Earlier, Trump won Virginia, his first Super Tuesday victory, with nearly a two-to-one lead over Haley. He dominated most of the state, except in the heavily Democratic suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Despite Super Tuesday having 16 states and American Samoa participating, Trump needed to win about 90% of the nearly 1,100 delegates at stake to secure the nomination by March 12. The results showed Trump’s consistent wide-margin victories over Haley in previous contests, except for a narrower 11-point win in New Hampshire.

In summary, Super Tuesday, with over 70% of the needed delegates, played a crucial role in deciding the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations. The analysis by the Associated Press indicated that Trump’s lead over Haley was insurmountable based on the initial vote results.
