7:07 p.m. Things seem to be turning out in favor of Hillary Clinton. She is doing well among all demographic group except for young people. As the exit polls show, she is winning black voters overwhelmingly and white voters by a narrower margin. She is winning every age group over 30, women and men, those with college degree and without, those making more than $100,000 and those making less, self-identifying liberals and moderates. The only major demographic Sanders captured in Georgia was people 17-29.
7:00 p.m. News reports suggest that Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic primaries in Georgia and Virginia, while Bernie Sanders has won Vermont.
6:30 p.m. So it is massive win for Hillary Clinton. With the exception of Vermont, majorities of Democratic primary voters said they think that either Hillary Clinton is the only honest or trustworthy candidate or both she and Sanders are trustworthy and honest.
Latest performance by Republican candidates
Voting for the Super Tuesday 2016 is underway. As many as 14 states and United States territories are voting at the moment or will be voting in the next few hours. The results will start arriving within a few hours and till late night we will have a clear picture about who has won, by what margin and how close was the fight.
When it comes to Republican caucuses and primaries being held today, a lot is at stake. A Republican candidate must receive 1,237 delegates out of the total 2,472 available to be eligible for the nomination. For the Democrats, that number is a lot higher at 2,383 out of the total 4,765 delegates. So if Hillary Clinton needs to grab the nomination she will have to get as many as 2383 delegates. The same stands for Bernie Sanders.
As far total delegates on offer during Super Tuesday is concerned, there are 595 delegates at stake for the Republicans today, about 20 percent of the total GOP delegates. As far as Democrats are concerned, there are a huge 1,015 delegates on offer today.
Donald Trump has a clear edge over his competitors. Donald Trump is leading polls in most of the 11 states holding Republican nominating contests in Super Tuesday, except Texas, where Ted Cruz is ahead and by far, and Minnesota, where Marco Rubio is leading according to the last poll, done in January. If Trump runs the table, he may become unstoppable, according to pollster John Zobgy. Trump has already won three of the partyâ€™s four nominating contests â€” New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

When it comes to Ted Cruz, he is expected to end up as the second best among the Republicans. Ted Cruz is expected to win Texas, his home-state. But he has to win big to stay in the race. After winning the Iowa caucuses, the first in the nominating contests, Cruz hasnâ€™t won any other state. He is locked in a close fight for the second slot with Marco Rubio in national polls, 19.8% to 17.4%.

As far as Democratic candidates are concerned, Hillary Clinton is the clear front runner. Polls suggest that she is ahead in polls in Texas, Georgia, Virginia, Arkansas (home-state of the Clintons), Alabama and Tennessee, and mostly by double-digits, and up north in Massachusetts. A strong showing on Super Tuesday, as forecast by polls, could set her on the path to party nomination.
When it comes to the Vermont Senator, he is expected to win a couple of small states. Bernie Sanders is leading in home-state Vermont, Colorado and Minnesota, and could turn Massachusetts and Oklahoma into close contests. â€œSanders has the enthusiasm and money,â€ Zobgy said, adding, â€œLook for him to go to the very end.â€ He has won one contest so far, the New Hampshire primary. So things are looking rather very exciting at the moment.
