Super Tuesday 2024 live results: Trump and Biden score wins in multiple states, Haley competitive in Vermont

President Biden and former President Donald Trump each notched a string of resounding victories on Super Tuesday that brought them even closer to a 2024 rematch of their fierce battle in 2020 for the White House.

Biden posted wins in Iowa, North Carolina, Virginia, Vermont, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, Maine, Arkansas, Alabama, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota and Utah, according to the Associated Press, while former President Donald Trump scored victories over former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Maine, Alabama, Massachusetts, Texas, Arkansas, Colorado and Minnesota.

Trump, 77, who was charged with 91 felony counts since leaving the White House, has described his third presidential run in terms of both redemption and of reclaiming a victory he says, without evidence, was stolen from him. Biden, 82, has portrayed his candidacy as a fight to save American democracy, despite the view of many in his own party that he is too old to continue to lead effectively.

Biden is expected to make a clean sweep on Tuesday, despite some Democrats casting ballots for “uncommitted” to protest his handling of the war in Gaza. Haley, Trump’s lone remaining challenger, vowed to compete through Tuesday’s contests, but her future beyond that is uncertain. The former U.N. ambassador has also walked back her pledge to support Trump, should he be the Republican nominee.

In all, voters went to the polls in 16 states and one U.S. territory on Tuesday.

    Who is Jason Palmer? A previously unknown Democrat beats Biden in American Samoa’s Democratic caucus

    Jason Palmer, a self-described entrepreneur with almost no political profile, won the Democratic presidential primary in the U.S. territory of American Samoa on Tuesday night.

    Palmer won 51 of the 91 votes cast in the small island territory to 40 cast for President Biden. Recent posts on his Twitter account suggest he was the rare candidate to campaign in person there.

    According to the Associated Press:

    On his website, Palmer describes himself as a Baltimore resident who has worked for various businesses and nonprofits, often on issues involving technology and education.

    Jeff Jackson, congressman and TikTok star, wins Democratic attorney general primary in N.C.

    Rep. Jeff Jackson, a Democrat and perhaps the biggest TikTok star in Congress, won the Democratic primary for North Carolina attorney general. He’ll face off against the winner of the Republican primary, Rep. Dan Bishop, in November’s general election.

    The 41-year-old former prosecutor announced his candidacy for attorney general in October on TikTok, where he now has 2.5 million followers. The video shows him boxing an opponent — taking punches as well as dealing them.

    On TikTok, he addresses major issues with a calm demeanor. One of his videos, an analysis of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, has more than 29 million views.

    “I think people have come to define the entire category of political communication as either yelling at someone or getting yelled at,” he told Roll Call about his social media strategy in April 2023. “As it turns out, there’s a huge demand for being spoken to in a normal tone of voice.”

    Jackson told the News & Observer in February that his top priority as attorney general would be tackling the opioid epidemic, advocating for addiction treatment for users and prosecuting drug distributors and traffickers.

    Big changes expected for North Carolina’s congressional delegation

    The Associated Press reports:

    North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore won the Republican nomination for Congress in the state’s 14th District on Tuesday, starting what was expected to be a thorough shake-up of the U.S. House delegation.

    The 14th is one of three congressional districts expected to flip from Democrats to Republicans in the November election after the state’s Republican-controlled General Assembly redrew voting maps fashioned by judges for the 2022 elections.

    The new map seems likely to transform a delegation now comprising seven Democrats and seven Republicans to one with 10 Republicans and four Democrats.

    Could Nikki Haley win Vermont tonight? And if she does, will it matter?

    Nikki Haley’s campaign had several Super Tuesday targets. So far, most of them haven’t delivered. In heavily suburban Virginia, where the polls closed first, she lost to Donald Trump clearly and quickly by what looks like about 30 points. In historically moderate Massachusetts, Trump’s winning margin is shaping up to be nearly as big. And results are still pending in Utah, where Mormon voters have long been uneasy with the former president.

    Yet Vermont remains a ray of hope for Haley.

    With roughly half of precincts reporting, only a few hundred votes separate the two candidates. They’ve been trading the lead back and forth all night. Based on the ballots already cast, and the ones that are still outstanding, Haley has a very real chance of winning.

    A victory in Vermont would be her second of the cycle, after Sunday’s sweep in Washington, D.C. But while a Green Mountain State win would represent another nice feather in Haley’s cap, the practical repercussions would be limited.

    For one thing, Vermont has a unique, highly-engaged political culture dominated by New England progressives — who were allowed to vote in the state’s open primary — and old-school, middle-of-the-road Yankee Republicans such as Gov. Phil Scott (who endorsed Haley). Success there doesn’t exactly translate to success in … any other GOP primary.

    And if Haley wins without clearing 50% of the vote, as the current count suggests she might, she would have to split the state’s 17 delegates proportionally with Trump — meaning her victory wouldn’t even do much to narrow the former president’s widening lead. Only by topping 50% can Haley nab all 17 of Vermont’s delegates.

    Trump wins Colorado after Supreme Court returns him to ballot

    One day after the United States Supreme Court unanimously overturned a decision by the Colorado Supreme Court to remove Donald Trump from state ballots, the former president was declared the winner Tuesday in Colorado’s Republican primary.

    The high court ruling effectively ended state challenges to Trump’s candidacy on the grounds that he violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which forbids from office those who have taken an oath to support the Constitution but are later found to have “engaged in insurrection.”

    With 84% of the votes counted, Trump was ahead of Haley in Colorado by roughly 30 points.

    Michigan police investigating possible voter intimidation case

    Police in Michigan are investigating a possible case of voter intimidation after an unknown person put up fake cameras at Plymouth Township’s early voting center, Hometown Life reports.

    At some point during the nine days of early voting in the state that started Feb. 17 and ran until Feb. 25, two nonfunctional cameras were placed outside the Risen Christ Lutheran Church.

    Plymouth Township Police officials are investigating the incident.

    “We’re looking to identify the person who put up these devices to determine exactly why and what were the intentions,” Police Chief James Knittel said.

    Concerns about crime play a major role in Los Angeles election

    Public concern about crime could potentially determine which candidate serves as the district attorney in Los Angeles County, according to the Associated Press.

    Democrat George Gascón, who has survived two recall attempts since being elected in 2020, is up against 11 challengers in Tuesday’s primary. The two candidates with the most votes, regardless of political party, will face off in November’s general election.

    Gascón’s critics highlighted a rise in property crime from 2022 to 2023 and footage of recent brazen robberies at luxury stores to suggest that Los Angeles is becoming increasingly unsafe. Still, violent crime has decreased nearly 1.5% in Los Angeles County and more than 3% in the city itself from 2022 to 2023.

    North Carolina exit polls hint at Trump’s strength across the South

    Trump’s win in North Carolina is likely a sign of things to come as polls close tonight in other southern states.

    In Virginia, one state north, Nikki Haley beat Trump among independents (57% to 41%) and college graduates (56% to 42%), according to preliminary exit polls.

    She still lost statewide by what could be a 30-point margin (or more).

    In North Carolina, however, Haley lost both of those groups, which tend to be her strongest, to Trump: 45% to 49% among independents and 45% to 51% among college graduates.

    Given that North Carolina tends to be less conservative than its neighbors to the south — such Alabama, Arkansas and Texas, which are all voting tonight — those margins will likely shift even further in Trump’s favor. Trump has already won two other southern states tonight, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
