  • Welcome to Wednesday's edition of CNN Student News.

  • I'm Carl Azuz at the CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

  • As promised, before yesterdays special edition of our show,

  • we're going in depth now on Super Tuesday.

  • On March 1st, Americans in more than ten states all went to the polls at once.

  • They weren't electing a president.

  • They were helping determine which one Democrat

  • and which one Republican would ultimately appear

  • on the presidential ballot this November.

  • Results from these contests were still coming in

  • when we put this show together.

  • Teachers, for up to the moment info,

  • please head to cnn. com.

  • We're starting with an analysis of the Republican side.

  • As of last night, there were five candidates running to

  • become the Republican nominee.

  • And going into Super Tuesday, businessman Donald Trump

  • was the frontrunner. He'd won in every state but Iowa

  • before yesterday's votes.

  • Now, CNN's John King is doing a bit of math for us.

  • He's looking at a few hypothetical outcomes

  • from yesterday built around Donald Trump's lead so far.

  • So heading into Super Tuesday, nobody is anywhere close

  • to clinching the nomination when it comes to delegates,

  • but momentum does start to matter. And Trump is starting pull away.

  • It's early, you need what, 1, 237 delegates to clinch

  • on the Republican side and nobody's even at 100.

  • If he ran the board, even winning with 30, 33 %, 35 %.

  • If Trump runs the board on Super Tuesday, look at that.

  • He gets close to 350. Again, you need 1230 something.

  • So he'd be pulling away in a dramatic way.

  • You start to get that space.

  • So the challenge is you've gotta not only win some states,

  • but take some delegates away, and that's where it hurts.

  • Even if Ted Cruz could pick up Texas, for example,

  • say Trump comes in second, Rubio third and Kasich fourth.

  • Even there, Trump's still getting some delegates cuz you're splitting it up.

  • So to stop Trump, you can't just win one state or two states.

  • Senator Rubio, like Senator Cruz, needs a win.

  • You can't keep celebrating second place.

  • Say Rubio pulls it out in a state like Virginia.

  • So if we give that one to Rubio, say Trump comes in second,

  • Cruz third, and Kasich fourth, even then, even then, okay,

  • so Cruz took Texas away. Rubio takes a state,

  • maybe it's Virginia away. Let's even say, okay

  • Governor Kasich's been camping out in Massachusetts.

  • So what if he can somehow make that happen there.

  • Even then a couple guys take a little bit away from Trump

  • that's still a lot of Trump and he's still way ahead.

  • Republicans unlike the Democrats are proportional early

  • on and then later on as you get through the calendar

  • you have much more winner take all. And Trump,

  • simply because of the Republican rules where the winner

  • is treated more favorably, you start to pull away and conceivably,

  • voila, that's the Trump convention right there.

  • An analysis of the Democrats is next.

  • There were two of them competing on Super Tuesday

  • and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton,

  • was the front runner going into the vote.

  • She'd won in every state but New Hampshire before yesterday

  • As you saw on that last report, when we say a candidate wins a state,

  • it means he or she will have the most delegates

  • from that state voting to give that winner the party nomination.

  • Back to John King now, for more hypothetical outcomes

  • based on Hillary Clinton's lead so far.

  • The biggest story line for the Democrats heading into Super Tuesday

  • is that Hillary Clinton has stabilized.

  • And the question now is can Bernie Sanders pick the lock if you will,

  • and stop her. So Hillary Clinton goes into Super Tuesday

  • with momentum and that day gives her a huge opportunity

  • to have a huge exclamation point behind her performance.

  • And why is that? Super Tuesday is played out down here.

  • Eight states below that line I just drew vote on Super Tuesday.

  • What makes them special? The deeper the shading the higher the percentage

  • of African Americans in those areas.

  • So if you shrink this down and you look across Texas, in Virginia,

  • some of these other states on Super Tuesday,

  • the large African American population,

  • that has been the key to her success in Nevada and then in South Carolina.

  • If she continues her success there, she's not only racking up states,

  • she's racking up a large number of delegates.

  • If she can do that on Super Tuesday, she's proving to Senator Sanders

  • you cannot beat me in a traditional democratic

  • base which the Clinton campaign hopes.

  • Will get Senator Sanders to back off and say okay,

  • she's likely to win the nomination, I'm more of a protestor,

  • a message candidate. Maybe I should tone down the rhetoric.

  • If Clinton wins them all, this is by a 60- 40 margin, this scenario.

  • If she wins them all, she starts to pull away in the delegate chase

  • because in addition to the 600 pledge delegates

  • there's 445 super delegates so she would be way out here.

  • So what are you looking for? Where does Bernie Sanders on super Tuesday

  • at least slow her down. Well he says he's gonna win Minnesota,

  • so let's give him that for the sake of argument.

  • We assume he'll win his home state of Vermont

  • so we'll give him that for the sake of argument.

  • He says he thinks he can win in Oklahoma,

  • he's been spending a lot of time there, let's do it for the sake of argument.

  • And he also says out in Colorado, which is caucuses,

  • that he thinks he can do well out there.

  • So let's make Bernie Sanders the winner and Hillary Clinton coming in second there.

  • If he wins those four states on Super Tuesday plus

  • what he all ready has in New Hampshire, he would get closer.

  • But remember, she has 445 super delegates on the top of that.

  • So Sanders can slow Hillary Clinton's momentum

  • with those four states but it's not enough to stop her.

  • As you look at this Super Tuesday map,

  • I've given Senator Sanders Oklahoma, Colorado, Minnesota, and Vermont.

  • Secretary Clinton wins the rest. She starts to pull away in the delegates,

  • but because of the Democratic rules, if she wins them all 60- 40, look what happens.

  • We can get all the way through May, all filling in Clinton.

  • This is the finish line, way down here.

  • So she needs to win big and in some cases even bigger than 64.

  • It's not the first time we've announced the north African country of Morocco,

  • but it is the first time we've announced the city of Tangier.

  • Near the Strait of Gibraltar, we welcome the American School of Tangier.

  • Thank you for watching. In eastern Oklahoma there's a town named Warner,

  • and there's where you'll find Warner High School.

  • Hello Eagles. And in eastern Colorado we come to the community of Strasburg.

  • From Hemphill Middle School, the Indians are here.

  • The newspaper industry is not a booming one in the United States.

  • The number of daily papers has steadily decreased since the 1980s.

  • Their advertising revenue, the jobs they offered

  • that's also dropped in recent years.

  • It's not to say there's no future in news it's just moving online.

  • Digital audiences are growing by double digits.

  • Chances are you're watching our show online.

  • People are turning to apps, websites and social media to get informed.

  • It'd be easy to say this is happening everywhere in the world but it'd be wrong.

  • The unique circumstances in the world's biggest democracy

  • have given rise to a boom in newspapers.

  • Crunch time at the Delhi offices of India's number one selling newspaper.

  • As the clock ticks 11 PM The madness begins.

  • Simultaneously across India,

  • some 4 million copies of Dainik Jagran are printed.

  • It's so loud in here and the smell of the ink is incredibly strong

  • but what's happening here is some 15 different editions of Dainik Jagran

  • are being printed here for Delhi and the surrounding areas.

  • While newspaper titles and circulations decline globally

  • with the Internet threatening the future of printed news,

  • in India the industry's actually growing at a rate of 8 to 10 % a year

  • with new editions being launched on a weekly basis.

  • It is often said in India that every 50 kilometers the dialect will change.

  • So every 50, 60 kilometers, there's a separate sub- edition of Dainik Jagran

  • which has local content for that market in the local language.

  • They're catering each edition to small towns like

  • these because this is where India's economy

  • is expanding most and reading newspapers is aspirational.

  • Hardly anyone used to go to school before.

  • Now almost everyone is educated so we all read newspapers.

  • We get to know everything. What's happening in the country,

  • rest of the world, farming, inflation.

  • It's empowering he says. Today,

  • India has almost 100, 000 registered publications.

  • That's more than double what it was a decade ago.

  • And unlike pretty much anywhere else in the world,

  • the future for newspapers here is bright.

  • Off the almost 900 million little population of India,

  • 44 % don't read the newspaper.

  • Could those roughly 400 million leap frog from

  • reading nothing to consuming news online?

  • Perhaps, but with three quarters of the country still

  • lacking Internet access that shift will take time.

  • Until then print away. Serema Unas, CNN New Delhi.

  • Before we go, it ain't over till it's over.

  • A lesson for both teams in the Rhode Island State basketball championship.

  • Protecting their lead in the final seconds,

  • Burrillville High School steals a pass then tosses the ball in the air

  • to run out the clock and then celebrate their supposed win.

  • But there's a hitch. A student from Chariho High School

  • had caught the ball and called time out before the buzzer sounded

  • Then with less than a second to go a pass, a lay- up

  • and a one point victory for Chariho.

  • It was a shot heard around the world,

  • one that no doubt gave the other team a sinking feeling.

  • But there's a silver lining that all of the players can net from this experience.

  • How often does everyone get to feel the thrill of victory

  • and the agony of defeat in the same game.

  • We've run out the clock on CNN Student News.

  • Are we back tomorrow? Of course.
