The results are coming in after Super Tuesday, the biggest day so far in the 2024 race for the White House, and the message is clear – we’re heading for a Biden v Trump rematch.

Voters in 15 states went to the polls on Tuesday to select the Democratic and Republican candidates for the US presidential election on 5 November.

Joe Biden, the current president, was the clear victor in the Democratic race as he overcame long-shot challenges from congressman Dean Phillips and self-help author Marianne Williamson.

Meanwhile Donald Trump, the former president, showed his dominance in the Republican race with large victories over former UN envoy Nikki Haley in every state apart from Vermont. She is expected to drop out of the race later.
