook parents suing the gun manufacturers!
He puts out populists ideas that have no way in reality of coming to reality!
Bernie Sanders is also woefully ignorant on foreign-policy he couldn’t dissect what’s really going on either in the Middle East or the far east in anyway near close to what Hillary can! And even though he’s Jewish he is woefully weak on support for Israel ! You can’t be a blundering uninfomed foreign-policy maker specially right now!
Sanders has basically been given a free pass as far as being vetted and all these free revolution programs how is going to pay for it how is going to put it through Congress ! Also his lack of support by major Democrat’s in Democratic Party and down ticket people that need fundraising and support: those are all things that Hillary has and has done! Hillary is going to demolish Bernie in New York !
After the New York primary all the momentum is going to shift towards Hillary in a string of huge wins: Connecticut Maryland New Jersey Road Island & Pennsylvania
Real primaries in real democratic states not concocted caucuses in states that are going to be a Republican anyway where Bernie seems to win!

By the way all these national polls pitting Hilliery & Sanders against republican candidates is just ridiculous at this point !
The main thing is the Democrats needing to get out and vote not only for President but for all the down tickets: take over the Senate and the Congress and the Presidency stopping this Republican super obstruction so we can really get things done put this country back on top !
