Bernie Sanders is predicting he’ll do well in Democratic Party primary voting next Tuesday in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio after eking out a narrow victory over Hillary Clinton in Michigan, where polls had shown her in the lead.

Marco Rubio, who didn’t win any state last night, insists he’ll stay in the race until his home state of Florida, where polls show Donald Trump in the lead for the Republican presidential nomination.

NPR’s Domenico Montanaro talks with Here & Now’s Robin Young about the outlook after yesterday’s election results.
