Primary Day!

Today is another big primary day, with both Democrats and Republicans holding contests in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio.

The Republicans also hold their caucus in the Northern Mariana Islands today.

So, what's interesting about today is that some of the Republican contests become winner-take-all today. In Florida and Ohio, the Republican winner will get all the delegates. In Illinois, it's winner-take-most.

That means that today could be a very big day for Donald Trump, especially if he wins both Florida and Ohio. Which he may very well do, despite the fact that two of his opponents are from those states: Marco Rubio is a Senator from Florida, and John Kasich is Ohio's governor.

The Democratic primaries remain proportional; that is, the delegates are awarded based on the percentages. So, although who wins definitely matters, what matters even more is by how much they win.
