Trump continues his streak of victories in Michigan, Missouri and Idaho | outside

to updateDonald Trump continued his streak of victories in the Republican presidential primaries, today, Saturday, by winning the caucuses in Missouri and Idaho. American media reported this. Earlier in the day, Trump had already won a large majority of voters at the Republican Party convention in Michigan.

The former president will win all 54 delegates to the Republican National Convention in Missouri this summer. His party officially announced its victory after counting all the votes on Saturday, saying it had won in all regions. Thus, he obtained 100% of the votes.

NBC and CNN wrote based on their own predictions that the 77-year-old would also get there. NBC reported that after counting about 60 percent of the votes, the former president achieved a result of slightly more than 84 percent. The only remaining competitor within the party, former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, received less than 14% of the votes. In Idaho, Trump can add 32 delegates.

Missouri is located in the middle of the country and has a population of just over six million people. Idaho is located in the northwestern United States and has a population of about two million people. In both states, votes were traditionally cast not at election offices, but at small party meetings known as caucuses.

Primary elections are scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., and North Dakota in the coming days.

Super Tuesday

Next Tuesday is Super Tuesday, when primaries are scheduled to be held in fifteen states, accounting for more than a third of all delegates at once. It remains to be seen how long Nikki Haley, 52, will remain in the race, as she no longer has virtually any chance of beating Trump.

Anyone who wants to become a presidential candidate in the United States must first win a primary within a party, called a “primary.” Candidates are then formally selected during party congresses in the summer. The Republican Party nominating convention is scheduled for mid-July.

The presidential elections themselves will be held in early November. Among Democrats, current President Joe Biden wants to run for another term in office. He has no serious competitors in his party's internal race. Everything currently indicates that Biden and Trump will eventually face each other again.
