Election News: Super Tuesday

It's Super Tuesday. Confused? You're not alone. Speculation is rife as to what exactly the most significant day in the race to the White House will bring. Luckily, the internet is here to help you through the process:
  • Let's start with the basics. The Telegraph answers the key question, "What is Super Tuesday?"
  • Once you've got that straight, you need to know what's happening when the results start rolling in. Jeff Greenfield, writing for Slate, offers up some useful "Signposts for Super Tuesday"; Walter Shapiro, writing for Salon, points you in the direction of what to look for in the "Super Tuesday Showdown."
  • Not that Super Tuesday is likely to clear things up entirely. Speculation is already beginning about what happens after the votes are counted. Bill Schneider ponders "life after Super Tuesday" for CNN, whilst Nick Timiraos does some "Delegate Math" for the Wall Street Journal.
  • And finally: YouTube has created a site devoted to Super Tuesday: watch videos from voters, delegates and journalists here.
In the spirit of Super Tuesday, we're taking our very own straw poll in the sidebar. Who do you think is going to come out top on Tuesday? Vote now.
