Indiana holds its presidential primary on Tuesday, and political junkies can get a live stream of election results as they roll in on the evening of May 3, to find out if Donald Trump can drive one more nail into the coffin of the “Stop Trump” movement on the Republican side.
And for the Democrats, fans of underdog challenger Bernie Sanders will want to keep a close eye on the Indiana primary results to see if their candidate can start mounting what looks to be an increasingly improbable comeback as he chases frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who continues to hold a seemingly insurmountable lead, despite a seemingly close race in Indiana.
Scroll down this page for several options to stream Indian primary results live.

Trump currently has 957 pledged delegates locked up, according to a count by the political data site The Green Papers. With a win in Indiana, he automatically collects 57 more, while his opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich would get none, because Indiana is a “winner take all” state for Republicans.
With a 15-point lead in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist College poll — and an 8.3 point lead in the overall FiveThirtyEight.com weighted polling average — Trump appears destined to claim that victory in Indiana, a victory that would give him 1,014 delegates, just 223 short of the 1,237 needed to clinch the nomination.
That means Trump must capture 44 percent of the remaining 502 pledged delegates available. But by winning the three remaining winner-take-all states — Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota — Trump would shave 107 delegates off the required 223 total.
In the other states still to vote, Donald Trump would then need to capture just 29 percent of the proportionally allocated delegates. In other words, a win in Indiana would all but squash the hopes of the “Stop Trump” movement.
For the Democrats, Bernie Sanders trailed Hillary Clinton by just four points in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist College poll. But the Democrats allocate all pledged delegates proportionally, so with a deficit of 295 to Clinton, Sanders will need much more than a close victory in the Indiana Primary to have any hope of staging a comeback against Clinton. In fact, he would need to win Indiana by a landslide.
Watch Bernie Sanders on the CBS Sunday interview program Face The Nation on May 1 in the video below, explaining how he plans to engineer a victory anyway, by persuading non-pledged superdelegates to vote for him rather than for Hillary Clinton — even though Clinton currently has 498 superdelegates who say they will vote for her, to just 41 for Bernie Sanders.
