The preliminary results show that Democrats Marianne Williamson and Dean Phillips lagged far behind Biden, each securing only 2% of the votes.

 

With over a quarter of the population in South Carolina being black, it was the state’s black voters who played a significant role in securing Biden’s nomination bid in 2020 by delivering his first victory.
