A total of 352 delegates in six states are up for grabs in today's Democratic Party primaries.

Why it matters: It's the first time voters cast ballots since Super Tuesday, which crystallized the contest as a one-on-one race between Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is still competing but has far fewer delegates than her opponents.

  • Polls close at 8 p.m. ET in
    • Michigan, which has 125 delegates.
    • Mississippi, which has 36 delegates.
    • Missouri, which has 68 delegates.
  • Polls will close at 10 p.m. ET
    • Idaho, which has 20 delegates.
    • North Dakota, which has 14 delegates.
  • Polls will close at 11 p.m. ET
    • Washington, which has 89 delegates.

The delegate count so far:

  • Biden: 664 delegates
  • Sanders: 573 delegates
  • Gabbard: 2 delegates

The state of play: Biden is the favorite to win across the board, per FiveThirtyEight's forecast, but several of the races are still tight.

  • FiveThirtyEight predicts Biden will get 3% more votes than Sanders in both of Idaho's congressional districts.
  • The site's polling average has Biden leading Sanders 36.9% to 35.6% in a toss-up in Washington. Voters in Washington are mailing in their ballots.
  • Biden is the slight favorite in North Dakota, per FiveThirtyEight. Forecasters gave him a 63% chance of winning the state to Sanders' 37%.
  • Forecasters expect Biden to take both Mississippi and Missouri.

Of note: Sanders is the clear underdog in polls in Michigan. But the Vermont senator can't be counted out in the state where he pulled off a stunning upset against Hillary Clinton in 2016.

  • "We are going in there with the expectation and hope we will win," Sanders told reporters at a press conference last week.

China's foreign ministry and state media have declared victory after 53 countries joined a statement at the UN Human Rights Council supporting Beijing's new national security law for Hong Kong — compared to 27 who criticized the law.

The big picture: The list of 53 countries was not initially published along with the statement, but has been obtained by Axios. It is made up primarily of autocratic states, including North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Zimbabwe.

CO2 emissions may have peaked, but that's not enough

More analysts are making the case that COVID-19 could be an inflection point for oil use and carbon emissions, but it's hardly one that puts the world on a sustainable ecological path.

Driving the news: The risk advisory firm DNV GL, citing the pandemic's long-term effects on energy consumption, projects in a new analysis that global CO2 emissions "most likely" peaked in 2019.

U.S. economy added 4.8 million jobs in June

Data: Bureau of Labor Statistics; Chart: Axios Visuals

The U.S. economy added 4.8 million jobs last month, while the unemployment rate dropped to 11.1% from 13.3% in May, according to government data released Thursday.

The state of play: While the labor market showed more signs of recovery when the government’s survey period ended in early June, the lag means that more recent developments, like the surge in coronavirus cases and resultant closures in some states, aren't captured in this data.
