Clinton and Trump near the promised land

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump entered Super Tuesday and its dozen contests as their parties’ front-runners. Now that the dust has settled, has that changed?

Not at all.

The path to stop Trump? It’s a narrow one

Donald Trump waves as he steps on stage to speak at

The Republican establishment is not ready to embrace him. His top challengers, by all appearances, remain determined to stop him and are getting increasingly personal and aggressive in their tactics.

There’s the fact that instead of having just one determined rival, he still has at least two in Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, to say nothing of John Kasich and Ben Carson, who continue to pick up votes, making it possible for the New York billionaire to win contests decisively with his existing base of support. And those Trump supporters, if we’ve learned anything in this campaign, aren’t going anywhere, no matter what.

Hillary Clinton addresses supporters at her Super Tuesday

Clinton entered the 2016 presidential race as a prohibitive front-runner to become the Democratic nominee. Then, unexpectedly, Bernie Sanders emerged as not only as viable alternative but a threat to win many of the early states — a belief he validated by losing Iowa by the narrowest of margins, then taking New Hampshire in a landslide. But even before the first votes were cast, it was long believed, no matter what, that the March 1 slate of contests, mostly in the South with large African-American electorates, would shore up Clinton’s candidacy and stem whatever momentum Sanders may have acquired.

The math for Sanders has always been unkind. Super Tuesday made it worse.

Is there anything Sanders can do?

he’d need to start winning big to either overcome that lead or somehow convince superdelegates to switch their allegiances — and both scenarios seem pretty unlikely.

Marco Rubio finally gets a win in Texas !
