The Super Tuesday of Republicans and Democrats consolidate Trump and the fight between Biden and Sanders

Washington / San Francisco (USA) – The president of the United States, Donald Trump, is on his way to devastate the Republican supermarte, as expected, after winning the victory in several states without having great opponents to fight with, according to media projections.

According to those predictions, Trump won in Texas, Alabama, Vermont, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Arkansas, Maine and Tennesse.

Republicans held this Tuesday primary in thirteen states, in one less than the Democrats, since Virginia has not received the votes of conservatives.

Trump has appeared virtually without opponents, as former lawmaker Joe Walsh suspended his campaign after poor results in Iowa, while former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld is still in the race with hardly any chances.

So far Trump has been winning without hardly opposition. In the cases of Virginia, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina, the Republican primaries or caucuses have been canceled to eliminate any obstacle to the president in the face of his re-election in the November 3 elections.

Trump’s victory was expected in the absence of a serious opponent and the decision of the Republican National Committee to offer his “full support” to the campaign for the re-election of the president.

Given the predictability of the result of the Republican super Tuesday, media attention has focused today on the Democratic Party primaries, where the two big favorites, former US Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders, are fighting an intense battle.

Tonight, the president has dedicated himself to tweet and dedicate messages to aspiring Democrats who are not getting good results, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren and New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

“Elizabeth‘ Pocahontas “Warren, another as Mini Mike (referring to Mike Bloomberg), was the loser of the night. He wasn’t even close to winning his home state, Massachusetts. Well, now you can sit with your husband and have a cold beer, ”the president tweeted.

In another message on that social network, Trump posted a video of Bloomberg in which he was eating and sucking his fingers and said ironically: “Mini Mike, don’t suck your dirty fingers. (It is) unhygienic and dangerous for others and for you. ”

Democratic super Tuesday consolidates the struggle between Biden and Sanders

Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Democratic primary in at least eight states this super Tuesday, while leftist Bernie Sanders took four, including the jackpot of the night: California.

Waiting to know the exact distribution of delegates, the results consolidate the struggle for control of the match between the apparatus represented by Biden and the leftist alternative with Sanders in the lead.

Biden, whose campaign was almost dead just a week ago, resurfaced from the ashes on Saturday with a great victory in South Carolina and this super Tuesday also swept Sanders in the southern states of Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, South Carolina North and Arkansas, in which he had hardly invested resources.

The victories of the former vice president of Barack Obama (2009-2017) were not reduced to the conservative South and also took the states of Minnesota and Massachusetts, on the role prone to Sanders. Biden also leads the scrutiny in Maine and Texas.

Biden’s candidacy was propelled by the events of the last 48 hours, with former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar suspending their campaigns in favor of that of the former vice president, in what has been interpreted as a blow on the table of the device of the game against a divided primary that benefited Sanders.

The senator, on the other hand, confirmed the forecasts that placed him as the big favorite to win the Super Tuesday jackpot, and also emerged victorious in Colorado, Utah and his state, Vermont.

“I have the absolute confidence that we will win the Democratic nomination and that we will defeat the most dangerous president in the history of this country,” Sanders said at a rally in Vermont.

“We can’t beat Trump with the same old policy,” he added, in clear reference to Biden, whom he criticized for supporting the Iraq war and social cuts throughout his political career in Congress.

The former vice president, for his part, celebrated results from Los Angeles that not even the most optimistic forecasts predicted.

“People are talking about a revolution, but we have started a movement,” said the former vice president, referring to the social-democratic “revolution” that Sanders is leading. (March 4, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
