When is Super Tuesday: States voting in 2016 Republican, Democratic Polls in SEC Primary other details

All eyes seem to be fixated at the Super Tuesday. March 1, is going to be very important when it comes to the future of presidential hopefuls in both Republican and Democratic parties. While Democratic nomination fight seems to have become very close between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, when it comes to Republican party Donald Trump is emerging as the top choice.

He has already won three consequent wins in caucus and primary elections after losing the Iowa caucuses with small margin to Ted Cruz. Now as Ted Cruz has been relegated to the third spot behind Marco Rubio, Donald Trump is going very strong.

In the meantime his campaign has received a much needed endorsement from his one time opponent, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. The New Jersey Governor’s backing of the real estate billionaire shows that establishment has also started looking at him as a viable option.

As many as 14 states are up for grabs and presidential hopefuls from both the parties are looking at Super Tuesday as their main chance to grab the nomination from their respective parties.
What is Super Tuesday?

If you want to clear your concept of Super Tuesday, it must be kept in mind that it among the most important days when it comes to the primary election calendar 2016. It is the day when as many as 12 states and one territory hold primaries and caucuses in the race for the Democratic and Republican nomination. It’s so super because more delegates are up for grabs than any other day.

Super Tuesday states names and other details?

Democrats and Republicans: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.

Republicans only: Alaska, North Dakota and Wyoming caucuses.

Democrats only: American Samoa caucus.

When it comes to the chances of the Democratic hopefuls it must be kept in mind that former secretary of state Hillary Clinton has good advantage over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. She has been historically strong here and statistics suggest that and Clinton even beat President Obama eight years ago on Super Tuesday. On the other hand when it comes to Republicans, it’s much more complicated. The Trump Express could be challenged by Cruz (Texas plus evangelical support) or Rubio, who many believe is emerging as the party’s compromise candidate.

Notwithstanding the fact Super Tuesday is very important it must be kept in mind that it has the last word. We have seen that eight years ago despite winning the majority in Super Tuesday, Hillary Clinton went on to lose the nomination. Besides, there are still dozens of primaries and caucuses, including the New Jersey primary on June 7. (Voters in California, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota also go to the polls that day.) It all leads to convention season — that’s when delegates meet this July in Cleveland (Republicans) and Philadelphia (Democrats) and when each party’s candidate officially will be nominated.
