Trump dominates Super Tuesday, but November vote may hinge on turnout

A battle between weak candidates could soon turn ugly, analysts say

WASHINGTON -- Former President Donald Trump swept up most of the available delegates in 13 out of the 14 states that had declared winners in the Republican presidential primaries on Super Tuesday, and is expected to lock up the nomination as early as March 12.

This will add pressure on his last-standing rival, Nikki Haley, who won in Vermont, to bow out. The victor had yet to be declared in Utah. Incumbent President Joe Biden, running virtually unopposed, swept Democratic primaries, likely setting up a rematch with Trump.
