Where do Democrats and Republicans caucus in Colorado?

There are lots of reasons, but at the root of them all is class-based voting. If they are not officially re-entering the campaign at a later date, they have taken themselves out of the race and are no longer a candidate.

On the same day, Democrats will vote on presidential candidates in Kansas, Louisiana and Nebraska. For the Democratic Party, delegates are reallocated to the remaining candidates.

Aside from giving everyone the chance to rack up serious delegate numbers, Super Tuesday, with so many states taking part in so many different parts of the USA, is a first test of every candidate's national appeal.

So here's where it gets really interesting: In the 2008 Democratic primary, by at least some measures, more people actually voted for Clinton than for Barack Obama.

"Short version", Miller concludes, "a person who comes in here and gets the most votes should win the primary". Once a candidate for each party is chosen in July, the "real" race will begin when one Democrat and one Republican will go head-to-head in the race for (arguably) the most powerful position in the world.

Where do Democrats and Republicans caucus in Colorado?

Yuma County Chairman Jeremy Weathers said Colorado's Republicans made a decision to do away with the preference poll because national leaders installed a system penalizing states that had them at this time of year, in an effort to preserve the traditional early states that have caucuses and primaries - Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina. Despite Cruz's support from the evangelical establishment, Trump ran up a huge margin among working-class evangelicals. Marco Rubio could still get the Republican nomination, according to The New York Times. The number of delegates vary in each state. To be sure, Cruz's claim to evangelical support might possibly have been weakened by the fact that he is the least ethically constrained national political figure in many years.

In Iowa and New Hampshire, Trump had already become the favorite of non-religious, working-class Republicans. This primary-caucus cluster will be a crucial point in the election for each candidate because the large number of delegates could set the stage for a presidential nomination. Second, he contravenes conventional Republican economics with policies that have wide working-class appeal: Opposition to trade deals and to cutting Social Security and Medicare. Could Trump take them all? Anything below a 50 percent victory and the candidate would have to share the 47 proportionally with other candidates in the race. As the share of unionized working-class white men employed in the private sector has declined from roughly half in the mid-20 century to its current level of well under 10 percent, this cohort has moved steadily rightward. Trump is now the clear front-runner on the GOP side of the ticket, so all of the press he receives moving forward is certainly justified.

SC voter Robert Bennett Terry says Democrat Hillary Clinton can beat Republican Donald Trump in the presidential election - but Democrat Bernie Sanders can't. Except that it won't, because, as I've pointed out before, they'll all have fewer employees.

"In the end, Colorado will get so much attention in the general election that it's just going to be insane", says House. In that sense, there was also a sizable chunk of the Democratic electorate that was just waiting for someone like Sanders to come along. On the Democratic side, Clinton has 51 pledged delegates to her name, while Bernie Sanders trails close behind with 36 pledged delegates.

Who can vote in Colorado's caucuses? It's hard to imagine Trump winning any of these.

Donald Trump wins Nevada Republican caucuses: United States networks
When CNN projected Trump would win the race there was a minute-long cheer, which switched to boos when Cruz was mentioned. That means Nevada caucus-goers were significantly angrier than Republicans in earlier primary and caucus states.
