Trump Set For A Big Saturday Sweep

Saturday looks like another big weekend for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and his battle against the establishment that is hoping to stop his march to the GOP nomination. Just like Super Tuesday if the poll numbers hold up then Trump and will keep rolling up delegates.

Louisiana Republican presidential primary offers up a juicy 47 delegates and both Trump and Clinton hold double digit leads over their nearest rivals. Trump is up by 20 percent in the polls over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and almost 16 percent over Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

The GOP also will battle in Kentucky Republican caucus where 45 delegates are up for grabs. Once again Trump is up by 15 percent over Rubio in the Blue Grass state with Cruz lagging behind by 18 percent.

The Kansas Republican caucus with 40 delegates and this time Trump is up by 12 percent over Cruz and 13 percent over Rubio. Both Cruz and Rubio are looking for an upset win in any of Saturday’s three big showdowns. The smallest contest of the day in Maine Caucus, where  23 delegates.  No polling available at the moment.

Trump easily won Massachusetts on Super Tuesday but had a narrow win in Vermont. Ohio Gov. John Kasich finished 2nd in both states March 6 Puerto Rico (Primary, 23): No polling available

Meanwhile, if Trump can sweep the weekend that would just keep his momentum moving forward with more big states on the line on Tuesday.
