Across Northern California, supporters of all candidates were watching Super Tuesday's results.

At a Donald Trump watch party in Roseville, campaign volunteer Diana Verba told FOX40 she is now turning her attention to the general election.

"Trump is going to take it all, you know he will be the presidential candidate for the November election, I have no doubt in my mind. I'd like to see a Trump-Kasich run," Verba said.

She believes Trump's success on this Super Tuesday stems from conservative voters being sick of career politicians.

"We the people are tired of the establishment, we're tired of the candidates that they're throwing at us like Rubio and Cruz, we don't want them, we want Donald Trump," Verba told FOX40.

At Simon's Cafe in downtown Sacramento, some at the Young Democrats of Sacramento County watch party believe their party also now has a front runner candidate, Hillary Clinton.

"I think she knows that she really has the support of enough states now to really get excited about this race and start thinking long term for November," said Alyssa Hanou, political director of the Sacramento County Young Democrats.

Hanou helped the Clinton campaign by knocking on doors in Reno before last month's Nevada Democratic Caucus. She said Clinton's speech Tuesday night shows she's getting ready to face Trump in November.

"She looked so happy to see the support from, at that point, five states. It just reaffirmed how much I believe in her sincerity actually," Hanou told FOX40.

But Tristan Brown doesn't believe his candidate, Bernie Sanders, is completely out of the race just yet.

"You might have a technical winner, but they're both walking away with delegates and growing their number up until we get to the finish line at the DNC," Brown said.

At Sacramento State, campus Democrats and Republicans watched the Super Tuesday results side by side. Cruz supporters, like student Alan Absalon, were happy with his victories in Texas and Oklahoma.

"This is going to be a significant momentum for Senator Cruz moving forward," Absalon said.

Meanwhile, Rubio supporter and Sac State student Seth Wilson is starting to lose faith in his candidate.

"Looking at the latest polls in Florida have Donald Trump leading pretty significantly, and it would be really a pretty big embarrassment if Marco (Rubio) was to lose his home state in the primary, so I don't know for sure, (but) I would not be surprised if he dropped out," Wilson said.
