US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — Former US Vice President Joseph Biden wins the primary elections in the state of Mississippi. This forecast was made on Tuesday by CNN immediately after the closure of polling stations at 20:00 U.S. East Coast.
CNN notes that according to her estimates, Biden “by a wide margin” ahead of his rival – Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders.
As a result of the primary elections in Mississippi, the votes of 36 delegates will be distributed, who at the upcoming National Congress of the Democratic Party will support one candidate or another for the presidential candidate.
According to the results of the “Super Tuesday” last week, when the primaries were held immediately in 14 states and one overseas territory of the USA, Biden won in ten states, Sanders – in four.
Biden will win the primary Democrats held in Missouri. This forecast was presented by the Associated Press.
The delegates are selected for the primaries in Missouri who will support one or another candidate for the US presidential candidate from the party at the upcoming National Democratic Congress. Following the results of the primary elections, 68 delegates will be distributed in the state.
According to CNN, Biden leads the primary elections held in Michigan. According to these data, 49.1% of the participants in the primary elections speak in support of Biden, at which delegates are nominated for the national congress of the Democratic Party, which will name the rival Donald Trump in the November 3 elections. Biden rival – Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders – is supported by 46.2% of the primary elections.
From Michigan to the Congress of the Democratic Party, which will be held July 13-16 in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), 125 delegates are elected. Their votes will be distributed between Sanders and Biden in proportion to the number of those who supported them in the primary elections in this state.
To be nominated as a candidate for the presidency of the United States from the Democratic Party, the applicant needs to enlist the support of a 1991 delegate.
The Tuesday primary elections in Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri and Washington will nominate a total of 338 delegates to the Democratic National Congress, which will name the rival Donald Trump in the November 3 election. In addition, another 14 delegates will be nominated for the congress at meetings of party activists in North Dakota. Meetings of party activists differ from the primary elections in that the former are held by party organizations, and the latter by state authorities.
