10 Topics for Super Tuesday
Gabriella Schwarz / March 1, 2016
Super Tuesday is the biggest Election Day of the 2016 cycle thus far.
Voters in a dozen states (and one territory) will make their picks for the nominee of both parties, on a day that historically swings the election. Six hundred sixty one Republican and 865 Democratic delegates will be allocated. None of the states are winner-take-all, which means the delegates will be divided up depending on how much of the vote is won.
Frontrunner Donald Trump is leading significantly in the polls nationally and in most of the states set to vote this week. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in a similar position on the other side of the aisle.
