As the nation prepares for Super Tuesday on March 1st, one can only wonder what's going to transpire after 11 states decide who to nominate as their Presidential nominee. It seems that the two horse race between the Democrats is about to go up a gear after the widely expected result in South Carolina, where Hilary Clinton secured 8 out of 10 African-American voters. A far cry from her defeat 8 years ago when up against the then Senator Barack Obama.

Whilst the votes are still being counted, the exit polls suggest Clinton has a near 50 point margin over Sanders, who has already congratulated the much predicted winner. Bernie Sanders reminded the media that this is just the "beginning of the campaign."In reality, no one should underestimate the way polls can change in an instant, and with a large number of seats up for grabs on Tuesday it's anyone's ball game.

Super Tuesday

Sanders told the media after polls closed on Saturday: "Now it's on to Super Tuesday. In just three days, Democrats in 11 states will pick 10 times more pledged delegates on one day than were selected in the four early states so far in this campaign. Our grassroots political revolution is growing state by state, and we won't stop now."

Clintonalso upped the ante in front of her cheering supporters "Tomorrow, this campaign goes national.

Donald Trump

We are going to compete for every vote in every state: We are not taking anything and we are not taking anyone for granted."

As the Democrats pack their travel bags and prepare their speeches for the coming week, on the other side of the camp it seems what started as a 12 horse race, is down to 5 in the Republican stables. Things are also becoming far more graphic and sordid, sort of like a "tit for tat" battle between school boys jousting over their first love. Or is it really a cleverly thought out plan to bring to task what looks like an unstoppable Donald Trump.

Show us your Tax returns

But again, we see this "you show me yours, I'll show you mine" attitude.The fact that two Republican candidates Cruz and Rubio released partial details of their tax returns to the public in an attempt to draw Trump into the lion’s den. "We're putting these out today to put pressure on Trump and the other candidates to release theirs," said Rubio campaign spokesman Alex Conant.

Trump, on the other hand, seems to be running the midnight oil and has made it clear he will not release his details until a final audit has been completed, is this a smoke screen or just a tactic to divert attention? Does he really have something to hide? No matter what, the Republican camp is full of controversy and now tag team attacks against the front runner seem to be the way forward.

Isn't it about time the number of nominees in the Republican camp was reduced to 2?

There is so much at stake for the American people, yet we see the egos of Presidential candidates in full swing.As it stands at the moment, the credibility of the contenders is slowly dwindling, the one with the largest bark is leading the way forward, and will continue to do so until there's one clear challenger to Trump. Time for the Republicans to decide who they send forward to challenge the Democrats, in a contest that's determined by the credibility of the candidate, not the playground antics currently being flaunted for all to see.
