With his win in the Georgia primary election, President Joe Biden clinched the Democratic Party's nomination for the November election.

According to AP projections, Biden aimed to secure a percentage of over 90% in the Georgia primary election. Additionally, he sought to obtain the majority of votes in the states of Mississippi and Washington, as well as in the territories of the Northern Mariana Islands and among the party's members abroad.

With Tuesday's results, Biden is set to surpass the 1,989 delegates needed to secure the Democratic Party's nomination.

In the rival field, former President Donald Trump also secured a resounding victory in Georgia, and projections indicate his victories in Mississippi, Washington, and Hawaii.

In reality, the remaining GOP primaries are now a mere formality, as Nikki Haley's exit from the race has cleared the path for the former president to participate in a new edition of the election against Biden.
