First Super Tuesday Results : Trump, Clinton Make Strong Showings

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton tightened their grips on their parties’ presidential nominations Tuesday, with both candidates starting the biggest night yet of the 2016 campaign with early victories over their competitors, who were left with increasingly narrow paths left to prevail.

First Super Tuesday Results : Trump, Clinton Make Strong Showings


The 12 so-called Super Tuesday states added their voices to a race for the White House that has captured the nation’s imagination as history could be made with its first female President—or its first reality show star to rise to the office. States also awarded delegates to the other hopefuls, including Democrat Bernie Sanders, who triumphed in his home state of Vermont and won his first Western state in Oklahoma, and Republican Ted Cruz, who won his home state of Texas, as well as Oklahoma.

Clinton posted several wins over Sanders, starting off with victories in Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Massachusetts and Tennessee, according to Associated Press projections. Republicans, meanwhile, finally stopped Trump from pulling off a clean sweep at about 9 p.m. E.T. He went five-for-five in Georgia, Alabama, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia to start.

But Cruz had a strong showing in the south, winning Texas and Oklahoma, according to Associated Press projections—his first wins since the Iowa caucuses briefly vaulted him to the top of the field. He was also running strong in other Southern states and was poised to pick up delegates even in defeat. Trump’s GOP rivals were looking to chip away at the momentum be brought into Tuesday, with three back-to-back wins. But Rubio’s middling performance across the country, coupled with Cruz’s victories in the south, threatened to seriously hobble Rubio’s candidacy and his effort to consolidate anti-Trump votes behind him.

Clinton, who has been looking toward the general election—and a likely matchup with Trump—since her blowout South Carolina win over Sanders last weekend, sought to keep her supporters engaged in the primary going forward.

“Now this campaign moves forward,” Clinton said at a campaign rally in Miami, a nod to the March 15 Florida primary. “We’re going to work for every vote and we will need all of you to continue volunteering, contributing, doing everything that you can.”

Indeed, even along these lines, it's conceivable Trump endures the entire procedure without the essential 1,237 when agents cast their first tallies at the GOP tradition in Cleveland. Party older folks were considering arrangements to deny him the designation on that first poll, and after that constrain agents to pick another person—maybe even somebody not at present running—to lead the gathering. It's a dangerous arrangement, yet one numerous Establishment-minded authorities are willing to take to avoid Nominee Trump.

In an indication of exactly how unconventional of a battle Trump has run, he had booked a question and answer session at 9 p.m. at his Florida house. While his adversaries were holding arouses with supporters, Trump was excited to hold forward and disclose to columnists why he was better than his opponents and—if history is an aide—writers, as well.

Before surveys shut, Trump kept on taking feedback from kindred Republicans for his starting refusal throughout the weekend to denounce the Ku Klux Klan and its previous pioneer David Duke, who has communicated solid backing for the leader. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell both stood up on Tuesday to say the Republican Party denounces dogmatism and partiality. "This gathering does not go after individuals' biases," Ryan said.

Sanders was at home in Vermont, the state he speaks to in the Senate and which voted Tuesday, to give him a greatly required win. Clinton clobbered him in South Carolina throughout the weekend, and vanquished him in Iowa and Nevada. Sanders relied on kindred Vermonters to give him a win. Sanders raced to claim triumph at a young hour at night, before different states could convey him the possible thrashings. His consultants were taking a gander at solid showings adjacent in Massachusetts, and also Colorado and Minnesota. Sanders has promised to proceed with his battle the distance until Democrats have their selecting tradition in Philadelphia.

"This crusade is not just about choosing a president," Sanders said. "It is about changing America. … Together, what we are going to do is make an economy that works for every one of us, not only the general population on top."

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, too, were vowing to continue their campaigns. Carson has been plodding along with deep—but quite—support among some Evangelicals, while Kasich is looking as his home state as his last stand when it votes on March 15. Neither Republican was expected to fare well on Tuesday, but both were still slated to appear in Thursday’s debate in Detroit.
