Campaigning is hitting fevered-pace in the United States, as would-be Presidential candidates make their final pitch ahead of "Super Tuesday."

On the Republican side, the Republican establishment is working overtime to try to counter the momentum of New York billionaire Donald Trump, who has become the Republican front-runner after taking the primary in South Carolina this past week.

Middle-of-the-road Republicans have been looking toward Florida Senator Marco Rubio as their hope of trying to derail Trump's influence on the Republican voter.

"I really believed that voters would see through this con job that he's trying to do and obviously that hasn't happened. He's convinced a lot of people and now's the time where we have to address it. I believe a first-rate con artist is on the verge of taking over the party of Lincoln and Reagan and now or never, we need to remind people of what's at stake here. We're about to lose the conservative movement to someone who's not a conservative and the party of Lincoln and Reagan to a con artist."

Trump, who has surprised many with his growing popularity among grass-roots Republican voters, continues to dominate the headlines through his campaign rhetoric.

"We're really winning with everybody and I am really thrilled by it. I think we're going to do well on Tuesday. We're going beat out the establishment. The establishment is disgraceful. Little Marco is doing not so well in Florida. He's down about 20 points. And the people in Florida can't stand him. He couldn't be elected dog catcher in Florida."

Republicans are due to vote in 11 states on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is hoping to try to overcome a stinging defeat in South Carolina, where Hillary Clinton beat him by almost 50 percent on Saturday.

"Super Tuesday" in the US primary race is considered a make-or-break day for candidates, as a good portion of delegates for the party's respective conventions is doled out in the vote.
