I know we all don’t really understand the delegates, and how the nominations always work… But we DO understand the popular vote. So who got the most real votes on SUPER TUESDAY???

Dems
Clinton 48.97 percent (6,967,302)
Obama 48.04 percent (6,835,447)
Difference in terms of actual votes: 131,855
Source: NBC

GOP

McCain: 43.2 percent (3,657,444)
Romney: 35.5 percent (3,001,607)
Huckabee: 21.4 percent (1,809,404)
Source: Calculated using data from NBC

So there you have it! It would have been an even more interesting race to watch it Mitt Romney would not have suspended his race, but that’s the way it goes.
