Super Tuesday Review

Caitlin Warner, Staff Writer

The democratic primary, however, is much more in the air on who will win the nomination. As of March 5 at 8:52AM, Joe Biden is the current frontrunner at 513 delegates, with Bernie Sanders close behind at 442. Elizabeth Warren is far behind at 53, and Tulsi Gabbar is even further behind at one delegate. There are still 282 delegates left in the rest of the states, and counts for Super Tuesday are not yet over. These exact numbers can be found at Politico.com

 

 

 

 The other candidates, Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar have all dropped out of the race and will no longer be running, although they won some delegates. All three of these candidates endorsed Biden, but that does not guarantee their delegates will go to Biden. 

According to the Washington Post, the dropout delegates will become unaffiliated delegates, where they will have their own choice on who to vote for. They do, however, have an obligation to vote in the way that their original candidate wants, which would mean the votes would go to Biden.

Update Friday, March 6 at 8:32AM

Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the race yesterday, and has not yet declared her endorsement. She says that she isn’t going to endorse anyone as of yet. 

The delegate count as of this time is 672 for Joe Biden, 551 for Bernie Sanders, and two for Tulsi Gabbard.
