ABSTRACT
Fourteen southern and border states established a same-day presidential primary on 8 March 1988. This analysis shows that Ibis Super Tuesday, in several senses, was less than super. The results turned out to be less satisfying than its Democratic founders preferred but less upsetting than its critics anticipated. Despite Super Tuesday, Iowa and New Hampshire remained dominant in the 1988 presidential primaries. Although eater turnout increased slightly user 1984 and the results contributed mightily toward settling the nomination in the Republican party, Super Tuesday neither settled the Democratic nomination nor gave meaningful momentum to the mare moderate Democratic candidates.
