A CNN/ORC International poll conducted just before Tuesday’s Indiana primary found Clinton leading Trump by 13 points among registered voters nationally, 54 percent to 41 percent.

1-3 Anti biotics unnecessaryNearly one in three antibiotic prescriptions doled out in the United States is "inappropriate," said a study Tuesday that called for improved stewardship of this important medicine. Experts say overuse of antibiotics leads to more antibiotic-resistant infections — affecting two million people and killing 23,000 each year in the United States alone, according to the report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

The study found that in the United States in 2011, 262 million outpatient antibiotic prescriptions were dispensed — almost one for each of the nation's 300 million people.
