As if the US primary elections haven't been strange enough, it's about to go into overdrive with Super Tuesday looming.

Twelve states are set to vote on March 1 -- the biggest single day for presidential candidates to receive delegate support. The day has proved to be a turning point in most presidential election years.

So far Donald Trump has dominated news headlines, social media, late night comedy shows and, of course, the Republican field of candidates, leaving Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Kasich and Ben Carson in his wake.

Meanwhile the Democratic field has Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders almost neck-and-neck in the battle for the party's presidential nomination.

So could Super Tuesday prove pivotal in deciding the Republican and Democratic nominees for president?

But if Super Tuesday doesn't thin out the field of candidates, there are still a number of primaries ahead, including Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri on March 15 and New York on April 19.

And after the exhausting process for each party's nomination, there's still the race to the presidential White House to build up to in November.
