First Super Tuesday Results Are in with Bad News for Bloomberg, Biden Win in VA


The first results of the night on Super Tuesday did not come with much good news for former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who was not able to win either Vermont or Virginia.

It took just minutes for most outlets to call Vermont, the home state of Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Virginia.

And the results were not unexpected: Sanders was projected to win Vermont, while former Vice President Joe Biden was projected to prevail in Virginia.

Biden’s campaign has seen a bump in recent days after his victory in the South Carolina primary.

Do you think Mike Bloomberg's campaign is just about over?

Both former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar then dropped out of the race and endorsed the former vice president.

A total of 14 states were set to cast their ballots on Super Tuesday, with Texas and California widely regarded as the top prizes.

In the RealClearPolitics national polling average, Sanders leads with 26 percent support, followed by Biden at 24.6 percent and Bloomberg at 16.2 percent.
