Biden And Trump Dominate On Super Tuesday

The current and former United States President Joe Biden and Donald Trump dominated Super Tuesday races that took place on March 5, 2024, and simplified their way to the general election for the 2024 Presidential race.

On Super Tuesday, voters in 15 US states, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia, cast their votes in the Republican presidential primary.

Except for Alaska, all these states also hold their Democratic primary contests on Tuesday.

The US territory of American Samoa simultaneously holds its Democratic caucus, and Iowa also holds its Democratic primary on Tuesday while Republicans hold their Iowa caucuses in January (Trump won the Iowa Caucus in January 2024).

Both the presidential candidates won Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, California, Maine, Minnesota, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Biden also won the Democratic primary race in Iowa, Utah, and Vermont.

However, both candidates also faced unexpected defeat. Biden lost American

Samoa’s Democratic caucus to entrepreneur and politician Jason Palmer. Out of 91 votes cast, Biden secured 41, and Palmer won 50.

On the other side, Trump was defeated by Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was his only rival for the Republican party’s nomination in Vermont’s Republican primary.

Haley secured 50% of the votes, while Trump could gain 45%.

With their remarkable victories on Super Tuesday, Biden and Trump have won the presidential nomination for their respective parties and will likely face off in the general election in November 2024.

Following the votes on Super Tuesday and the results became clear, Trump delivered a speech at his residence, Mar-a-Lago, in Miami, Florida.

In his remark, he criticized the Biden administration over their immigration policy while calling him the “worst president’ in history.

He said, “They call it Super Tuesday for a reason.”

Although Biden did not speak publicly, he said, “Trump is determined to destroy our democracy.” and labeled him as “driven by grievance and grift, focused on his own revenge and retribution, not the American people.”

In his statement, Biden said, “Tonight’s results leave the American people with a clear choice: Are we going to keep moving forward, or will we allow Donald Trump to drag us backward into the chaos, division, and darkness that defined his term in office?”

Biden and Trump lead their parties despite facing several challenges in the presidential race.

In many states, the President is opposed due to his support to Israel in its war with Hamas and is considered a less favorable candidate due to his age.

Trump, in contrast, faces multiple criminal lawsuits. As such, it would be interesting to see who gains the White House in 2024.
