Super Tuesday

Takeaways from Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday just happened and for those of you out there who aren’t familiar with the date, it’s a big deal for the presidential race. The day was one of the first of many that determined where a large amount of delegates were going to pledge their support. Both Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton have yet to secure their respective parties nominations but are well on their way to making it a lot harder for any other candidates.

Trump won seven states compared to Ted Cruz’s three wins and Marco Rubio only winning his lone state of Florida. Clinton beat opponent Bernie Sanders in 7 out of 11 states. The public has learned a lot about the race through the voting process and a few things have become evident to anyone following the campaign.

Trump On Track

Donald Trump is on track to proving he is leading a movement in the GOP. In both Massachusetts and New Hampshire it’s evident he is able to capture the white working class and able to win the evangelical vote in the Bible Belt. Trump is also on his way to inspiring his own movement with a record Republican turnout in Virginia, showing he’s either bringing more people to the Republican party or getting people out of the wood work to start voting and be involved in the process.

Trump believes that he is unifying people and getting them out there to vote. No matter what Trump does it just seems to be getting him more support. In a climate of rapid political correct policies, the working regular people are sick of it and instead latching onto Trump. It’s more of a condition of the people voting for him and supporting him rather than him as a person. He’s taking advantage of this and at this point will probably by the Republican frontrunner.

Sanders & Clinton

As opposed to the last running eight years ago, Clinton is ahead in delegates and a lot of the establishment believes she will be taking the nomination this time away from Bernie. She has been winning a majority of the races and has a large lead when the super delegates are factored into the equation. She doesn’t just have the minority vote behind her but the predominately white vote as well.

Mathematically the race will be most likely determined on March 15th when the next round of delegates is up for grabs. There is going to be Florida, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri that date and that makes up a large amount of delegates. If Clinton was to win this then the odds of a Sanders comeback is way to far off and he’ll most likely drop. But that’s not even on his mind right now. He said that this is the general election and not winner takes all. In terms of just regular delegates he is only trailing behind by a minimal amount and if he surpasses Hilary then he will be able to claim a majority of the super delegates as well. He has been campaigning and receiving donations to outspend Clinton and secure himself the nomination.
