Saturday, March 5, 2016

Kansas Democratic Caucus
Democratic Caucus Information
1pm to 3pm CT
Delegates: 37
Live Results: Politico
Winner: Sanders

Kansas could be a competitive race on the Democratic side. Polls show Hillary Clinton with a reasonable lead, but with almost 40% of voters still undecided, this race is a toss-up.


Kansas Republican Caucus
Caucus Information
10am to 2pm CT
Delegates: 40
Live Results: Politico
Winner: Cruz

As with the Democratic race, the Republican side is close but currently gives the front runner an edge. The latest polling shows Donald Trump leading at 26%, however, 39% remain undecided. I would call this race a toss-up as well.


Kentucky Republican Caucus
Caucus Information
10am to 4pm Local Time (either ET or CT)
Delegates: 45
Live Results: CNN
Winner: Trump

The last poll in Kentucky is from weeks ago and shows Trump with a 13 point lead. However, given theLive Results: amount that remain undecided, this race can also be considered a toss-up. Trump may be a favorite, but he has not done as well in caucuses as he has in primaries.


Louisiana Primary
Primary Information
7am to 8pm CT
Delegates: 58 Democratic, 47 Republican
Live Results: Politico
Winners: Clinton, Trump

Donald Trump holds a sizable lead on the Republican side and should do quite well, likely winning in Louisiana. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is favored by upwards of 40 points


Maine Republican Caucus
Caucus Information
Time varies by county
Delegates: 23
Live Results: CNN
Winner: Cruz

There has been no recent polling in Maine so the state of the race is likely a toss-up.


Nebraska Democratic Caucus
Caucus Information
Time varies by county
Delegates: 30
Live Results: CNN
Winner: Sanders

No polling exists for this race, but Bill Clinton has been in Nebraska this week campaigning for his wife. I’d have to naturally give Clinton the edge here, but anything could happen in a caucus situation.


Sunday, March 6, 2016

Maine Democratic Caucus
Caucus Information
Varies by county, between 1pm and 8pm ET
Delegates: 30
Live Results: CNN
Winner: Sanders

Maine is in the backyard of Vermont so Bernie Sanders could do quite well here. This could be a close one but I suspect Sanders may have the edge heading into it.


Puerto Rico Republican Caucus
Delegates: 23
Live Results: New York Times
Winner: Rubio

I suspect Marco Rubio will do well in Puerto Rico since he has been one of the few candidates discussing their economic problems as of late.


We’ll have results trickling in over the weekend and a full wrap up on Saturday night and Sunday night with the results of the day.
