Rematch between Trump and Biden, almost a fact after Super Tuesday results – El Sol de México

PALM BEACH. Donald Trump swept the Republican primaries in several states, leaving aside his rival Nikki Haley and securing a rematch with President Joe Biden.

Voters in 15 states and one U.S. territory chose their presidential candidates on Super Tuesday. Trump won every state except Vermont, according to US media projections.

Immigration and the economy are the top concerns of voters in both parties, according to exit polls in California, North Carolina and Virginia.

Most Republican voters in those states said they favor deporting illegal immigrants. Trump, who frequently denigrates immigrants, has promised to mount the largest deportation effort in U.S. history if he is elected.

“The border is a complete catastrophe,” said Katherine Meredith, a 65-year-old housewife who voted for Trump in the California town of Huntington Beach.

Biden, with no adversary within the Democratic ranks because he is the sitting president, was expected to emerge victorious in the Democratic contests, although activists opposed to his strong support for Israel called on Muslim and progressive Americans to cast protest votes.” uncommitted” in Minnesota, as they did before in Michigan.

The president easily won Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina, Virginia, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Iowa.

Trump, who has dominated the Republican campaign despite multiple criminal charges against him, has won all but two of the primaries so far, reducing the crowded field of Republican candidates to two.

Although Trump cannot win enough delegates to formally clinch the nomination after Tuesday, another dominant performance put even more pressure on Haley, a former U.N. ambassador under Trump and former governor of South Carolina, to abandon her candidacy.

Virginia had been one of the states that Haley’s advisers had flagged as an opportunity for an upset because of the larger share of wealthy, college-educated voters who tend to support her over Trump. In Vermont Haley won by an extremely narrow margin.

Tuesday’s votes delivered more than a third of the Republican delegates, and more than 70 percent of the number needed to secure the nomination.

Thus, his hypothetical mathematical nomination may happen on the 12th, where 161 delegates will be distributed in primaries in states such as Georgia (59) or Washington (43). But he will certainly achieve it – barring a major surprise – on the 19th, where 414 delegates will be awarded in the primaries of states such as Florida (125) and Ohio (79).

Trump is scheduled to begin his first criminal trial six days later in New York, where he is accused of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments from a porn star during his 2016 presidential run.

Biden said in an interview on Power 98 FM, a hip-hop and R&B radio station broadcast in Charlotte, North Carolina, that the election was an opportunity to confront “the extreme division and violence that MAGA Republicans they are promoting.”
