Donald Trump is barely holding onto the lead for the Republicans. Ben Carson and Marco Rubio are closing in on his lead and they may be able to overtake him in the coming weeks. Trump is continuously being embarrassed on policy points and now that he has released his secretive tax plan, he may not have any new policy points that are worth discussing besides his typical blanket statements. Carson is a much more established candidate when it comes to talking policy, but he is radical on certain topics and may scare away moderate Republicans. In the end, Rubio may be the perfect candidate for the party going forward and he should receive a lot of support in the coming weeks.
Clinton and Sanders are still duking it out for the top spot for the Democrats. Clinton is the go-to candidate for the party, but Sanders is stirring the pot and has a real shot at overtaking Clinton, who many voters support because of the party she is affiliated with. If Sanders can convince voters that he is the more progressive and liberal candidate—which is the truth—he may be able to overtake Clinton and head into 2016 as the Democrats candidate for president.
