Daily US Times, Washington: Super Tuesday 2020 US presidential primary election, Joe Biden will win Virginia’s primary. One of 14 states voting to select a Democratic White House candidate on Super Tuesday.

Bernie Sanders, in the meantime, is projected to win his home state of Vermont, according to CBS, the BBC’s US partner.

Mr Biden, a moderate Democrat, and Mr Sanders, a left-winger, provide starkly completely different visions for America’s future.

They lead the race to anoint a Democrat who will face President Donald Trump, a Republican, in November’s election.

Greater than two-thirds of the delegates wanted to safe the Democratic nomination- 1,357 out of the 1,991 wanted on the party’s convention in July are up for grabs. California and Texas are the day’s largest prizes, with 415 and 228 delegates, respectively.

Super Tuesday comes amid a lot of fast-moving developments for the Democratic Party: Former Vice President Joe Biden received endorsements from former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar, who dropped out of the race just forward of the large election day.

Regardless of Senator Bernie Sanders’s loss to Biden in South Carolina, he stays a frontrunner. His fellow progressive candidate, Senator Elizabeth Warren, is seeking to make up for the lost floor.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s candidacy shall be tested for the first time as he participates in his first voting contest. The fifth Democrat still standing, Tulsi Gabbard, is polling just over 1 % in nationwide polls.

What’s Super Tuesday and the way does it work?

Voters across the USA are getting ready to participate within the biggest day of the 2020 election so far.

More than a year after the first Democratic candidates joined the race to take on Donald Trump, we have now reached Super Tuesday.

By Wednesday, we could have a clearer picture of who the nominee will be.

Democrats throughout the US have been participating in a series of caucuses (basically party conferences, where you vote publicly at the finish) or primaries (secret ballots) to choose their most popular candidate.

Thus far, only 155 delegates have been awarded in 4 states. On Super Tuesday, a massive 1,357 delegates shall be distributed, and 14 states are voting. The two most populous, California and Texas, will participate – the previous for the first time on Tremendous Tuesday.

This is what’s at stake in every state- the smallest to the biggest- with some bonus nuggets of trivia thrown in.
