Super Tuesday 2016 results by state: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton win big times

“What a Super Tuesday” was how former secretary of state Hillary Clinton opened her victory speech after winning as many as seven state. This was a dream win for the Democratic front runner. NonetMelania Trumpheless it was not a knockout win. Her opponent, the Vermont Senator was still able to win in four states.
But despite his victories, Hillary Clinton’s victories are simply huge as her margin of victories in most states is way bigger than Bernie Sander’s win. Nonetheless Senders’ win are important given Democratic establishment’s known antipathy towards him.

Obama has repeatedly showered praise on Hillary Clinton. A few weeks ago while praising her in an interview he said, “I’ve gotten to know Hillary really well, and she is a good, smart, tough person who cares deeply about this country…Her strengths, which are the fact that she’s extraordinarily experienced – and, you know, wicked smart and knows every policy inside and out…She has been in the public eye for a long time and in a culture in which new is always better…And, you know, you’re always looking at the bright, shiny object that people don’t, haven’t seen before. That’s a disadvantage to her.”

On the other hand Trump has strengthened his position by winning, winning and more winning. He won seven state in a single day. Trump swamped his rivals by piling up seven wins across the nation, demonstrating broad appeal for his anti-establishment movement. Clinton also had a strong night, winning seven states and showing her strength with minorities in the South. Trump won across the conservative South in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia, but also captured more moderate Massachusetts and Vermont.

Nonetheless like Hillary Clinton, he too failed to come out with a knockout win against Ted Cruz, his main rival. Trump’s GOP rivals vowed to fight on. Ted Cruz won his home state of Texas, the biggest single prize of the night, and added Oklahoma and Alaska. And Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finally landed his first win of the 2016 season in the Minnesota Republican caucuses. Trump’s victories suggested that he did not pay a significant price for a controversy that flared in recent days over his initial failure to disavow David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, during a CNN interview, and disputes over his business record and positions on immigration.
