Super Tuesday Polls 2016: Republican SEC Primary States, Dates and All You Need to Know
Donald Trumpâ€™s brisk walk seems to be turning into sprinting as his opponents fail to come out with major challenge before him. Many had thought that with Jeb Bush pulling out of the presidential race, Republicans backing him will unite behind Ben Carson.
Nonetheless it doesnâ€™t seem to be true. On the contrary Donald Trumpâ€™s assertion that any opponent leaving the race means more supporters for him, seems to be backed by some sort of truth. He believes that his opponentsâ€™ supporters will not flock around anyone else, but will come with him.
Even less than great performance last night on CNN in the tenth Republican debate, he is destined to be the biggest beneficiary in the forthcoming Super Tuesday. Hundreds of delegates are on offer and he is expected to bag the largest number of delegates, leaving behind his opponents on the margins.
In the meantime following the Nevada Republican caucuses, the biggest upcoming date on the Republican presidential election calendar is March 1, also known as Super Tuesday or the SEC primary. Thatâ€™s when the GOP will hold 12 nominating contests, the majority of them in the South.
On the other hand it is being said that thereâ€™s not a whole lot of reliable Super Tuesday polling data for either party, for two reasons. One is that pollsters have paid fairly little attention to any of the Super Tuesday states, instead focusing their resources on Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. The other is that Super Tuesday is 10 days away, and thatâ€™s a relative lifetime in the fast-moving world of primary campaigns. Itâ€™s too early to know with any degree of certainty, for instance, how Jeb Bushâ€™s withdrawal from the race will impact polling going forward.
While Marco Rubio is hoping that his votes will get transferred to him, Donald Trump has said it loud and clear that he will get votes whoever leaves the presidential race. While there are some Super Tuesday states where some polling has been done, in others, there hasnâ€™t been a single public poll since before the February 1 Iowa caucus.
