The fate of Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls may be sealed in the next twenty four hours. A large number of delegates in 14 states will be decided today and if a candidate is able to garner most of the delegates on offer by winning primaries in these states, he or she is more than expected to bag the nomination.

The states where primaries and caucuses are to be led today include Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Wyoming and American Samoa.

The voting is set to begin early in the morning and will continue till late in the evening. Results will start trickling early but things will become clear only much later in the day.

When it comes to the beginning of the voting, Virginians will begin voting very early in the day. To be true, they can start voting at 6 a.m., while Democrats and Republicans in Colorado won’t start caucusing until 9 p.m. Eastern time. The Associated Press and television networks may project winners as soon as the polls close in each state, many as early as 8 p.m.

There are two candidates who are expected to win most states, and consequently most delegates from the two political parties. While former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is favored in opinion polls to win most of the Democratic contests, real estate mogul Donald Trump is expected to win in most Republican primary polls.

Despite their huge lead, both Trump and Clinton will be tested in a few states. Texas with largest Republican haul of 155 delegates is a power center of Ted Cruz. A huge win will give him a good haul. The same is true about Bernie Sanders. He is expected to do well in a few smaller states. A lot will depend on presidential hopefuls. If both Trump and Clinton win by a huge margin, they can be assured of nomination from their respective teams.
