Update: Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has finally suspended his campaign after massive loss in his home state of Florida to Donald Trump. In his remarks, Rubio referenced the anger fueling Trump’s campaign without explicitly naming the front-runner.

While talking about the decision to suspend his campaign Rubio said, “While this may not have been the year for a hopeful and optimistic message, I still main hopeful and optimistic about America,” he said. He urged voters, “Do not give into the fear, do not give into the frustration. We can disagree about public policy… but we are a hopeful people, and we have every right to be hopeful.”

Update: Ohio Gov. John Kasich has won the primary in his home state. After winning the state despite apprehensions he went on to thank his supporters in Berea, Ohio. “I will not take the low road to the highest office in the land,” he said. “I think we can rally the people in Washington because I’m going to remind them that before we’re Republicans and Democrats, we’re Americans.”

Another Tuesday and another day of hectic polling. The fight today is more crucial compared to the other two Tuesdays. At least two Republican presidential hopefuls are expected to leave the race for nomination if they do real badly tonight.

Nonetheless, worse seem to be the condition of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. All the polls suggest he is losing to Donald Trump by a huge margin. While one poll suggests that Rubio is behind Trump by more than 20 points, another poll suggests that the gap is a bit smaller. Nonetheless he is staring at a sure defeat. To be true, one survey shows him trailing behind both Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.John Kasich

Nonetheless the affable Ohio Gov. Kasich is better off compared to Marco Rubio as far as Super Tuesday III is concerned. Despite sitting fourth in virtually every national poll, Ohio Governor John Kasich is shaping up as the man to potentially stop, or at least slow, Donald Trump’s momentum as he surges towards becoming the Republican nominee for the United States presidency.

Five major states are holding primaries today and polling is already underway in Ohio, Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri. All up, 367 delegates are up for grabs with Florida and Ohio holding the big prizes of 99 delegates and 66 delegates, respectively – which will be awarded on a winner-takes-all basis. Elsewhere, North Carolina’s delegates will be doled out proportionally, while Illinois and Missouri award their delegates at the congressional-district level. The territory of the Northern Mariana islands, near Guam in the Pacific Ocean, will also award nine delegates in caucuses.
