If Trump and Clinton can repeat their March 1 feats, the race for the nomination on either camp will seem to be over. A different result could see more twists in the tale.

For nomination, a Republican candidate needs 1,237 delegates and Trump is leading the four-men race at the moment with 460 in his kitty. Ted Cruz has 370 and Marco Rubio 163 at the moment.

In the Democratic camp, Clinton 768 delegates while Bernie Sanders has 554. However, the former US secretary of state has 467 superdelegates which gives her an advantage. To get nomination, a Democratic candidate needs 2,383 delegates.
