Super Tuesday is almost upon us, and that means major election results for every presidential candidate. The bipartisan event, held March 1 in 14 states and one territory, may be the most important day in the primaries! Click through for more details!
Who’s ready for Super Tuesday? March 1, 2016 marks the biggest day in the 2016 primary election cycle, and may be the deciding factor in progressing (or stopping) a lot of candidates campaigns! In 14 states across the nation, and in American Samoa, voters will cast their ballots and make history. Click through for more details about this significant event!
Super Tuesday is consider so, well, super, because not only do so many locations hold primaries and caucuses at the same time, but more delegates are up for grabs than any other day of the election cycle. This is a crucial day for any of the candidates, democratic or republican.
In these states, both Democratic and Republican primaries are being held: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas, Vermont and Virginia. The Tennessee, Alaska, North Dakota and Wyoming primaries are for republicans only, while the American Samoa caucus is just for democratic voters. It’s confusing, but if you live in any of these places, March 1 is your big day to go out, vote and make a difference!
With Hillary Clinton, 68, winning the Nevada caucus on February 20, and Donald Trump, 69, winning the South Carolina primary the same night, they’re thought of as the frontrunners for Super Tuesday. But it may not be as easy as cinching a victory in one state. Hillary definitely has an advantage over Bernie Sanders, 74; she even won Super Tuesday against then-candidate Barack Obama, 54 in 2008!
But Ted Cruz, 45, is holding out hope that he’ll claim victory in the SEC states, those five states nicknamed because they have collegiate football teams that play in the Southeastern Conference: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Texas and Tennessee. This is what Ted’s depending on to cement his shot at the presidency, but if Trump pulls through and gobbles up those votes — and those delegates — Ted’s going to find himself in a sticky situation!
