Ohio's primary election is only two days away, and Republican candidates Donald Trump and John Kasich's campaigns have major stock in Ohio; both candidates spent most of the weekend in Ohio rallying support ahead of Tuesday's primary.

The most recent GOP polls show Trump and Kasich nearly neck-and-neck in Ohio.

In a poll conducted Tuesday, Fox News predicted Kasich will win Ohio with 34 percent of the vote (Trump at 29 percent). A live-dial poll conducted by NBC News, The Wall Street Journal and Marist predict Kasich winning Ohio with 39 percent of the vote.

However, CNN projected Friday that Trump will take 36 percent of the Ohio votes with Kasich following at 34 percent.

Quinnipiac and Public Policy Polling also have Trump winning Ohio with Kasich trailing behind by five and three percent of the votes, respectively.

However, FiveThirtyEight's comprehensive 2016 primary forecast said Kasich has a 68 percent chance of winning Ohio on Tuesday.
