Biden crushes Sanders in Florida and IL primaries

Former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, will receive Secret Service protection beginning on Tuesday.

The former vice president's victory is not entirely surprising, although his win was certainly elevated by Sen.

Illinois, Florida and Arizona went ahead, instituting some new safety measures for voters and poll workers.

A string of Biden victories, coupled with the moves by states to postpone their primaries, could place pressure on Sanders to drop out.

Mr Biden is the favourite to become the Democratic candidate who will face President Donald Trump in November.

As many people work from home and as schools and businesses close, the primary has remained in limbo, devoid of in-person rallies.

For Sanders, though, staying in the race at this stage isn't necessarily about winning the nomination. Just one in five said the same of Mr Sanders.

In Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey said state and Democratic Party officials agreed that the primary should go on.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez blasted OH for breeding "more chaos and confusion".

The decision was a reminder that the most elemental act of American democracy - voting - will be severely tested Tuesday as several states hold presidential primaries while also confronting the effect of a global pandemic.

Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland and Louisiana have postponed their scheduled primaries.

Democratic front-runner Joe Biden.

Mel Dockens, a 49-year-old small-business owner, voted in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale and said it was a tough choice.

Sanders, the last Democrat standing between Biden and the nomination, is not planning to drop out.

"It's all about electability", Dockens said. "It's not that I don't trust Bernie Sanders, but I trust (Biden) a little more". Overwhelming majorities in all three states - 80 per cent in Arizona and about 70 per cent in Florida and IL - describe the country's economic system as unfair.

In Illinois, Cook County Clerk Karen A Yarbrough encouraged poll workers to mark space on the floor at polling sites to keep voters a safe distance apart and avoid spreading the virus.

"There should be no circumstance in which we say, because of a crisis - regardless of the crisis - that we stop our electoral government", Tameez said. Many Democrats do not want a repeat of 2016, when they believe Sanders' long and bitter primary battle with Hillary Clinton played a role in her upset loss to Trump.

Sanders started speaking before the polls closed Tuesday and didn't mention the election results, instead sticking to policy while addressing supporters via livestream.

The outbreak feeds into pre-existing concerns about the healthcare system in the US.

He said there's a lot for Sanders to consider, especially whether it "benefit [s] the project of defeating Trump for him to stay in this race simply to make a statement or is in time to consolidate around Biden".

Jim Allen, a spokesman for the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, said Tuesday that the board asked Gov. J.B. Pritzker last week to cancel in-person voting, but the governor refused.

In Florida, the largest state to vote, with 219 delegates at stake, more than 1 million people had already cast Democratic ballots by mail or early in-person voting.
