The results are in! Mar. 15 may be the single most decisive day of the 2016 election season so far. Primaries in Ohio and Florida mean life or death for John Kasich and Marco Rubio, while Donald Trump and Ted Cruz battle for the lead. See the results, here!
Mar. 15 is a huge day for the 2016 election. With hundreds of delegates up for grabs, and two home-state primaries, today change the course of the race for the Republicans. In one fell swoop, Donald Trump, 69, could become the official nominee, John Kasich, 63, and Marco Rubio, 45, could be forced to drop out, and Ted Cruz, 45, could catch up or fall further behind. See the results as they come in, here.
The five Mar. 15 primaries could change everything for the 2016 race for president. While Super Tuesday has 11 states up for grabs, today got the nickname Super Tuesday II because though it only has 5 states, it could have a major impact. Two states – Ohio and Florida – have a winner-takes-all policy for GOP delegates, and those also happen to be the home states of John and Marco.
There’s a kind of unspoken rule that candidates should drop out of they don’t win in their home states. John was slightly leading Donald in Ohio before the big day, but Marco appeared to be trailing by a large margin. If neither of them beat Donald, and he beats out Ted Cruz in the other three states, John and Marco might drop out of the race and Donald might become the official GOP nominee.
