Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won Oklahoma’s Democratic primary Tuesday.

FiveThirtyEight’s polling average showed Sanders topping Clinton going into Tuesday,, with about 49 percent versus Clinton’s roughly 43 percent average. Polls closed at 8:00 EST. The state has 38 delegates for the Democratic candidates, and the delegates are awarded proportionally.

For the entirety of Super Tuesday, Republican candidates are fighting for 595 Republican delegates, while Democrats have 1,004 Democratic delegates up for grabs. Republicans have 11 contests and Democrats have 12.

“I think if you’re going to get paid $200,000 for a speech it must be a pretty damned good speech and if it’s such a good speech you got to release the transcripts,” Sanders said in a Oklahoma City campaign rally. “Let everybody see them. In fact, I can’t wait to see it. It has to be an unbelievably great speech.”

A CNN/ORC national poll released Monday reported that Trump’s popularity is higher than ever. The poll found he has the support of 49 percent of Republican voters nationwide. The rest of the pack are far behind, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 16 percent, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 15 percent, Dr. Ben Carson at 10 percent, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 6 percent.

Hillary Clinton has a big lead nationally over Sanders, and is beating him by about 20 points among Democrat voters.
