Results have started coming out from Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses. While Republican front runner Donald Trump seems to be doing very well, a great performance by Ted Cruz in several states including two wins in Texas and Oklahoma mean that he remains in the race.

On the other hand while initial trends showed strong showing by Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton, the 74 year old senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders is not doing very badly either.

He has already won two states in the form of Oklahoma and Colorado besides his home state of Vermont. Nonetheless in the state where there are 255 delegates on offer in Texas, Hillary Clinton is doing very well.

On the other hand the front runners Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton have each won in several of the states voting in the so-called Super Tuesday elections, according to early estimates. Voters from Vermont to Colorado, Alaska to American Samoa and several states headed to polling places and caucus sites on the busiest day of the 2016 primaries.

Latest details coming from states suggest that Trump finished on top in the Republican primary in Virginia, Alabama, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Georgia. Texas Senator Ted Cruz topped his rivals in his home state, as well as in Oklahoma. Following his impressive performance, while talking to media he rubbished Marco Rubio saying if there was one loser tonight it was none other than him.

Complete results are expected to take some more time as voting is still ongoing in other contests or the races were too close to call. Clinton and Trump were pressing for sweeping victories that could distance them from their party rivals and move them closer to a November presidential election showdown.
