Tonight’s Democratic and GOP live steam primary results are the most important yet as candidates from both sides are fighting for a shot at the 2016 Presidency. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could do some serious damage if they run the table this evening, while all the other contestants (outside of Ted Cruz) are in desperate need of some wins tonight or it could be all but over. GOP and Democratic live stream coverage will begin just after 7:00 p.m. ET and run throughout the night until the winners are determined.
According to a NJ.com report on March 15, early poll results indicate that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are poised to have a big evening. Quinnipiac University’s polls had Trump leading Rubio in Florida, 46 percent to 22 percent, and tied with Kasich in Ohio at 38 percent apiece according to early results. If Trump wins both Ohio and Florida it will be all but over for the rest of the Republican candidates. While Florida and Ohio are the top two states tonight in terms of delegates, they aren’t the only states voting.
Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina will also be up for grabs along with Florida and Ohio in tonight’s big primary battle. However, the difference is Ohio and Florida are “winner take all” states in terms of delegates, that’s why they are so important. Heading into tonight, Donald Trump leads the GOP party with 469 delegates, followed by Ted Cruz with 370. Marco Rubio is at 163 and needs to win his home state of Florida to have a realistic shot at the nomination. John Kasich is in fourth place with 63 delegates and has said if he loses Ohio, his home state, he will leave the race. Hillary Clinton leads the Democratic side with 1,235 delegates over Bernie Sanders who has 580.
Tonight’s results can be seen live on several channels nationally including FOX Business, CNN, FOX News and various other news outlets.
