 Hi,am Carl Azuz and today,elections take center stage in CNN Student News,we are not just talking about the ones in the United States,although it is our first story.

Super Tuesday,the single biggest day on the presidential primary calender.419 delegates being awarded based on the results of primaries and caucuses1 in 10 states.Let's run to the list.Georgia,Ohio and Tennessee had the most delegates up for grabs.Voters also went to the polls in Virginia,Vermont,Massachusetts,Oklahoma,North Dakota,Idaho and out in Alaska as well.Here's what we knew,when we produced this program last night.CNN projected that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich would win his home state of Georgia.Former Massachusetts Governor,Mitt Romney was the projected winner in his home state of Massachusetts and also in Virginia and Vermont and CNN projected that former senator Rick Santorum would win in Tennessee.The contests in some other states,like Ohio were too close to call and others,like Alaska were still coming in late last night.
 
 
None of those states had a winner take all contest.Candidates will be awarded delegates based on how many votes they got in each state.Though the results of yesterday's primaries and caucuses could help determine how the race for the Republican party's nomination2 will end up.You can get the latest update and the full results from Super Tuesday on our webpage,go to the spotlight3 section and click on the CNN election center link.
 
 
The economy,especially the unemployment rate is one of the biggest issues in this year's presidential campaign.A lot of Americans have said it will have an impact on how they vote.So we want to look at the economic situation in the ten states holding contests on Super Tuesday.Christine Romans has that breakdown4 for us.
 
 
It's two issues that affect voters most,where you live and how you pay the bills.Let's start with jobs.In 6 of the 10 Super Tuesday states,the unemployment rate today is lower than when the president took office.Alaska,Massachusetts,look at North Dakota 3.3%.Ohio,Tennessee and Vermont,Ohio,the big battle ground state,the rate is down,when the president took office,down from its high of last year,but still an uncomfortable 7.9%,half a million people there are still out of work.Tennessee,the rate is above the national average,8.5% there.Here in Georgia,Ohio,Oklahoma,Virginia candidates can rightfully say that the jobless rate has risen,since Obama stepped into the White House.In Newt Gingrich's home state of Georgia,9.4% was the unemployment at the end of last year and in 2010 the state's jobless rate spiked5 to a all time high of 10.5%.Idaho,Oklahoma and Virginia also have higher rates when the president took office,but in Oklahoma and Virginia,you got 6.3% and 6.1%,that's better than the national average.
 
 
I want to take a look now at housing,because if you are underwater,it means you owe more on the home than the home is worth.Super Tuesday states have some of highest rates of underwater mortgages in the country,I mean take a look at Georgia.33% of home owners in Georgia have a house that's underwater,in Idaho,it's one in four,in Virginia,its 23%,this is according to Core Logic6 and the national rate is 22%.And look at Ohio,that battle ground Ohio,24% of people who have home loans owe more on the house than the house is worth.An interesting thing about Ohio,is one of the reasons why Ohio is almost a proxy7 really for what the GOP nominee8 faces in November.Do voters focus on how bad things got or how they are very slowly,slowly improving?
