Super Tuesday national results: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump win most states

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump each took seven states Super Tuesday, sweeping the competition in their respective political parties. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took four states, Ted Cruz took three and Marco Rubio took one.

However, most of the states weighing in on Super Tuesday are not “winner-take-all” states, meaning candidates that received a decent number of votes also received a some delegates.



Trump won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Virginia and Vermont.

Cruz won Alaska, Oklahoma and Texas.

Rubio won Minnesota.

No states were won by Ohio Gov. John Kasich or neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

This gives Trump a total of 268 delegates, Cruz 142 and Rubio 78.

Because of high placing in Virginia and Massachusetts, Kasich won a few delegates, giving him a total of 24.

A total of 1,237 delegates are needed to win the Republican nomination and there are still many delegates to be won in the coming months.



Clinton won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Sanders won Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Vermont.

After Super Tuesday, Clinton has 984 delegates and Sanders has 347. To win the Democratic nomination, a candidate will need 2,383 delegates.
