Super Tuesday 2016 Polls, predictions, Schedule: SEC Primary States Heading For Major Showdown

As many as 14 states will be voting in the Super Tuesday 2016. This is going to be an important time when it comes to deciding the presidential candidates from both the parties, Democrats and Republicans.

For the last several months, presidential hopefuls from both the parties are trying to attract people’s attention towards them. They are involved in non-stop campaigning and doing everything to get people’s confidence.

There is no denying the fact that fighting the US presidential poll is among the longest and most arduous exercises in the world. First you have to fight it out in a long drawn nomination fight. Actual presidential elections are not that much tiresome in many other democratic nations in different parts of the world.donald trump vs marco rubio

In the last more than a month caucuses and primary elections were held in four states. But on Super Tuesday supporters of both the parties will be electing their presidential candidate in as many as fourteen states.

It must be kept in mind that Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and Wyoming are the states participating in Super Tuesday. The full list of elections can be found here.

A report while detailing the concept of Super Tuesday says, “Super Tuesday was conceived as “a device to keep out insurgents,” presidential historian Michael Beschloss told NBC. “The idea was, you have all those primaries on one day, hard for somebody to win unless they’ve got a lot of money, name ID [and] organization.” About 880 delegates are on the table this year, with candidates competing with one another to reach the 2,383 delegates to clinch the 2016 presidential nomination”.

In the meantime a poll suggests that Hillary Clinton has upper hand in most of the Super Tuesday states. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders aren’t quite as close in the polls. Clinton is leading Sanders in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, according to RealClearPolitics. Sanders is leading in his home state of Vermont by a wide margin, and has a slim lead in Massachusetts.
