In a blow to Sanders' campaign, Clinton takes New York

Hillary Clinton has won the New York primary. 

It's a vital win for the former secretary of state and one that puts a big dent in her rival's campaign. 

With a New York win under her belt, Clinton will get a chunk of the state's 291 delegates. That chunk will be enough for her to maintain a strong lead over Bernie Sanders' total pledged delegates.

Still, Sanders is continuing to inch closer to Clinton in national polls, trailing by an average of 1.4 points. 

And the candidates aren't done with New England just yet. Primaries for Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island will all be held next Tuesday.
