Below are the primary and caucus results from Super Tuesday, with 416 delegates in 10 states at stake.

All eyes were on Ohio, a state that will undoubtedly play a major role in the general election. Mitt Romney won the state, along with the other late night holdouts of Alaska and Idaho.

Projected winners (according to CNN data):

Mitt Romney >Vermont >Virginia (Ron Paul trails in second place by about 46,000 votes, or 18 percent. He and Romney were the only two major candidates on the ballot.) >Massachusetts >Idaho >Ohio >Alaska

Rick Santorum >Oklahoma >Tennessee >North Dakota

Newt Gingrich >Georgia (Gingrich is projected to win his home state by a huge margin.)


Below are the delegate breakdowns, not including superdelegates unless indicated. Different states use different rules, and they can be quite confusing. The upshot is this: Most states use a proportionate allocation of delegates, so candidates have to worry about not only their total number of victories but their percentages as well. A few states give bonuses to the biggest winner, and only one, Vermont, gives all of its delegates to a single candidate.

Winner take all: Vermont (14)

Proportionate (either directly, or by congressional district): Alaska (24), Georgia (73, plus three additional superdelegates to the majority winner), Massachusetts (38), North Dakota (28)

Weird: Idaho (32): Winner takes all, unless he fails to win a majority of county delegates (don’t ask). Otherwise delegates are allocated proportionately. Ohio (63): 48 delegates are divided by congressional district. An additional 15 go to the winner of a majority, or are divided by the major winners of pluralities. Oklahoma (40): Delegates are divided proportionately, except for 25 who go to the majority winner. Tennessee (55): 27 proportionate delegates plus 28 outright for a two-thirds-majority winner or divided among major winners if there’s no majority. Virginia (46): 33 delegates divided by congressional district, with 13 more going to the majority winner. — PZS
