Now, even though it was Super Tuesday, a lot can change in the next few months. The Unknown-12primaries officially end in June and many things could change course. Many people in the beginning of this race never knew who Bernie Sanders was and look at him now. He is starting to catch up to the popularity of Hillary Clinton.

However, I can’t say who would officially become the candidate for the Democrats because it is a tight race even though the results show differently. Many people were surprised that Sanders won Oklahoma, but many people knew that Hillary would win a lot of southern states.

Most of those states have voted, so what could happen now? Would Bernie Sanders ct-bernie-sanders-ted-cruz-iowa-political-revolutions-20160201win the rest of the states? Who knows.

For the Republicans, Trump has won the most states, but he didn’t win Texas, which wasn’t a big surprise. Many knew that Cruz would win that state. A name that may not be familiar is John Kasich. I don’t know him that well, but he is waiting for the Ohio primary to see if he wins his home state. If he doesn’t win Ohio, it could be a huge blow to his campaign.

One name you probably didn’t see was Ben Carson. That’s because he’s likely to drop out of the race. He has not been doing so hot.

Arizona votes for it primaries is on March 22, 2016. Mark that date on your calendars for those that are voting. This presidential race will be one that will go down in history.
