Update: projects Ted Cruz will win the Idaho GOP primary. Donald Trump will come in second place.
Update: Bernie Sanders wins Michigan. In a statement he said, “”I am grateful to the people of Michigan for defying the pundits and pollsters and giving us their support. This is a critically important night. We came from 30 points down in Michigan and we’re seeing the same kind of come-from-behind momentum all across America.”
“Not only is Michigan the gateway to the rest of the industrial Midwest, the results there show that we are a national campaign. We already have won in the Midwest, New England and the Great Plains and as more people get to know more about who we are and what our views are we’re going to do very well.”
If latest reports are to be believed, Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton has won the Mississippi Democratic primary.
It is Super Tuesday 2 as four states are going to decide their Republican and Democratic nominee for the presidential elections. Despite his huge lead over his challengers in the polls, Republican front runner Donald Trump faces a test of resilience. Four important states are going to polls and this includes the important Michigan battleground.
In todayâ€™s caucuses and primaries that will have more than 160 delegates on offer, Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton would like to win in the most important state like Michigan to keep her lead intact.
There are signs that Hillary Clinton is feeling the heat as Vermont Senator won three weekend caucuses making the fight look like real. Another few big wins will make him look more threatening and give indication that he was a good bet.
In the meantime GOP fans in this important region are voting on what is being dubbed Super Tuesday 2 in primaries in Michigan, Idaho and Mississippi and in caucuses in Hawaii with 150 delegates up for grabs. Democrats hold contests in Michigan and Mississippi, with 166 delegates at stake. Clinton holds an overall lead of around 200 pledged delegates over Sanders, whose spirited campaign has enlivened grass-roots Democrats and tugged her to the left on some key issues.
It must be kept in mind that Michigan is the biggest prize on Tuesday in both races. The state will offer clues about the appeal of the leading candidates among blue-collar voters in the industrial Midwest and may hold omens for significant looming primaries in states like Ohio and Illinois.
