6:17 pm
up the most. and in both the georgia and in texas. he seems to be the beneficiary of the decision by rubio to go really hard in attacking trump in the same way that trum an tax him and cruz is not being hurt quite as much. he is rising in texas. i think he will carry texas. might not be by the margin people think because we often -- sometimes they sometimes underpoll trump a little bit because them want to be correct and that's how they got iowa right so we will wait and see. looks like most of the states, trump will be carrying the day on tuesday. >> sounds like john kasich may be -- by this momentum and even if he comes in fourthth, may stay in the race to see how it plays out. >> well here is one thing this both rubio and kasich have to consider and i don't think you will see rubio do this but kasich might. kasich has been trailing in ohio to trump in the polls.
6:18 pm
badly right now in florida. if everything stayed as it ace and that is -- things are fluid and dynamic and things can change but if they were today both i think kasich, would not want to be defeated in ohio. because he is a sitting governor. would be embarrassing and rubio probably would be thinking twice about being defeated because he has been in government all his life. so that is a decision they will have to make. i would say after michigan. if trump wins michigan, then florida is going to be a difficult course. especially with john kasich picking up points. i'm guessing, i poll florida ul athe time for you guys, i'm guessing that kasich is picking up points that probably where push up supporterts and now are going kasich as well so this whole thing is very fluid. a week ago we didn't know this would go on so could all change. but right now would i say they are thinking. >> we appreciate you crunchping numbers for us as always. thanks. >> sure. >> thank you. >> checking in with glen in the weather center, dry forecast

6:20 pm
go throughout the entire week. a few pockets of early morning fog possible but not too bad. little if any rainfall expected right through the upcoming weekend. best chance of rain looks to be late in the day. 72 in miami. peninsula. cooler in the panhandle. but again very nice. high pressure still latest storm system cruises to the north. another one is locked and loaded coming in out of the colorado rockies that will work its way through the central great lakes from chicago on up to the north. producing some snow but what is important to note is that the storm system movement is now going from west to east pretty quickly. never gives a good chance, ail good opportunity to latch on to any real cold arctic air and pull it south so that's going to keep us cool but comfortable. 56 in sanford tonight. 47 up towards gainesville. here is a quick look at the highs for tomorrow. upper 70's town about 80 up in ocala. low 80s inland.
