Super Tuesday will henceforth be known as National Trump Day!
Because that is what is going to happen on Tuesday if both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are still in the race. Donald Trump will do no less than dominate.
There are eleven major states up for grabs and Donald Trump is leading in eight of them. He is currently looking to win Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Virginia.
Ted Cruz, meanwhile is doing the second best and will win Texas, which is worth the most out of Tuesday’s states, and he will most likely also pick up Arkansas.
Meanwhile, Marco Rubio is enjoying a very slim lead in Minnesota… That’s it.
Also, worth noting is that Carson and Kasich are not leading in a single state.

Ted Cruz does have a shot – if everything goes his way – of winning Texas, Arkansas, Alaska, and Oklahoma. If he wins those 4 that would give Cruz 333 delegates in the race. Add that to Ted Cruz’s existing delegates of 17 and he would have 350.
If that is the case and that is a big if, then Trump will have won Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Virginia. Those states would award Donald Trump 242 delegates. Add that to his current 82 and Trump would have 324.
If that happens, we will have a legitimate two-person race between two very close and ideologically minded candidates.
Marco Rubio could theoretically win Virginia, Massachusetts, and Minnesota which would give him 129. If you add that to his 16 he still comes in way short at 145. However, if he does strip a few states from Trump then we could still have all 3 in a somewhat tight race.
Trump is also leading in Florida, Rubio’s home state, as well as Ohio. So even if Super Tuesday goes Cruz’s way, he isn’t looking good and anything less and trump will ride off in the sunset to the general election.
Tuesday will be an exciting day. Every candidate somehow feels like the underdog, even Trump, and who doesn’t love an underdog story.
