According to the latest polls, the billionaire Donald trump increases lead over their closest pursuers – the senators of Cuban origin Ted Cruz and Mark Rubio. The trump rating is 49%, while a rating of cruise – 16%, and Rubio – 15%.
The only state where trump is in second place – native to the Cruz of Texas. But the hopes of that candidate that will support the entire South, were not fulfilled and other southern States went for trump, and caught him, and Ohio, where I came from Rubio.
In the next two weeks, the Republican primaries will be held in 13 States, and «super Tuesday» may give the trump campaign momentum for the nomination. Win 1 of March will determine the fate of the Republican nomination.
The same can be said about the Democratic party, where fight only two candidates – Hillary Clinton and the Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders. Polls show that former Secretary of state has the advantage – it is supported by 55%, while her opponent – only 39%.
