Bernie Sanders scored a  narrow  win  over Hillary Clinton in the Michigan Democratic primary , this  is perhaps   the greatest upset since the primaries started . Bernie Scored 50 percent of the vote with 63  delegates  while Hillary Clinton scored 48 percent with 53  delegates.  Other candidates scored 1.9 percent in the keenly contested primary.

 

The outcome sets up defining contests on March 15 in states including Ohio, Florida and Illinois, where Clinton hoped her momentum coming out of Michigan would allow her to garner enough delegates to create an all-but-insurmountable delegate lead.

 

Donald Trump won the Michigan  Republican Primaries as speculated defeating his closest rivals Ted Cruz and John  Kasich who came second and third respectively . He scored 35.8 percent while Ted Cruz and John Kasich scored 24.7 and 24.3 percent respectively.
