LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Hundreds of thousands of Oklahoma voters were ‘Feeling the Bern’ and ‘Cruising to Victory’ Tuesday when they headed to the polls.

More than 53,000 voters took advantage of early voting and absentee ballots. In all, nearly 800,000 Oklahomans headed to the polls. Bernie Sanders took the most votes overall with 173,977, and Ted Cruz received the second most votes with 157,910. However, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were the big winners of Super Tuesday.

On the Democrat side of Super Tuesday’s election, Bernie Sanders won Colorado, Oklahoma and Vermont. Hillary Clinton won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Republican voters in Oklahoma felt Ted Cruz was the best choice, as did Texas. Trump won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia.

"This country belongs to all of us, not just the people who look one way, worship one way or even think one way," Clinton said in Miami. "America prospers when we all prosper, America is strong when we are all strong."

"I'm a unifier," Trump said during a press conference in Palm Beach, FL. "I know people will find that hard to believe. Once we get all this finished, I’m going after one person: that’s Hillary Clinton. We have an expanded Republican Party."

"Tomorrow morning, we have a choice," Cruz said. "So long as the field remains divided, Donald Trump's path to the nomination remains more likely and that would be a disaster for Republicans, for conservatives and for the nation."

Even though Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum have dropped out of the race, they were still on the ballot and received thousands of votes between them.
