How Will Super Tuesday Change the 2024 Presidential Race?

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Tuesday, voters will go to the polls in 15 states to participate in Republican primaries, and Democrats will go to the polls in 16 states and territories to cast their ballots.

Key Details: On the Republican side, 865 delegates are up for grabs. Former President Donald Trump currently has 244 delegates, compared to former Ambassador Nikki Haley's 43 delegates. Securing the nomination requires 1,215 delegates. On the Democratic side, 1,968 delegates are needed to lock down the nomination for President Joe Biden. He currently has 208 delegates.

Key Quote: “I’ve always said this needs to be competitive. As long as we are competitive, as long as we are showing that there is a place for us, I’m going to continue to fight,” Haley told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

For Context: The term "Super Tuesday" was coined in the mid-1970s to showcase the day with the most primary contests.

How the Media Covered it: The New York Post (Lean Right bias) noted that the only real suspense is whether Trump will sweep all 15 states from Haley. Yahoo News (Lean Left bias) noted how Haley has managed to stay in the race and slow Trump's march toward the nomination, and how she has touted her general election chances against President Biden.
