The one on one showdown between former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) begins Tuesday night.
Six states — Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Idaho and Washington state are up on March 10th, with 352 delegates up for grabs.
Here is the breakdown of the 6 states results:
Awaiting North Dakota Caucus results
As of 3AM ET, the results of North Dakota still hasn’t been called. The state reports it will continue to count overnight.
With 78% of the vote reported, Sanders is leading Biden by 6.1% with a margin of 634 votes . Sanders has 48.5% to Biden 42.4%.
In 2016, Sanders won in a landslide the North Dakota caucus 64.2 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 25.6 percent.
There are 14 delegates at stake in North Dakota, the smallest prize of the night.
Washington State Primary Too Close to Call
According to the Associated Press, it is too early to call Washington state’s Democratic presidential primary.
All votes in Washington state were cast either by mail or by dropping them off in a ballot box.
With 68 percent of the vote counted, Biden and Sanders were tied at 32.7 percent — with Biden ahead by a margin of 60 votes.
89 delegates are up for grabs, the second biggest prize of Mini Super Tuesday.
In 2016, Sanders won the state overwhelmingly in the 2016 Democratic caucuses, 73 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 27 percent.
Sanders suffered a series of defeats, losing Missouri, Mississippi, Idaho and the crucial state of Michigan to Biden, all by huge margins.
Biden Nabs Fourth Win in Idaho
Former Vice President Joe Biden defeated Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Idaho’s primary, flipping another state the Vermont Senator previously won in 2016.
The Associated Press called the race for Biden at 1 AM ET Wednesday. With 73% of the vote reported, Biden had 47.6% of the vote to Sanders’ 41.8%.
Idaho, with 20 delegates up for grabs, one of the smaller delegate prizes of the Democratic contests held a primary for the first time this year instead of caucuses. Sanders won the state overwhelmingly in the 2016 Democratic caucuses, 78 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 21 percent.
Neither Sanders nor Biden campaigned in Idaho. Only one poll, from Data for Progress, was conducted in Idaho showing Biden with a slight lead of 51 percent to Sanders’ 47 percent.
The races in North Dakota and Washington, the two other states holding nominating contests on Mini Super Tuesday, are still too close to call.
Biden beats Sanders in Michigan
A repeat performance of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ surprise 2016 victory in Michigan was not on the cards for 2020.
Former Vice President Joe Biden defeated Sanders (I-VT) in Michigan’s primary, taking the top prize of the night.
Multiple news outlets called the race for Biden shortly after 9 p.m. ET. based on exit poll projections. Shortly after, The Associated Press called Biden the winner of Michigan primary. Biden had 53% of the vote (455,461) with 31% of precincts reporting. Sanders trailed with 41% of the vote (353,361)
The win in Michigan marks his third win of the night.
Exit Polls showed that Biden won the Great Lake state with two-thirds of the vote from black voters, voters 45 or older, moderates and conservatives, and voters who made up their minds this month.
The Vermont senator made Michigan a centerpiece of his strategy on Tuesday, holding a string of events across the state in the days leading up to the primary. Sanders said Michigan was “the most important state for him” in Tuesday’s primary contests.
Sanders won by 22 points in Michigan over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Biden Snags Second Win With Missouri
The former vice president snagged his second win of the night, winning the Show-Me state of Missouri.
The Associated Press projected Biden the winner of Missouri shortly after 8pm ET.
The early win in Missouri is the latest show of strength for Biden in the Southern states. Biden’s momentum from South Carolina and Super Tuesday carried into Missouri. Voters who made up their mind in the last few days or earlier in March voted almost 2 to 1 in favor of Biden.
Four years ago, Sanders went into the contest in Missouri leading Hillary Clinton in polling but ended up narrowly losing to Hillary by just 1,574 votes.
There are 68 pledged delegates at stake in Missouri.
Biden wins Mississippi Democratic Primary
Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Mississippi primary. The race was called shortly after 8pm ET when polls closed using exit polls before any vote count were reported.
There are 36 pledged delegates up for grabs in Mississippi.
Biden had been heavily favored to win the state, due to strong support from African American voters.
The entire Mississippi Democratic caucus has endorsed Biden.
In 2016, Mississippi voted heavily for Hillary Clinton, giving her 83 percent of the vote to only 17 percent for Sanders.
