Clinton and Trump Soar to Wins in Florida (With Rubio Leading Only in Miami-Dade)
In a result widely forecast in polls, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have won Florida's primaries by hefty margins.
According to CNN's exit polls, about 47 percent of Democrats thought Sanders' policies were "not realistic" compared to just 16 percent who thought the same of Clinton's. Another 25 percent found Sanders' policies "too anti-business." Seventy-four percent thought Clinton had a better chance to beat Trump in November.
