Donald Trump is ahead in three quarters of the next dozen states to vote in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, including Nevada.

Of the 11 states voting in the crucial “Super Tuesday” event on March 1 latest polls showed the billionaire up by seemingly insurmountable margins in Massachusetts, Alabama and Vermont, with narrower advantages in Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and Alaska.

Ted Cruz, the US Senator from Texas, held a narrow lead in his home state, and in Arkansas, while Marco Rubio was up by two points in Minnesota.
