President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump won the Louisiana primary on Saturday, collecting more delegates after already clinching the nomination of their party.

We also saw Mr. Biden in the Democratic primary in Missouri, the results of which should not be published until next week.

None of the elections left any doubt. Joe Biden and Donald Trump have already beaten their main competitors. But primary elections are still closely watched by insiders who observe turnout and signs of voter protest.

For Mr. Biden, some liberals are showing their anger at Israel's war against Hamas after the militant group's attack on October 7. More than 30,000 people, two-thirds of them women and children, are believed to have been killed by Gaza authorities since the launch of the Israeli offensive. A protest movement launched by Michigan's Arab-American communities has spread to several other states.

As for Mr. Trump, he is the dominant figure in his party and has won a third consecutive Republican nomination. But he is grappling with dissent from people concerned about the immense legal danger he faces or criticism of his tenure in the White House, which ended shortly after the ;January 6 insurrection organized by his supporters and fueled by his false theories of voter fraud.
