Super Tuesday results 2016: how states voted in the Republican and Democratic primaries

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

Donald Trump won seven states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, 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.
