Today is Super Tuesday, the biggest day of the 2016 primary season that will see dozens of U.S. states and 1 territory holding their nominating contests.

Republicans vote in 11 states with 595 delegates up for grabs, nearly 25 percent of the GOP total.

A Republican candidate needs 1,237 delegates to win the Republican primary nominating contests among the 2,340 available.

Trump currently leads in the Republican delegate count with 82 followed by Ted Cruz at 17, Marco Rubio at 16, John Kasich at 6, and Ben Carson with 4.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz will face a critical delegate test in his home state of Texas where 155 delegates are at stake.

A Democratic candidate needs 2,383 delegates to secure the Democratic nomination.

After Clinton’s recent big win in South Carolina, she leads Sanders in the delegate count 91-65 but with the super delegates counted she leads by a much wider margin with 546 compared to Sanders’ 87.
