Results: Utah Republican and Democratic presidential primaries

  • Utah primary polls close at 10 p.m. ET
  • Trump and Haley are competing for Utah's 40 Republican delegates
  • Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips will be on the Democratic ballot with Biden

(NewsNation) — Decision Desk HQ projects Democratic incumbent President Joe Biden the winner of the Utah Democratic Primary.

Utah voters hit the polls to make their primary presidential picks as over a dozen states held primary elections for Super Tuesday.

Republican voters chose between GOP front-runner former President Donald Trump and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Trump currently has 221 delegates, while Haley has won just 43.

Meanwhile, Biden doesn’t face any viable opponents but rather the “uncommitted” vote, which made up about 14% of the ballots cast in Michigan. This protest vote against Biden shows the growing frustration within his own party over his response to the Israel-Hamas war.

Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips will also appear on the Democratic ballot but poses no real threat to Biden’s campaign with just 8.3% in the latest polls.

Polls in Utah close at 10 p.m. ET. You can track the results of Tuesday’s primary election in the trackers below as results come in:

Both Republicans and Democrats will have Super Tuesday elections in 15 states with delegates for both up for grabs. Utah has 40 Republican delegates to award. In order to win the Republican nomination, Trump needs 1,215 delegates of the 2,429 available. A Democratic candidate needs 1,968 delegates to win.

At the local level, Utah is holding congressional elections later in the year. Voters will elect four U.S. House representatives, one member to the U.S. Senate and a governor and lieutenant governor.
