Voters go the polls in four states today. Democrats and Republicans will vie for delegates in Michigan and Mississippi while just Republicans are holding caucuses in Hawaii and Idaho. Up for grabs for the Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are 166 delegates and 150 for the remaining four Republicans.
Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton look to build on their leads in the presidential nominating races when four states vote on Tuesday, and polls show both front-runners comfortably ahead in the biggest prize of Michigan.
Trump hopes to regain his momentum after suffering a week of blistering attacks from the party’s establishment and splitting four contests on Saturday with rival Ted Cruz, who positioned himself as the prime alternative to the brash billionaire in the race for the party’s nomination for the Nov. 8 election.
Most opinion polls show Trump hanging on to a solid double-digit lead in Michigan over Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas, and Ohio Governor John Kasich.
The establishment favorite, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, lags behind and is seen needing a breakthrough win in his home state next week to keep his campaign alive.
It’s going to be a late night since the results for Hawaii won’t be in until after 1 AM ET.
