Super Tuesday: Reaction and results

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton scored sweeping victories on “Super Tuesday”, significantly raising the odds that the New York businessman and the former secretary of state will confront each other in November’s presidential election. We bring the best of the reaction and results on the night. 'An American “Caesarism” has now become flesh. It seems a worryingly real danger today' — Financial Times (@FT) March 1, 2016 #Texas breakdown: @realDonaldTrump is top searched in the majority of counties this week — GoogleTrends (@GoogleTrends) March 1, 2016 Latest despatch from DC bureau chief @DimiSevastopulo: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton started Super Tuesday in a strong position after the Republican and Democratic frontrunners both won their party primaries in Georgia, while Bernie Sanders notched up an early win in Vermont. The Associated Press projected that Mr Trump had won the southern state of Georgia, which is one of 11 Republican states to vote. Mrs Clinton was projected to win the state and Virginia, the southern state that borders Washington DC. From @DimiSevastopulo in Miami: Mr Trump is scheduled to hold a press conference at 9pm at his Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach, about an hours drive north of Miami. Trump will hold press conference at 9pm at his Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Springs. Here's the view from resort — Demetri Sevastopulo (@DimiSevastopulo) March 2, 2016 Sanders reminds his supporters D primaries are not winner takes all as he predicts he will win many hundreds of delegates by end of tonight — Sam Fleming (FT) (@Sam1Fleming) March 2, 2016 True. GOP primaries proportional until Mar 15 when Florida votes. That's why Rubio down in Florida 2nite — Demetri Sevastopulo (@DimiSevastopulo) March 2, 2016 — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 2, 2016 — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 2, 2016 Trump heading for big win. Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee & Massachusetts in the bag. Leading Virginia and Vermont. — Demetri Sevastopulo (@DimiSevastopulo) March 2, 2016 When you see trump winning MA and GA by huge margins you know this race is over. Couldn't find 2 more different states. — Ed Espinoza (@EdEspinoza) March 2, 2016 Most important state for Republicans tonight is Texas which awards 155 delegates. Crucial for Texas senator Ted Cruz to win there. — Demetri Sevastopulo (@DimiSevastopulo) March 2, 2016 Miami-based correspondent John Paul Rathbone takes in the scene at the Rubio rally at a cavernous horse ring, the Ronald Reagan equestrian centre: Courtney Weaver — follow @courtney_ft — has picked up on remarks made by vice president Biden on Donald Trump at a Black History Month reception going on at the same time at the Naval Observatory in Washington tonight: “I want to thank Donald Trump,” Mr Biden told guests, which included US congressmen and celebrities such as the former basketball star Dikembe Mutombo. “The stuff he’s doing, and others, the stuff Cruz is doing. He’s making the American people look in the mirror. And the American people are honest. And they look in the mirror and see what’s looking back at them.” If we’re smart, and we’re lucky, I’m convinced that the American people are prepared over the next decade to gradually deal with institutional racism. On a recent trip to Mexico City, Mr Biden alluded to the rhetoric on the Republican side, saying “I almost feel obliged to apologise”, but didn’t mention Mr Trump by name. "America never stopped being great. We have to make America whole" - Hillary fans start chanting U-S-A! U-S-A! — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 Hillary just repeated a line you’ll hear often until November: “America never stopped being great.”#SuperTuesday — Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) March 2, 2016 "The middle class needs a raise and more good jobs" Hillary says - so far this is a combo of stump speech and speech from SC on Saturday — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 Hillary talks about original teapartiers (the colonial ones). What would they about student debt crisis, she asks — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 So far Clinton has used the phrase "break down barriers" a dozen times and counting — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 Hillary talks about donors the way Bernie would: says there are supporters who've delayed getting a hair cut & given junk food to give $ — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 Wow, giving her website AND text instructions for small donors! Who said @SenSanders hasn't had an influence? #SuperTuesday — David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) March 2, 2016 "I know too many Americans have lost faith in our future" Hillary says referencing anger. — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 Hillary says "like many of you" she finds strength from her Methodist faith — Courtney Weaver (@courtney_ft) March 2, 2016 . @TedCruz wins Texas. Means top field won't narrow which hurts @marcorubio who has yet to win a state anywhere and helps @realDonaldTrump — Demetri Sevastopulo (@DimiSevastopulo) March 2, 2016 Ted Cruz has now won 2 states tonight: Texas and Oklahoma Donald Trump has won 5.#SuperTuesday — Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) March 2, 2016 Tonight is near-perfect optimal for Trump: Cruz stays in, Rubio's out of a job in Nov so nowhere to go and Kasich awaits Ohio. All over. — Edward Luce (@EdwardGLuce) March 2, 2016 #SuperTuesday so far: ✅ Trump: AL, GA, MA, TN, VA ✅ Cruz: OK, TX ✅ Clinton: AL, AR, GA, TN, TX, VA ✅ Sanders: OK, VT — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) March 2, 2016 It is tough to keep up with the range of emotions on Gov. Christie's face during this news conference. Now sad again — Cezary Podkul (@Cezary) March 2, 2016 Christie looks like he's about to faint. — Matthew Garrahan (@MattGarrahan) March 2, 2016 "Move to Canada" searches spike during #SuperTuesday primaries — The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) March 2, 2016 — Dan Scavino (@DanScavino) March 2, 2016 Finally, Alaska: Republicans in the state that has legalised marijuana and elected Sarah Palin as governor appear to have spurned her endorsement of Donald Trump and backed Ted Cruz, based on more than half of the vote being counted
