Latest polls for 2016 presidential election: Donald Trump heading to get the nomination after Tuesday primaries
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both notched up huge wins yesterday in five states that held primaries. Both have made great strides towards achieving the nomination of Republican and Democratic parties.
While Donald Trump won primaries in as many as four states, Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primaries in all five states. Donald Trump, despite missing in one state, Ohio, is feeling excited as his closest competitor Ted Cruz failed to win a single primary, as he gave real very tough fight to Donald Trump.
The going seems to be difficult for both Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz, the main challengers of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump respectively. Both of them failed to win a single primary out of the five that went to polls.
Both were expecting to win Missouri primary and came very close to doing it. Nonetheless the two fell marginally short of and so lost with very narrow margins. According to election results from the Missouri Secretary of States’ webpage, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will win Missouri’s primary election after a close race. Clinton won the Democratic nomination with 49.611 percent of the vote compared to Bernie Sanders’ 49.366 percent. Sanders lost to Clinton by just over 1,500 votes. Republican nominee Donald Trump won with 40.831 percent of the vote compared to Ted Cruz’s 40.646 percent, winning by just over 1,700 votes.
So this means that it was the best performing Tuesday of Hillary Clinton as she won in all five states in the March 15 primary including Missouri, North Carolina, Illinois, Florida and Ohio.
On the other hand Republican front runner Donald Trump managed to win in as many as four states; Missouri, Florida, Illinois and North Carolina. John Kasich won his home state of Ohio by 47 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 36 percent. It is yet to be seen if the two will go for recount as the difference of the loss is marginal.
