All eyes are on Super Tuesday where polls indicated that either Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders or Vice President Joe Biden will take home the majority of delegates up for grabs ahead of the Democratic Party's national convention this summer.

Super Tuesday will see 14 states and American Samoa hold contests for the race to become the Democratic Party's nominee in 2020 general election, allocating one-third of Democratic delegates – 1,344 – in a day. FiveThirtyEight forecasts that both Biden and Sanders will each have over 500 delegates following Super Tuesday. Sanders currently leads with 60 delegates and Biden is a close second with 54. To obtain the majority and receive the nomination, a candidate needs 1,991 delegates.

The earliest poll closings will be in Virginia and Vermont at 7 p.m. ET with the final polls closing in California at 11 p.m. ET. Results for all contests can be found at CBS News, CNN, USA Today, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.

State/county elections offices will also post Super Tuesday primary results on their respective websites.

Sanders' biggest haul of delegates will likely come from California, which has by far the most delegates up for grabs at 415. The Vermont senator was primed to take an enormous delegate lead because of his popular support in the state before the recent shake-up in the presidential race. Last week, a UC Berkeley IGS poll of 3,000 likely voters found that Sanders had 34 percent of voter support in the state, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was the only other candidate above the 15 percent threshold necessary to receive delegates with 17 percent. Biden received 8 percent of support.

An Emerson poll of 542 likely voters released Sunday found that Sanders now has 38 percent of voter support in California, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percent. Biden received 21 percent of support, Warren 16 percent and Bloomberg 11 percent.

Biden's decisive victory in South Carolina on Saturday has reinvigorated the former vice president's campaign. Since Saturday, former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar have dropped out of the race and endorsed Biden, turning the primary season into a four-person race between Sanders, Biden, Warren and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

Warren currently has eight delegates from the four previous contests while Bloomberg is making his first appearance on ballots on Super Tuesday.

Super Tuesday has proven to be a litmus test for deciding who the eventual Democratic nominee will be since 1984. The last Super Tuesday Democratic winner was Hillary Clinton, who became the Democratic presidential nominee and ultimately lost to then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 general election.
