Poll shows Romney leading among New York GOP

Mitt Romney's race to the Republican nomination will likely ease decisively through New York State.

That's according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University which shows Romney with a huge lead among those expected to vote in New York's April 24th GOP Primary. Romney has the support of 54 percent of expected voters compared to Rick Santorum's 21 percent.

The November election may be a drastically different story.

If the general election were held now, the poll numbers show President Obama thrashing Romney by 21 points in New York, a state which traditionally supports the Democratic candidate in Presidential races.
