Super Tuesday 2024: Biden and Trump Secure Michigan Primaries in USA

On Tuesday, Joe Biden and Donald Trump emerged victorious in their respective primaries in the state of Michigan. The business tycoon, Trump, also secured himself a win in Missouri on Saturday. He confirmed his win at the convention in Michigan, which assigned an additional 39 delegates to the 12 already allocated on Tuesday in the same state. Trump also participated in the caucuses in Idaho, where he had previously suffered defeat in 2016 at the hands of Texas senator Ted Cruz. Trump’s victories in all party electoral tests have so far earned him 247 delegates, with more expected from Idaho once the count is finalized. He needs another 968 to reach the “magic number” of 1,215, the total needed to secure the nomination at the Republican convention.

Trump’s challenger, Nikki Haley, has only managed to secure 24 delegates. As for Biden, his “magic number” to secure the Democratic nomination is 1,968. Attention now turns to Super Tuesday, on March 5, when sixteen states and one territory will hold their presidential primaries to choose the candidate for the November 5 elections. The Republicans will be fighting for 854 of the 2,429 total delegates, while the Democrats have 1,420 delegates up for grabs. Neither Biden nor Trump are expected to secure their nominations on Tuesday, but they will certainly edge closer to their goal.

Following her disappointing results, Haley, who has been losing major donors, may announce that she is suspending her campaign, leaving Trump as the sole Republican contender. Between today and the 23rd, ahead of Trump’s trial for illegal payments to a porn star scheduled to start in New York on March 25th, there will be nine election days.

This will be followed by North Dakota’s Republican caucuses on March 4th. Super Tuesday falls on March 5th, with Democratic primaries taking place in fourteen states and American Samoa.
