Make or break day in New York state

So today is make or break day for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Each are in New York for the second largest number of delegates up for grabs [after California who are later on].
Clinton, Trump and Bernie Sanders claim New York state as their home state. But Clinton was only a senator there. Sanders was born in Brooklyn but left before 20 to go to the university of Chicago. He came back for a few years before moving to Vermont.
Already out of the gate in Buffalo, Trump make a bit of a blunder by saying: “Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.” You can see it here.
In another faux pas, Sanders, when interviewed in New York a week or so ago, could not give an accurate number of people who died on 9/11 [in New York] – at one point saying 10,000 people. In fact an estimated 3,000 died and many died [but not 7,000] after because of ailments related to the attacks [such as first responders with breathing issues, etc.]. That is a big difference.
In any case, a major win by Clinton and Trump can sink the other campaigns.
