Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer all dropped out just before Super Tuesday. And they all quickly publicly endorsed Joe Biden, asking their supporters to vote for him. The result - Joe Biden won Super Tuesday, and he won pretty big, given the bigger picture of the race. 14 states voted on March 3rd which is known as Super Tuesday. Here's how it all went down:
Vermont - Bernie
Virginia - Biden
Alabama - Biden
Maine - too close to call, basically tied between Bernie and Biden
Massachusetts - Biden
Oklahoma - Biden
Texas - Biden
North Carolina - Biden
Arkansas - Biden
Colorado - Bernie
Minnesota - Biden
Tennessee - Biden
Utah - Bernie
California - not official, but should go to Bernie
That's 9 states for Joe Biden. And just 3 for Bernie. 4 for Sanders when you count CA.
And here's all the delegates awarded so far from Super Tuesday (which is what really matters):
Joe Biden - 460
Bernie Sanders - 401
Elizabeth Warren - 39
Michael Bloomberg - 24
The two biggest states, Texas and California have a combined 300 more delegates to give. Something liked a 60/40 split is expected between Bernie and Biden for those. And them some states have some more delegates to give as well which will be more or less split between the two, with maybe Warren and Bloomberg getting a few more.
But the headline is this is now a two person race between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Or said another way, a race between the moderate/establishment and liberal/progressive factions of the Democratic party.
Bloomberg suspended his campaign after Super Tuesday. I expect Warren to follow suit soon.
I say Bernie and Biden will be basically dead heat tied as far as delegates go once all votes are tallied. It will be close anyways. Now that we only have two candidates, who do you think gets to 1,990 delegates first? The support for Biden is wide reaching at this point with the whole party basically lining up behind him. I think if Pete and Amy had dropped out a few weeks ago, Biden would have won Super Tuesday by an even wider margin, but Bernie was helped by early voting.
