Status: 08:26 a.m. | Reading time: 4 minutes
Biden, Sanders, Warren, Bloomberg: Which democratic candidate was able to secure the lion’s share of the 415 delegate votes in California, who the thickest disc of the 228 in Texas? Here you can see the winners of the 14 states at a glance.
AIn Super Tuesday, a total of 14 US states voted, including the two heavyweights Texas and California. It was the most important day so far in the race for the Democratic presidential candidate: it was about the votes of more than a third of all delegates who will determine the presidential candidate at the nomination party conference in the summer.
After the first four primaries, the left senator lay Bernie Sanders in the lead. Up until this Tuesday, the 78-year-old was also the leader in national surveys. The “Super Tuesday” changes its clear favorite role: ex-vice president Joe Biden went on election Tuesday with a powerful tailwind. Eliminated applicants Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke had called on their supporters to support the 77-year-old’s candidacy.
This boost contributed Biden decisive victories on Tuesday. He won in one of the major states, Texas, as well as in Virginia, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee. Bernie Sanders won in his home state of Vermont, Colorado and Utah – and is predicted to be on the winning track in the important state of California, where most of the delegate votes can be obtained.
Biden’s most important competitor from the moderate warehouse has only just entered the race: the multi-billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (78) was on the “Super Tuesday” for the first time on the ballot papers. He won American Samoa in the Pacific Territory – and was able to break the 15 percent threshold in several countries after the first projections. Bloomberg will also receive delegates, but overall, his performance is a disappointment.
The left senator Elizabeth Warren (70) and the Congresswoman, who is considered to have no chance Tulsi Gabbard (38) completed the Democratic candidate field. However, according to projections, even in Massachusetts, which she represents as a senator, Warren was only in third place behind Biden and Sanders. And Joe Biden won her home state of Oklohoma. The journey should be over for you.
Vermont (16 delegates)
The Bernie Sanders won several American channels, according to the State of Vermont, which he represents in the US Senate.
