Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton also leads her primary opponent, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, by double-digits in both states, according to the polls released on Sunday by a news agency.

The New York primaries are scheduled for April 10 and Pennsylvania on April 26.The New York poll showed Trump poised to cross the 50 percent statewide threshold needed to capture all of New York's statewide Republican delegates. Trump would need to win a majority of votes in all of the state's 27 congressional districts to clinch New York's full 95-delegate slate.

Trump has 54 percent of support to fellow Republican hopefuls Ohio Governor John Kasich's 22 percent and Texas Senator Ted Cruz's 15 percent, according to the survey of likely New York Republican primary voters.

After suffering through a string of recent defeats, Clinton appears poised to recapture her momentum in New York and Pennsylvania where she leads Sanders by 16 and 11 percentage points, respectively.
