Super Tuesday is today, dated March 3, 2020. It is the most important in the US primaries. The largest number of delegates is on stake today, up for grab. The importance of the day reflects in renewed preparations in the ranks of the Democratic Party that is seeking a moderate candidate. Bernie Sanders has threatened establishment Democrats and moderates as he keeps surging in each poll.
There's not a liberal America and a conservative America - there's the United States of America.
Even in recent polls, he is leading in the Super Tuesday States. Amid this Sanders’ surge, Amy Klobuchar ends her 2020 presidential campaign and endorses Joe Biden. On another occasion, Pete Buttigieg endorses Joe Biden at Dallas rally. It has complicated the contest and now, the biggest poll would be the result on Tuesday evening. It is going to be head to head between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden with an expected surprise from Michael Bloomberg.
