Your Daily Roundup for March 3rd
Tell us how you're feeling about Super Tuesday in the comments
Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
It’s Super Tuesday. Here is where the Democratic candidates stand:
- And then there were five. On Monday, Senator Amy Klobuchar suspended her campaign and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden, joining former 2020 candidates Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Texas Representative Beto O’Rourke in the endorsement. Senator Bernie Sanders, the national delegate leader, Senator Elizabeth Warren, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard remain.
- The candidates will face the biggest test of the campaign today when voters in 14 states and one US territory head to the polls for Super Tuesday. Mike Bloomberg will be on the ballot for the first time, and he and the rest of the field will be fighting to reach 15% of the vote in each state to come away with pledged delegates.
- The states at play today are demographically and geographically diverse. We’ll be tracking exit polls to learn more about each candidate’s support.
The last polls before Super Tuesday show a narrowing national race and a close state contests:
A Reuters/Ipsos poll has Sanders out in front, where he leads Biden by 11 Points (*indicates candidate has dropped out of race):
