"We may be living in a vastly different world than we were a week ago, but one constant remains: Joe Biden appears well on his way to being the presumptive Democratic nominee.
Right out of the gate on Tuesday night, Biden notched a nearly 40-point win in Florida, the state with the biggest cache of delegates. He followed it up soon after with another resounding win in Illinois and won Arizona shortly after polls closed there.
By the end of the night, Biden had vaulted over the 1,000-delegate threshold (he needs 1,991 to clinch the nomination). It’s a comfortable lead coming pretty early in the calendar. And while it’s too soon to declare him the winner of the primary, it’s difficult to see Sanders making up enough ground to win.
Beyond the election outcome, the impacts of the spreading coronavirus outbreak in the US could be seen even before Tuesday’s primaries got underway. On Monday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine postponed the state’s primary until June 2, unwilling to put poll workers or voters in danger.
Even with the coronavirus, not all states had low turnout. Florida’s primary turnout actually exceeded 2016 levels, with early voting and voting by mail accounting for a significant portion of the total turnout."
