[翻译]As It Is - US Presidential Race Could Be Clearer This Week

It could become clear this week who the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees will be.

本周谁将成为共和党和民主党的总统候选人可能会变得明朗。

Twelve states will hold primaryelections or caucusesTuesday, called “Super Tuesday.” In most of those states, public opinion studies show Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton have much more support than other candidates.

12个州将在“超级星期二”举行初选或党团会议。这其中大多数州的民意调查表明川普和希拉里比其他候选人拥有更多支持。

Last week, Trump said people “are so tired of these politicians -- all talk, no action. We are going to make America great again. We are going to win, win, win.”

上周,川普表示,“人们对这些政客光说不做已经厌倦了。我们将会让美国再度伟大。我们要赢赢赢。”

Republican candidates said they will try to stop or at least slow Trump’s campaign.

共和党候选人表示,他们将设法阻止或至少减缓川普的竞选。

Senator Marco Rubio said “Trump will never be the Republican nominee. We are not going to let the conservative movement, and the party of Ronald Reagan and the party of Abraham Lincoln be taken over by a first-rate con artist.”

参议员马可·鲁比奥表示,“川普永远不会成为共和党的总统候选人。我们不会让保守运动,不会让出了里根和林肯的共和党被一个一流的骗子接管。”

Trump answered that Rubio has not won any caucusesor primaryelections. He said Rubio is hated in his home state of Florida.

川普回应说,鲁比奥没有赢过任何一场党团会议或初选,连他的家乡佛罗里达州都讨厌他。

Clinton has also criticized Trump. After she defeated Senator Bernie Sanders in the South Carolina primary Saturday by almost 50 points, she said, “we do not need to make America great again. America has never stopped being great. But we do need to make America whole again. Instead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers.”

克林顿也批评了川普。她周六在南卡罗来纳州以将近50个点的优势击败桑德斯之后表示,“我们没必要让美国再度伟大,美国从未停止伟大。但是我们确实需要让美国再度变为一个整体。美国也无需筑墙,我们需要破除障碍。”

Senator Sanders says his campaign against Hillary Clinton is not over. He said “the middle class of this country has been shrinking and almost all new income and wealth has been going to the top one percent.”

参议员桑德斯表示他对抗希拉里的竞选并未结束。他说,“美国的中产阶级一直在萎缩,几乎所有新的收入和财富都流向了最富有的1%。”
