Super Tuesday's Numbers Tell It All

Ad Feedback

WASHINGTON - None of the top five presidential candidates came up empty-handed on Super Tuesday, but some filled their pockets with more states and delegates than others.

Watch for CBN News' David Brody for what Super Tuesday's results mean for all the candidates.

However, the GOP's John McCain took a commanding control on the Republican side, while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are still in a juggling match for the most delegates, as Super Tuesday left no clear victor between the Democratic rivals.

But Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney by no means consider themselves out of the race.

Probably the biggest surprise of the night came from Huckabee, who took more states than many expected.

Another shocker for many was the lack of support for Romney, who was a strong runner-up to McCain before Super Tuesday. He said he has no intention of throwing in the towel.

Here are the states the five leading candidates have won so far:


John McCain: New York, California, Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Arizona, Oklahoma, Missouri

Mike Huckabee: Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, West Virginia

Mitt Romney: Massachusetts, Minnesota, Utah, Montana, Colorado, Alaska, North Dakota


Hillary Clinton: New York, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Missouri, Arizona, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas, American Samoa

Barack Obama: Illinois, Georgia, Delaware, Alabama, Utah, Idaho, Connecticut, Kansas, Minnesota, Colorado, Missouri, Alaska, North Dakota

What's in the Bank?

Each presidential candidate racked up points on Super Tuesday, but what does it all mean for the ultimate price: the party's nomination?

It's all about the delegates.

Take a look at whose banked the most delegates in their Super Tuesday accounts and find out where they stand in the big picture.

For the Republicans, 1,023 delegates from 21 states were at stake on Super Tuesday, while 1,681 delegates were sought after by the Democrats in 22 states, plus American Samoa.

To represent the Republican Party come Nov. 4, the winning candidate will need 1,191 delegates, and the Democratic representative will need to tout 2,025 delegates.
