Washington – Republican fans are going to vote in as many as four states in mostly white, working class belt. This area also has a large concentration of Bible Belt Evangelicals and two candidates who are going to fight it out in those areas are Republican front runner Donald Trump and his main competitor Texas senator Ted Cruz.
Voting has already begun and hundreds of thousands of Republicans are going to vote to determine as to who is going to be their presidential candidate in November election for the White House.
There are reasons to believe that as far as Republicans are concerned, the main fight will be between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio, despite his belligerent rhetoric may not be able to get much vote traction in these states. In the four states where Republicans are going to fight including Caucuses in Kansas, Kentucky and Maine, and a primary in Louisiana, Rubio or Kasich donâ€™t have much of appeal.
In the meantime Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are going to fight it out in caucus in Nebraska and Kansas besides primary in Louisiana.
Republican front runner Donald Trump, if gets convincing victory, may force his opponents to give in and accept him as their candidate. But it is unlikely to happen as Republican establishment is totally against him. A crucial component of Trump’s strength has been his ability to expand the Republican electorate — shattering turnout records in states like Virginia and bringing into the fold “Reagan Democrats” in northern states. But those contests were open. To participate, registered voters don’t have to be registered members of the GOP — they could just walk in on election day. Republicans have held four contests that were closed: Iowa, Nevada, Oklahoma and Alaska. And Cruz, not Trump, won three of the four.
When it comes to Democrats, things are as exciting as ever. People want to see if Hillary can knock out Sanders, or the Vermont senator continues to pick victories here too.
