Biden and Trump Win New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin Primaries

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump won their parties’ respective primaries in four states on Tuesday.

The Details: Despite having already secured their parties’ nominations for the general presidential election this fall, Biden and Trump added delegates to their totals with wins in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. Delaware, which would have also hosted a primary vote on Tuesday, did not hold elections. It canceled its Republican vote after Trump secured the nomination, and never scheduled a Democratic one, as Biden was the only candidate on the ballot.

Down-Ballot: Other notable races that took place included state House runoff elections in Arkansas and Mississippi and referendums on election procedures in Wisconsin.

How The Media Covered It: Associated Press (Lean Left bias) called the vote “largely symbolic.” Washington Examiner (Lean Right bias) framed its coverage around a protest against President Biden where voters were encouraged to vote “uncommitted” or “uninstructed” instead of voting for Biden in order to show discontent with the administration’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war. Newsweek (Center bias) framed its coverage around the percentage of the vote Trump didn’t win in each state.
