Recently, Trump rallys have often broken out in riots. Protesters are escorted out at almost every rally. Trump was even attacked at one rally.

The most recent states participating in the Republican and Democratic primaries consisted of: North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, and Florida.

Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton won big, winning the votes of all the states. Lagging far behind her, Democrat candidate, Bernie Sanders, decreased the chances for a victory.

Junior Anais Cabello said “I find it interesting that the Democrats only have two candidates, Clinton and Sanders.”

According to CNN, Sanders would need to win about 72% of the remaining delegates in order to become the Democratic nominee.

On the other hand, the Republican candidates came out with surprising results. Frontrunner Donald Trump won big, winning the states of North Carolina, Illinois, and Florida.

Ohio governor, John Kasich, won his home state of Ohio, raising the chances of a historic GOP competition.

Junior Sarah Sotropa said, “I think Kasich should not keep going because the chances of him winning are very low.”

Trump’s win in Florida was Florida governor and Republican candidate, Marco Rubio’s, loss. This loss resulted in Rubio dropping out of the presidential race altogether.

Cabello said, “It would be cool if Kasich won because he is our governor, but judging from the polls, it would be a big surprise if he did win.”

Kasich’s win in Ohio makes it more difficult for Trump to reach the 1237 delegates needed to become the Republican nominee. However, Kasich is still behind Texas governor, Ted Cruz.

Cruz and Trump are currently in a tight battle in the state of Missouri. At the same time, Clinton is hoping for a victory in Missouri against Sanders.

According to CNN, Trump needs to win about 60% of the remaining delegates available in the GOP race in order to become the Republican nominee.
