Sanders projected to win Utah Democratic primary

Sanders projected to win Utah Democratic primary

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachesetts also has much at state on Super Tuesday. Sanders handily won his home state of Vermont and later racked up wins in Colorado and Utah, Fox News projects.

Exit polls from both North Carolina and Virginia showed Biden winning 63 percent of black voters. Biden has been allocated 16 of a possible 99 delegates. Due to heavy demand on the page early Tuesday, the Secretary of State's website was temporarily redirecting some to an external site for finding nearby polling places.

A candidate must have at least 1,991 delegates to win the Democratic nomination.

Bloomberg has only clinched a win in the U.S. Pacific territory of American Samoa, according to U.S. media projections.

The former vice president, who had been lagging in polls, won the SC primary on Saturday with half the vote and has garnered more than 100 endorsements from Democratic Party officials at every level. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent $13 million in advertisements in Minnesota and walked away with zero delegates.

That was before Biden's resurgence in SC and the rapid realignment of Democrats behind him. Two of Bloomberg's former Democratic rivals, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg, dropped out of the race.

His Super Tuesday victory lap - which liberal pundits quickly dubbed #JoeMentum - was somewhat tempered by Sen. Buttigieg and Klobuchar threw their support behind Biden on Monday.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 70, another lawmaker from the party's so-called progressive wing, was also struggling, with projections showing she even failed to take her home state of MA. All three will pick up delegates because they won 15% of the vote. On Tuesday, he called the results a "complete destruction" of Bloomberg's reputation - and on Wednesday, after Bloomberg dropped out, Trump gloated that "sometimes you just don't have what it takes".

The ultimate nominee must claim 1,991 delegates, which is a majority of the 3,979 pledged delegates available this primary season. They endorsed Biden as the moderate alternative to Vermont Sen.

Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to call Biden's strong Super Tuesday showing "a ideal storm" and amplify his long-running argument that the Democratic Party would move to stop Sanders from winning the nomination.

Election forecaster FiveThirtyEight now projects that Biden has the best chance to win the most delegates in the primary cycle, though it also suggests that no candidate will win more than half of the delegates needed to secure the nomination ahead of the convention.

Across the Super Tuesday states, there were early questions about Sanders' claims that he is growing his support from his failed 2016 presidential bid. Though she saw a bump in polls after strong debate performances last month, the senator is not expected to be competitive in many places outside her home state of MA.
