With the second big Tuesday in the race for the White House coming up, some candidates will need to rouse the affection of voters in order to stay in the race. With businessman Donald Trump gaining speed at every primary or caucus, the rest of the GOP field is clinging to the anti-Trump card. Trump has gained 458 delegates; Texas Senator Ted Cruz follows behind with 359 delegates Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich trail behind with 151 and 54 delegates, respectively. Tuesday, March 15th will see critical states like Florida and Ohio heading to the polls, and the results could bring an even smaller GOP field, if Rubio and Kasich do not see the results they want in their home states. On the Democratic side, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders have been going head to head over who has the support of African Americans and Hispanics and previous voting records. Clinton leads the race with 1,223 of the 2,383 delegates needed to win the nomination; a large lead over Sanders’ 574. With five states heading to the polls on Tuesday, including two winner take all states for the Republican side, the race for the nomination could come to a head.
