The United States is gearing up to vote in presidential primaries
The United States is gearing up to vote in presidential primaries and caucuses in 24 states in what is being dubbed "Super Duper Tuesday."

In the Democrat nomination race, involving 22 states, Senator Barack Obama said he expected rival and former first lady Hilary Clinton to take the lead, but predicted the battle would run until March or April.

Clinton currently has the support of 232 delegates and Obama - 158 with Tuesday's primaries choosing 1,681 delegates with 2,025 required for nomination as Democrat candidate in presidential elections next fall.

Clinton's campaign manager echoed Senator Obama's views saying: "The nominating battle is likely going to continue well past [today's] voting, past the primaries of March 4 and maybe even beyond to Pennsylvania [April 22]," Howard Wolfson said.

In Republican primaries, front runner, Arizona senator John McCain reported he was "guardedly confident" ahead of the crucial campaign in 21 states, but rival Senator Mitt Romney said he was "optimistic" and pledged to continue the campaign.

With more than 1,000 delegates in Tuesday's primaries and only 1,191 required for the party presidential nomination, 71-year old McCain has a real chance to secure the vote.
