US Presidential primaries: Here's a list of who won which state


By

Washington: Here is a list of the US states and territories won by each of the five remaining Republican and Democratic presidential candidates in the 2016 White House nominating contests held since 1 February.

Democratic Party 

Thirty-six contests have been held to date, including the primary in Wisconsin on Tuesday.

A total of 2,383 delegates are needed to secure the party's presidential nomination, including the so-called "super-delegates" who have the right to vote for whomever they choose at the nominating convention in July.

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton has a commanding advantage over Senator Bernie Sanders on the super-delegate front.

Republican Party

The GOP has held 34 contests. Six states and territories -- American Samoa, Colorado, Guam, North Dakota, Virgin Islands and Wyoming -- select their delegates without a primary preference vote, but through conventions or party meetings.

Results of the Missouri primary of March 15 have yet to be ratified by state officials. Unofficial results show Trump narrowly ahead there.

A total of 1,237 delegates are needed to secure the presidential nomination. The Republican Party does not use super-delegates.
