On the Republican side, Donald Trump appears set to put away his rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich once and for all. Polls show Trump winning by large margins in all five states going to the polls Tuesday — Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Delaware.
With Trump needing to win 391 of the 700 Republican delegates remaining, a five-state sweep with large margins of victory could put an effective end to the so-called “Stop Trump Movement” that has been counting on some combination of Cruz and Kasich to block Trump’s march to the 1,237 delegate total needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination.
But the Republican procedures for allocating delegates can be both more simple and more complicated than in the Democratic party. On the simple side, Republicans allow “winner take all” primaries, but on Tuesday, only Delaware will award all of its delegates, 16 in this case, to the top vote-getter statewide.
Things get especially complicated in Pennsylvania, where all but 17 of the state’s 71 delegates are elected directly without any commitment to a specific candidate. The other 54 remain free to vote for anyone at the Republican National Convention in July — even if Donald Trump wins the double-digit victory shown in every Pennsylvania poll taken in April.
The other three states allocate delegates based on both statewide results and results from each congressional district. But there are 172 delegates at stake for the three Republican candidates on Tuesday, and according to calculations by the election-predicting site FiveThirtyEight, Trump must win 97 to remain “on target” for a first-ballot nomination.
By winning all five primaries, as polls say that he should, Trump will automatically secure 73 of those delegates, meaning he would need to pick up just 14 more from the five states to stay on track for 1,237.
In the Democratic race, Bernie Sanders trails in all five states, including by double-digits in the two most delegate-rich states, Pennsylvania and Maryland, that go to the polls Tuesday. He must find a way to turn all five of those polling deficits into big victories to retain any hope of winning the Democratic nomination.
In perhaps a sign of desperation, Sanders surrogate Rosario Dawson brought up the name of Monica Lewinsky in a campaign rally speech on Saturday. Watch Sanders’ response when asked about Dawson’s comments, in the video below.
There are several ways to get a live stream of the April 26 Super Tuesday Republican and Democratic Primary results from the five-state election, which should start becoming clear once polls close in all five voting states at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 5 p.m. Pacific.
