Republican front-runner Donald Trump won the Arkansas Republican primary Tuesday, bringing him one step closer to the Republican nomination.

The state’s 40 delegates are allotted proportionally.

A poll from Hendrix College Monday had Sen. Ted Cruz up at 27 percent, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio and Trump at 23 percent. Rubio had the key endorsement of Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, but it wasn’t enough to get a victory.

For the entirety of Super Tuesday, Republican candidates are fighting for 595 Republican delegates and Democrats have 1,004 Democratic delegates up for grabs. Republicans have 11 contests and Democrats have 12.

A CNN/ORC national poll released Monday reported Trump’s popularity is higher than ever. The poll found 49 percent of Republican voters nationwide. The rest of the pack is far behind, with Rubio at 16 percent, Cruz at 15 percent, Ben Carson at 10 percent and Gov. John Kasich at 6 percent.
