With 2,353 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton gained around 457 delegates on Super Tuesday, giving her 1,005 delegates, including superdelegates, according to the AP.

Bernie Sanders, who lost heavily in delegate-rich states such as Georgia and Texas, has a total of 373, including 286 won on Tuesday. On the Republican side, where 1,237 delegates are needed to win, Trump now has at least 285 delegates, including 203 won on Super Tuesday, compared to 161 for Ted Cruz and 87 for Marco Rubio.
