Millions vote in make-or-break test for White House hopefuls

Americans in five states voted Tuesday in presidential primaries crucial to the White House hopes of frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but which also showcased deep-seated discontent of a downtrodden working class. For Republicans, the day may tell whether Trump can ride a tide of voter anger all the way to the nomination in July — or whether he will face a hostile and bitterly divided party at a contested convention. For Democrats, the contests in the racially diverse, industrial Midwest will test Clinton’s electability outside of the South, where African-American voters have given her victory after victory.
