For those following live results of the Super Tuesday elections, almost all voting will end by 9 p.m. ET. Three states close their polls at 7 p.m. ET – Virginia, Georgia, and Vermont – while another four end at 8 p.m. ET – Oklahoma, Alabama, Tennessee, and Massachusetts. Polls in Arkansas close at 8:30 p.m ET, while Texas, Colorado, and Minnesota will close at 9 p.m. The only contest that will end past the bedtime of the majority of viewers is Alaska, where polls close at 1 a.m. ET.
After the first month of voting, races on both sides of the aisle have attained a critical juncture leading into Tuesday’s voting. Hillary Clinton seems to have held off a late surge by Bernie Sanders, answering to his win in New Hampshire with important victories in Nevada and South Carolina. She has a opportunity to effectively seal the nomination with a strong performance today, while Bernie Sanders is seeking to score some badly needed upsets and keep the race proceeding.
It could be an uphill ascend for Bernie Sanders. FiveThirtyEight gives an in-depth analysis of each state voting, and notes Sanders is at the rear in most competitive races. There are several likely to go ardently to Clinton, while Sanders will in all likelihood trounce Clinton in his home state of Vermont. That leaves Sanders in need of victories – or at least very strong performances – in states like Colorado and Massachusetts.
Sanders has been leading a fundraising push in the days leading up to Super Tuesday, imploring proponents to do all they can to help Sanders grab traction.

Those following live results of Super Tuesday election may likewise see the successful end of the race on the Republican side. Donald Trump has followed his narrow loss in Iowa with a winning streak that bundled resounding victories in New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
He is likely to win the majority of Super Tuesday contests, also, and a solid performance could put Trump steadily in the lead, with little time leftover for the still-fractured party to catch him.

But Super Tuesday’s election results could deliver another peculiar development. As Trump has went on to surge, a movement has commenced growing within the Republican Party to prevent him. Famed strategist Karl Rove is apparently leading party insiders and major donors in a push in opposition to Trump, and quite a few in the party are now speaking out against him publicly.
Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican from Nebraska, stated in a Facebook post that he wold never back Trump, and instead would look for a third-party candidate if he were to face Hillary Clinton.
