Super Tuesday 2016: 12 states are voting. Here are the results so far.

The results are in from all of the 12 states that voted on Super Tuesday.

Donald Trump won seven states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia). Ted Cruz won three states (Alaska, Oklahoma and Texas), and Marco Rubio won one state (Minnesota).

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton won seven states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia) and Bernie Sanders won four states (Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Vermont).

It's not just who wins a state that matters — delegates are key to securing a nomination, and more delegates are at stake Tuesday than on any other day. Even candidates who fail to carry a state can pick up some delegates. And on the Democratic side, superdelegates can decide on their own whom they want to support.
