Where Is Donald Trump On Super Tuesday? He'll Be Trying To Get Ahead Of The Game
Super Tuesday is finally here, with more than a dozen primaries and caucuses taking place around the country. And because there will be voting in more than one state, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump will be making the rounds. Trump is scheduled to make a trip to Ohio on Tuesday, where he will be hosting a rally at the Columbus airport. Doors open at 9a.m. (ET) but the rally will start at noon and will be held at the Signature Flight Hangar.
Ohio's primaries aren't until March 15, but that won't stop Trump from trying to grab a few Ohio votes from Gov. John Kasich while voters are heading to the polls in Super Tuesday states. But that's not the only place you'll see the businessman on March 1. Trump will be heading to Kentucky for another rally — the state isn't holding its Republican caucus until March 5 — immediately after his Ohio rally ends. Thousands are expected to show up at the rally at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.
But that's still not all. Trump will end Super Tuesday in Palm Beach, Florida after his Kentucky rally. He has scheduled a last minute Super Tuesday press conference at his Mar-A-Lago Club. Florida's Republican primaries aren't until March 15, but that's not stopping the businessman from heading South, the state his current biggest GOP rival Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is representing.
A CNN poll from Monday shows that Trump is polling at 49 percent among national Republican primary voters, Rubio is polling at 16 percent, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 15 percent. Ohio Gov. John Kasich spoke to CNN's Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday Feb. 28 about his Super Tuesday predictions. Kasich believes Trump is likely to win most — if not all — of the Super Tuesday states, which would put him in a great position to win the Republican presidential nomination for the general election.

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has spoken openly about his thoughts on a Trump presidency — and he does not seem ready to Make America Great Again. On Feb. 25 at Capitol Hill he said, "I’ve got a ticket on the Titanic. So I am like on the team that bought a ticket on the Titanic after we saw the movie. This is what happens if you nominate Trump." I predict that he will not be attending any of Donald Trump's Super Tuesday events.
While Trump will not be heading to any Super Tuesday states on March 1, that's probably telling of his confident polling numbers, which suggest he is likely to win regardless of where he is.
Believe it or not, both primaries and caucuses can be laugh-out-loud hilarious. Don't believe us? Have a listen to Bustle's "The Chat Room" podcast...
