LAS VEGAS, NV -  "Las Vegas, here we come!" So says the GOP about the upcoming caucus. And what happens here could determine who wins the Republican slot on the ballot. The candidates are doubling down. Only one will get lucky....with the voters, that is, and ever since South Carolina, Donald Trump has been on a winning streak.

"We won with everything. We won with highly educated, pretty well educated, and poorly educated."

Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are wild cards. Now that Jeb Bush has folded, his supporters are up for grabs.

Ted Cruz calls Bush, "A man who didn't go to the gutter and engage in insults and attacks."

Actor Donnie Wahlberg is voting Republican for the first time and he's betting on Rubio. While Rubio takes shots at Cruz.
"It's every single day something comes out of the Cruz campaign that's deceptive and untrue."

Cruz critics are wondering whether he's bluffing when it comes to deporting the 12 million undocumented people. Just last month he passed on the idea that was suggested by Trump. But haven't we seen candidates flip flop their views before?

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders' newest supporter's voice will be heard in South Carolina ahead of the next Democratic primary. "This is your dude, Spike Lee. When Bernie gets in the White House, he will do the right thing."

Houston payed its cards right and the University of Houston will host the next Republican debate this Thursday. But while in Vegas, it's a real GOP gamble. John Kasich is still hoping to win the jackpot, too. But odds are, he's the real long shot!
