On Super Tuesday, March 5, 2024, Democrats and Republicans in 15 states and one territory will participate in presidential primaries and caucuses.

This day is significant as an informal benchmark in the nomination process because it offers over a third of all the delegates available in each party, making it a crucial point in the race.

While it is mathematically impossible for either President Biden or former President Donald Trump to secure the nomination on Super Tuesday, the results will play a key role in shaping the narrative and momentum for the rest of the nomination race.

Candidates who perform well on Super Tuesday are likely to gain significant momentum and support heading into the next phase of the campaign.

Super Tuesday is often seen as a turning point in the nomination process, where candidates who have struggled to gain traction can see their fortunes change with strong performances.

Conversely, candidates who were once considered front-runners can see their support wane if they underperform on Super Tuesday. In addition to the delegate count, Super Tuesday also provides valuable insights into the preferences and priorities of voters across a diverse range of states and territories.

Candidates who can appeal to a broad base of voters on Super Tuesday are more likely to be successful in securing their party’s nomination.

Super Tuesday is a critical moment in the presidential nomination process, where the trajectory of the race can be significantly influenced by the outcomes of the contests held on that day.
