Predictions: Political polls in many of the Super Tuesday states haven't been released yet, but as the Iowa caucus is the first and therefore maybe most influential of the caucuses, the latest Iowa polls may be some indication as to which candidates will have the most success Super Tuesday.

The latest Quinnipiac Republican Iowa poll released Tuesday shows GOP frontrunner Donald Trump just topping Texas Sen. Ted Cruz 31% to 29%. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio placed third at 13%. 

The latest Quinnipiac Democrat Iowa poll shows Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders beating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton  49% to 45%, an emerging trend in recent political polls that's made Sanders a viable threat to Clinton after she remained the definite frontrunner for months. 

Sanders' recent rally in Minnesota, one of the participating states, had an overwhelming turnout of more than 14,000 people, the Washington Post reported. The state's voters tend towards liberal. 

The latest national polls, however, show Clinton still leading Sanders by almost 15% while Trump leads the GOP candidates nationally by 15.6%.
