With New York firmly in the rearview mirror, party frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are looking to continue their dominance in the next five states holding primaries today: Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware.
While Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is hoping to earn delegates in these states and keep the fight alive until, as he has said, the California primary, his battle is an uphill one. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton holds a lead in all five states voting today according to the latest data from Real Clear Politics, and her overall delegate lead — 1,944 to Sanders’ 1,192 — is likely going to be widened by the end of today.
On the GOP side, real estate mogul Donald Trump is quickly running away with the first-ballot nomination, inching closer to the necessary 1,237 delegates he needs. At 845, he leads Texas Senator Ted Cruz (559) and Ohio Governor John Kasich (148) by a long shot, and the five state voting Tuesday are favorable to him as well.
