Billionaire Donald Trump and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton won sweeping victories in the New York primary Tuesday, bolstering their bids to secure the Republican and Democratic nominations for the White House.CNN predicted Trump would take at least 89 of the 95 Republican party delegates up for grabs in New York.The three main candidates also claimed New York as home: Trump, who has never lived anywhere else; Clinton, who was twice elected the state's U.S. senator; and Sanders, who was raised in Brooklyn.Clinton now leads with 1,930 delegates compared to 1,223 for Sanders, according to a CNN tally -- putting her even more firmly on course to clinch the 2,383 needed to secure the party's presidential nomination.Only New York's 5.8 million Democrats and 2.7 million Republicans who registered by last October -- four months before the nation's first caucus election in Iowa -- were eligible to vote.
