Nominations Will Not Be Decided on Super Tuesday
"The race for delegates is so close in both parties that it is mathematically impossible for any candidate to lock up the nomination on Feb. 5," reports the AP.

"There will be nearly 1,700 Democratic delegates at stake on Feb. 5, enough to put a candidate well on his or her way to the 2,025 needed to secure the nomination. But even if somehow either Clinton or Obama won every single one of those delegates, it wouldn't be enough."

"There will be more than 1,000 Republican delegates at stake on Feb. 5, enough to give a candidate a substantial boost toward the 1,191 needed to win the nomination -- but only if one man emerges victorious in numerous states."
