After winning big on Super Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden has taken the lead in the delegate count in the Democratic presidential primaries. Biden is now officially the frontrunner, with Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders trailing him.
Biden has received a wave of endorsements from former Democratic presidential candidates in the last few weeks. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Democratic Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and billionaire Michael Bloomberg all dropped out and immediately endorsed Biden. Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris and Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker also just endorsed Biden. These endorsements have boosted Biden in the polls and will likely help him cement his lead as six more states hold their primaries March 10.
