    Illinois will be the most interesting. Betting a donut voters there hate Rahm so much they take it out on Clinton.

    Another "Super" Tuesday. I'm going to miss Little Marco Rubio. Interested to see if Kasich can with THE Ohio State Primary.

    Hopefully Kasich pulls off a win in Ohio. I don't care too much if Rubio wins Florida, ultimately it may be better if he loses it because it will consolidate the anti Trump vote a bit more so it becomes harder for his 1/3rd of republican primary voters to add up enough to win.

    John may pull off Ohio, and Trump will probably take Florida.

    I'll curious to see how Ohio (Republicans and Democrat), Florida (Republicans) and Illinois (Democrat) plays out tonight.

    Gotta love that "democracy" on the democratic side with the super-delegates. It's basically a way to tell the "Peasants" and "Piss-ants" a select few know better than the people.

    So far the super delegates haven't changed the election outcome. In 2008 they came the closest, but most of them switched to Obama once he took the lead in pledged delegates. This time around Clinton would still be ahead even if it was just pledged delegates and Sanders would have just as big of a hole to dig out of.

    I sure wish Florida was not winner take all. A proportional allocation might not help Rubio enough but it could sure help the country make the odds steeper for Trump.

    Funny how Ohio went to a winner take all mode this time because they wanted to help their favorite son Kasich, but also because it was miffed that last time on proportional voting, Santorum got part of what the party wanted Romney to have all of. Now they hold breath and wonder if that was a good move or not since we know polls have sometimes been wildly off this season.

    Thanks for setting up a watch thread again! Trying to decide between nachos and popcorn for later on this evening.

    Wisconsin is going to be the next big battleground, but with Kasich taking Ohio, that all but assures that Trump will not have a majority going into the RNC. It will be a contested convention, which should definitely show the schism indeed.

    FiveThirtyEight has a really good post up about this now:

    No. It's an insurmountable lead for Hillary. He is nothing but a message candidate at this point.

    She is planning to win ALL five states tonight. It will be close in Missouri and Illinois, though.

    I am seriously shocked! I am SO happy for her!

    No, but he was done after Super Tuesday. His supporters probably won't pay attention and still complain about super delegates though.

    Well after today and much thought I decided to support Hillary. I would have liked to see Bernie win but it's not his time.

    Time for the democratic party to come together and establish a formidable presidential ticket of Clinton - Sanders as the VP.
