“Super Tuesday”: Biden and Trump win by far, but have to fear the displeasure of their own supporters

A repeat of the last US election is almost certain. But Joe Biden and Donald Trump are both unpopular. The key to election victory in November will be who can appease their own supporters.

Maybe Joe Biden can smile about this defeat. In American Samoa, a US territory in the South Pacific, he lost the local area code. 51 Democrats voted for the little-known entrepreneur Jason Palmer, 40 for Biden. This is the first time since 1980 that an incumbent president has lost a primary election. A flaw, certainly, but not one with serious consequences.
