Super Tuesday 2016 Date

Super Tuesday will take place on March 1 this year and is seen as a vital date in the process of selection for the republican and democratic nomination to the presidency in 2016.

A total of 12 states vote on the republican side and 12 for the democrats.

On the republican side it is essentially a three way race between Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. If the polls prove to be true then Trump will have a very good day and move one more step towards the nomination, however it will be interesting to see if either Cruz or Rubio can win enough delegates in order to be seen as serious challengers to Trump.

As for the democrats Hillary Clinton is still in a powerful position, she is expected to win South Carolina handsomely and already has a large delegate count due to the superdelegates that have pledged their support for her. Sanders momentum has been arrested somewhat after being narrowly edged out in Nevada, it is now or never for his campaign.

See the list of states which vote on Super Tuesday.
