US election 2016: Trump and Clinton vie for north-east

United States, April 26: Voters in five north-eastern US states will cast ballots in a series of primaries that could cement the leads of presidential front-runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Democrat Mrs Clinton and Republican Mr Trump hold sizeable leads in all five contests, according to recent polling.

Mr Trump’s rivals have already shifted focus away from the north-east.Republicans Ted Cruz and John Kasich are pooling resources, courting voters in Indiana, Oregon or New Mexico.

This pact of allegiance between the two has been attacked by Mr Trump, a New York businessman, as a sign of weakness and desperation. BBC
