We’re continuing to get results from Super Tuesday, when 16 Democratic primaries and caucuses took place on the same day.
Former VP Joe Biden absolutely crushed the competition and majorly surpassed expectations with big wins in Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and most recently, the delegate-rich state of Texas.
Sen. Bernie Sanders was completely knocked back on his heels, only winning the relatively small states of Colorado, Utah, and his home state of Vermont.
Right now, Sanders’ last opportunity to run up the score and catch up to Biden is California, the biggest delegate prize of the primary where he currently leads with almost half the vote reporting.
