Super Tuesday for Dummies
March 15 and another potentiality historic 'Super Tuesday' as Florida, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, and Missouri go to the polls today.
On the Republican side four states have Trump predicted to win, the exception being Ohio which slightly favors it's Governor John Kasich.
On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton also has four of the five states in recent polling figures, the exception is Missouri where Bernie Sanders is slightly favored.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the top runners in their parties, so this could be a big indicator as to where they will be in the race for the presidency.
If Trump and Clinton get their parties nominations, this will be an historic election putting either the first non political president, or the first women president in the White House.
Just to recap how the primary process works, Democrats will send 4,763 delegates to their convention, with 2,382 needed for nomination. Republicans will send 2,472 delegates to their national convention. To win the nomination, a candidate must get the support of 1,236 delegates.
The race to the presidential nomination ends June 14 in Washington, D.C. Democratic and Republican voters will either caucus or go to the polls to select delegates to their national conventions during the next four months.
Those delegates will meet in July, either in Cleveland (Republicans) or Philadelphia (Democrats) to select their parties' presidential and vice-presidential nominees and to adopt a platform of principles.
If you are a registered party member, I strongly encourage you to vote in your states primary.
