Today is not only Fat Tuesday, it is SUPER TUESDAY! No, it is not Superman’s birthday. It means the big day when 24 different states have primaries or caucuses to elect delegates to the national conventions of the political parties. Those delegates then vote for the person who will become the nominee. For the Democrats, 52 percent of all pledged Democratic Party delegates are at stake. For the Republicans, 41 percent of the total are at stake.
