What is the Significance of Super Tuesday?

The Presidential primary elections have received an enormous amount of media attention, with seemingly endless debates and plenty of fodder for social media. The Democrats have a two person race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, while the Republican side has been fairly crowded (even with a number of dropouts as the primaries move along). Even with all the debates, punditry and speculation, actual results have been hard to come by with only a handful of states holding their primaries. This all changed on Super Tuesday.

Super Tuesday took place on March 1st, and was significant for having one day packed with primaries in eleven states (for both the Democratic and Republican parties). With more results now in, candidates are accumulating delegates and voters in upcoming states have a better idea of what the general election may look like.

In this year’s Super Tuesday, Donald Trump was the big winner on the Republican side, taking seven of the states available. Ted Cruz won three, including his home state of Texas, and Marco Rubio won a single state. For Democrats, Hillary Clinton won seven states to Bernie Sanders’ four (one being his home state of Vermont). There are still many primaries to go, but Super Tuesday firmly entrenched Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as the leading candidates to win the nomination for each party. The other candidates are not out of the race by any means, but will need a big turnaround to take the lead.
