Tonight is the biggest night of the 2016 presidential season. Everyone is watching Donald Trump to see if he can score back to back wins in Florida and Ohio. They are the two biggest voter rich prizes of the night and they are winner take all states.

What also makes them important is they are home to Sen. Marco Rubio in the Sunshine State, while Gov. John Kasich hopes to come away with a win in the Buckeye State. Rubio is trailing Trump in Florida by double digits, while in Ohio Kasich has a very slight edge over the GOP frontrunner.

Other states up for grabs include North Carolina, Missouri and Illinois all good delegate rich places to win. Trump leads in all of those states in the polls but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz could pull upsets in Illinois and his best shot to win in Missouri.

On the Democratic side they are fighting in the same states as the Republicans. Hillary Clinton leads in all of the states with Sen. Bernie Sanders, close in Ohio, Illinois and Missouri. Clinton will win big in both Florida and North Carolina.

No matter what happens as long as Clinton wins Florida and North Carolina she will remain way ahead in delegates.
