Donald Trump is in position to take firm control of the US Republican presidential race as 11 states vote today, an outcome likely to intensify concerns among party leaders.
In the Democratic race, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton can go a long way toward silencing concerns about her candidacy with big victories of her own over democratic socialist Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday.
According to Reuters News Agency, Trump was leading in nearly all the states that will hold primary contests or caucuses, most of them in the American South. The lone exception appeared to be Texas, where U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, who represents that state, enjoyed a narrow lead.
Super Tuesday is the biggest single day of state-by-state presidential nominating contests for the November 8th election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama.
