New York, US (BBN)-Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump have both won the most states in the biggest day of the race for the US presidential nomination.
Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia were among the states where both triumphed, reports BBC.
Trump was defeated by Ted Cruz in Texas and Oklahoma.
Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders won Oklahoma and his home state of Vermont.
Super Tuesday sees 11 states voting on the biggest single day ahead of the 8 November presidential election.
Clinton has also taken Arkansas and Texas, and Trump has won Massachusetts.
The former secretary of state and real estate mogul entered Super Tuesday as the favourites to win the vast majority of states for their respective parties.
Speaking at a press conference in Florida – where Trump has been campaigning ahead of the state’s vote later this month – the billionaire insisted he had “expanded the Republican party”, referring to higher turnout from a broad demographic in states that have already voted.
Trump described himself as “unifier” who could put internal fighting in the Republican party behind him to focus on a general election race against Clinton.
Trump has stunned the Republican establishment to become the party’s front-runner.
Despite his controversial policies on immigration, the former reality TV star has been consistently polling well above his rivals – Ted Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
Both Senators Cruz and Rubio have ramped up their anti-Trump rhetoric over the past week, in a bid to halt his commanding lead in the race.
The outcome of Super Tuesday will be critical for both candidates to remain the race.
On the Democratic side, Clinton had already secured three wins in the first four early-voting states and has led significantly among blocs of black voters there.
Bernie Sanders has put up an unexpectedly strong challenge against the former secretary of state after his sweeping victory in New Hampshire last month.
The Vermont senator and self-described democratic socialist is hoping to win in several other states on Tuesday such as Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Minnesota.
Addressing cheering supporters at his victory speech in Vermont on Tuesday, Sanders aimed a jibe at the Republican front-runner saying: “We are not going to let the Donald Trumps of the world divide us.”
Clinton also addressed Donald Trump’s rhetoric in her speech, saying: “The stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we’re hearing on the other side has never been lower.”
Voters have been casting their ballots across the country, from Massachusetts and Virginia on the east coast to Texas and all the way to Alaska.
Super Tuesday is pivotal in the presidential nomination race, with nearly a quarter of the 2,472 Republican delegates are up for grabs and some 20 per cent of all delegates for the Democrats.
