Super Tuesdays narrow the race

Super Tuesdays narrow the race

Super Tuesday primaries recently concluded, they included Democratic contests in 14 states. Candidates Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mike Bloomberg, and Tulsi Gabbard were on the ballot. 34.1 percent of the delegates were awarded to the candidates on Super Tuesday.
The Democratic party and the Republican party in recent years have been on vast different sides.
“The candidates can’t be more polar opposites on both sides,” art teacher Rita Frakes said. “I think the right is so much different than the left at this point. I also worry about the age of the candidates.”
Biden gained the upper hand on Sanders on Tuesday winning Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Sanders won California, Colorado, Utah, and Vermont.
“Previously I though Bernie was going to sweep all the states, then surprisingly, Biden got a bunch of support from states I didn’t expect. I expected the southern states to have support, but didn’t expect Massachusetts or Maine,” sophomore Ayman Hemen said. “I think that Biden could have decent chance at winning against Trump because he is pretty moderate. For Bernie, its more of a hopeful type thing. It is not very realistic but if it did happen, then that would be the most optimistic outcome for me.”
Following the primaries, Warren dropped out, but hasn’t yet announced an endorsement. Michael Bloomberg dropped out and endorsed Biden. On March 10, five other states held their primaries. Biden won Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, and Missouri. Bernie won North Dakota. Currently, Biden stands in lead with 860 delegates. Sanders trails behind with 710, and Gabbard has only two delegates. A total of 1,991 delegates are needed to win the nomination.
