Super Tuesday 2016 states polls and delegates details in Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Texas, Virginia, Minnesota, Oklahoma 

Who will win the Super Tuesday 2016 poll among Democrats and Republicans? This is a question whose answer is no longer a secret even before the votes in primaries and caucuses are cast.

Almost every opinion poll conducted in the fourteen states where the voting for the primaries is to be held suggests that among Republicans no major upset is expected and Donald Trump is expected to win handsomely. There are many people who have been suggesting that things may change, nonetheless, even the most recent polls don’t show any change in ground realities.

It must be kept in kind that with such a huge number of delegates on offer, Super Tuesday is seen as a turning point in most presidential campaigns, and a key indicator as to who the nominees will be from each party.

In the meantime there is no denying the fact that when it comes to Republicans at least two or three candidates will leave the presidential nomination race following the March 1 poll for primaries. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, John Kasich, and Marco Rubio’s future depends on the outcome of Super Tuesday.

It must be kept in mind that for both Republicans and Democratic presidential hopefuls, Super Tuesday comes down to amassing delegates. For Republicans, 595 delegates are at stake. For Democrats, there are 1,004. Considering Republican candidates need 1,237 delegates to win the party’s nomination and Democrats need 2,383, Super Tuesday is one of the most important days in the US presidential election.

When compared to previous years, the 2016 Super Tuesday is far bigger. This year there is an expanded cast of Super Tuesday states. Alabama, Arkansas, and Texas have joined Super Tuesday, and Minnesota has also scheduled its primary on the same date. In short, Super Tuesday, which covers a broad swath of the United States – and politics of all persuasions – is a potent realisation of both the economic staying power and organisational skills of all of the candidates.

The day will also test the challenge that Bernie Sanders poses before Hillary Clinton. Can he come up with any surprises? On the other hand within the ranks of the Republicans, only Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio remain viable candidates for Super Tuesday and beyond. Senator Cruz’s home state of Texas is holding one of the primaries on March 1, and Cruz is relying on strong evangelic support.
