On Tuesday people will head to the polls in the state of Wisconsin for the state-wide primary in both the Democratic and Republican parties. Although many pundits may not have looked at Wisconsin long ago as a crucial turning point of the primary process, tonight’s primary contests are shaping up to be defining moments for several campaigns.
In the Republican race, Donald Trump‘s lead over Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich is sizable, with many people looking at Wisconsin as the last real opportunity to steal the state’s 42 delegates. Trump currently sits on 737 delegates, compared to Cruz’s 475 and Kasich’s 143. After scoring the endorsement of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker last week, Cruz continues to leads in the state-wide polls with a brief lead over Trump according to the latest data from Real Clear Politics. 42 delegates are up for grabs tonight.
As for the Democrats, the margin is slim heading into Tuesday’s contests, with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders narrowly leading over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. 86 pledged delegates and 10 superdelegates are at stake for Wisconsin tonight, though Clinton maintains a wide margin in the overall count. Her 1,712 delegates bests the 1,011 of Sanders heading into Tuesday.
