Uitslagen Super Tuesday (3)

By Duncan Mil

Super Tuesday gives Republican and Democratic presidential candidates a chance to win the support of more than 2,500 delegates assigned to 15 states and one U.S. territory.

President Joe Biden scored easy victories in Super Tuesday’s primaries, with clear wins called by The Associated Press.

The only contest Biden lost Tuesday was the Democratic caucus in American Samoa. Biden was defeated by previously unknown candidate Jason Palmer, 51 votes to 40.

Nikki Haley won Vermont, denying Donald Trump a full sweep, but the former president carried other states that might have been favourable to her, such as Virginia, Massachusetts and Maine.

Biden issued a statement warning that Tuesday’s results had left Americans with a clear choice and touting his achievements after beating Trump.

“If Donald Trump returns to the White House, all of this progress is at risk,” Biden said. “He is driven by grievance and grift, focused on his own revenge and retribution, not the American people.”

The latest AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll finds that a majority of Americans don’t think either Biden or Trump has the necessary mental acuity for the job.
