In the Missouri caucus, Trump won the support of all delegates by securing 100 percent of the votes.

The contest between Haley (52) and Trump on ‘Super Tuesday’ (Great Tuesday) on March 5 will be important. Republican primary elections will be held on March 5 in 21 states across the country. ‘Super Tuesday’ is the day of the primary election process to select the presidential candidates of America, when primary and caucus elections are held in most of the states.
