Viewers will be able to watch Donald Trump’s rallies in Terre Haute and Fort Wayne, Indiana, live online and see if the GOP front-runner can turn the excitement of his supporters into a big win on Tuesday.
After scoring a huge victory in the New York primary and following it up by sweeping the eastern seaboard states that voted last Tuesday, Trump is looking for what would be a resounding victory in the winner-take-all state of Indiana. A victory there would put Trump on pace to reach the 1,237 delegate threshold that would allow him to avoid a contested convention.
Viewers who want to watch Donald Trump’s rally from Terre Haute live online can follow all the action in the embedded video below. The rally is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
Full streaming video of the Fort Wayne rally can be seen below. It will start at 4 p.m.
Viewers who watch Donald Trump’s May 1 rallies live online will see what is one of the most pivotal moments in his campaign. In recent visits around the state, Trump has said that if he can win in the Hoosier State, the nomination is “over.”
His opponents are playing up its importance, too. The “Never Trump” movement has focused on Indiana as one of the most important chances to halt his momentum and keep Trump from winning the nomination outright. His opponents, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich, have been amassing delegates who are loyal to them and would abandon Trump on a second ballot at this summer’s Republican National Convention.
The opponents are even taking the unprecedented step of working together in Indiana, issuing a joint announcement that their campaigns would be coordinating to stop Donald Trump.
“Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. Not only would Trump get blown out by Clinton or Sanders, but having him as our nominee would set the party back a generation,” the statement read. “To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.”
There are signs that the tactics could be working. A recent poll by the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics found that Trump is trailing Ted Cruz by 16 points, with Cruz winning 45 percent to 29 percent. A full 13 percent of voters are still undecided, a sign that Trump could still make up ground.
“This is good news for Cruz, but the volatility of the electorate means all campaigns should view these results cautiously,” pollster Andrew Downs said in a statement.
Other signs look more positive for Trump. Real Clear Politics shows that the GOP frontrunner still has an average lead of 2.3 percent in Indiana among all polls. And a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist poll has him up a whopping 15 points.
