Super Tuesday: Clinton, Trump win big; Cruz takes Texas; Rubio scores first win
Super Tuesday: Clinton, Trump win big; Cruz takes Texas; Rubio scores first win - Geopolitica.info

Eleven US states voted in the primary elections yesterday, March 1, otherwise known as Super Tuesday. The day proved to be successful for the Trump and Clinton campaigns, as each had significantly more wins than their respective competitors. Although Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were able to win a few states, they still lag behind Donald Trump in regards to delegate votes. In order to win the Republican party’s nomination, a candidate needs to secure 1,237 delegates. Right now, Donald Trump has 315 delegate votes, 233 of which came from the victories on Super Tuesday. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have 205 and 106 respectively. Similarly, Hilary Clinton has been able to win 1,055 delegates in comparison to Bernie Sanders who has won just 418 out of the needed 2,383 to win the Democratic party’s nomination. Despite Bernie Sanders’ win in Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and his home state of Vermont, Clinton won seven states, proving she is able to connect with the Southern minorities. The results of Super Tuesday will  most likely lead to candidates such as Ben Carson and John Kasich reconsidering their candidacy and their removal from the race may give Rubio and Cruz a shot at slowing the momentum of Donald Trump.
