The 12 Super Tuesday states are getting their political moment in the sun right now as all the Democratic and Republican candidates have been trying to woo the residents of these states for the past couple of weeks ahead of the primaries on March 1. And while this title of ‘Super’ might relate solely to the upcoming election, as it turns out, when compared to the rest of the country, the economy of the 12 Super Tuesday states has been, well, super.

For example, Super Tuesday states were less affected by the housing crisis when measuring monthly foreclosure sales rates, Trulia reports. Between 2008 and 2012, Super Tuesday states had about half as many foreclosure sales than non-voting states.

Additionally, Super Tuesday states were more likely to add jobs in the recovery and less likely to lose them in the recession, have wages and populations that are growing at a faster rate, and, some Super Tuesday states, such as Texas and Colorado, have seen a significant housing recovery.
