Michigan is the next big prize in the presidential campaign, and a new Marist poll shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton well ahead of their rivals. 

Trump's lead comes after the Republican debate in Detroit Thursday night, when he and Marco Rubio spent a lot of time trading insults. Rubio trails Trump and Ted Cruz in the Michigan poll. 

John Kasich is hoping to finally gain some momentum with Tuesday's primary, and a poll from American Research Group actually showed him beating Trump in the primary. Unfortunately for Kasich, all other recent polls put him in last place.
