For the Democrats, President Joe Biden is the undisputed frontrunner and has no real competition. He is likely to sweep most of the states, even in Minnesota, where one of his challengers is from. Rep. Dean Phillips is trying to take on Biden, but he has little chance of winning. He already lost badly in Michigan, where he was beaten by Marianne Williamson, who had quit the race but came back later.

For the Republicans, former President Donald Trump is the overwhelming favourite and has a huge advantage over his last remaining rival, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Haley has only managed to win Washington DC and has barely gotten any delegates from other states.

Super Tuesday is very important for both parties, as a lot of delegates are on the line. But neither Biden nor Trump will be able to clinch the nomination on March 5, as they will still need more delegates to cross the finish line.

CBS News says that the earliest Trump can seal the deal is March 12, and the earliest Biden can do it is March 19.

How many delegates are there to pocket on Super Tuesday?

865 delegates are available for the Republican candidates. To secure the nomination, a Republican candidate must win at least 1,215 out of the total 2,429 delegates.
