Trump, Sanders notch Indiana primary victories: NBC projection

Donald Trump will win the Indiana GOP primary, NBC News projected as polls closed at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday. As the likely Republican nominee, Trump has baffled his naysayers who never would have imagined him finishing on top when he first declared his candidacy in the lobby of Trump Tower back in June.

Of the 57 GOP delegates for Indiana, NBC News said it was assigning at least 51 for Trump.

On the Democratic side, NBC News projected Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont as the winner, further frustrating rival Hillary Clinton who had hoped to have the nomination wrapped up at this point.

Voters in Indiana took to the polls on Tuesday as the primary races in both parties appeared to be drawing to a close. Recent statewide polls had indicated that the front-runners in both parties were likely to win their contests. Former Secretary of State Clinton on average led Sanders by about 7 points going into Tuesday, and businessman Trump averaged a double-digit lead over the rest of the Republican field, according to RealClearPolitics.
