 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appears to be on the minds of many Missouri voters, whether they like him or not.

Voters are casting ballots Tuesday in Missouri's primaries to determine who will win 71 Democratic and 52 Republican delegates to the parties' national conventions.

At polling places, some Democrats said they were voting for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders because they were viewed more favorably than Trump.

Some Republican supporters for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich also cited concerns about Trump's demeanor when explaining their votes.

But some voters said they were drawn to strong leadership qualities they saw in Trump.

Polls are to remain open until 7 p.m.
