Super Tuesday is the second most important political day of the presidential election year. Only Election Day in November is more important. It’s the biggest playoff day on the way to the political championships. Forty percent of Americans will be voting on Tuesday.

Let’s see how the teams stack up in the various games on tap for tomorrow:

Alabama—52 delegates, not winner take all, but awarded on proportional basis. Looks solid for Biden.

American Samoa—6 delegates, winner take all. Gabbard could surprise here. If not, Sanders.

Arkansas—31 delegates, not winner take all. As in most of the South, Biden territory.

California—415 delegates, not winner take all. Look for a Sanders win, but Biden will gain a decent amount of delegates.

Do you think the Democrats have an electable candidate?

Colorado—67 delegates, not winner take all. Could go to Biden or Sanders. Smart money, Biden.

Democrats Abroad—13 delegates, not winner take all. Biden, as many of these voters work for the government.

Maine—24 delegates, not winner take all. Sanders, he’s the regional favorite.

Massachusetts—91 delegates, not winner take all. Bernie will embarrass Liz Warren in her home state. But not by that much. She may drop out right after.

Minnesota—75 delegates, not winner take all. With Klobuchar’s endorsement of Biden, it makes it interesting. Sanders is strong up there. But let’s see if Amy has any coattails. Our call: Sanders.

North Carolina—110 delegates, not winner take all. Biden. But Bloomberg could do well here.

Oklahoma—37 delegates, not winner take all. One of the most conservative states in the nation, no matter the party. Sanders will not play well here, neither will Bloomberg. Biden.

Tennessee—64 delegates, not winner take all. It’s Southern, it’s Biden.

Texas—Along with California, the big tamales: 228 delegates, not winner take all. Should be Biden, but then they voted for Beto. Biden, but by less than he thinks.

Utah—29 delegates, not winner take all. Biden, probably. But if you’re a Democrat in Utah you’re strange anyway. So, it could get weird there.

Vermont—16 delegates, not winner take all. Winner? The guy from Vermont.

Virginia—99 delegates, not winner take all. Biden, very much like he won South Carolina. Watch Bloomberg here.

Take away? Biden does very well but Bernie can go on to fight some more. Bloomberg not a big factor. Then, on to Florida in two weeks. That will be a fight between Biden and Bloomberg.
