GOP Primaries Today In Alabama And Mississippi

Mitt Romney is working to seal his status as the Republican presidential front-runner with a thus-far-elusive victory in the Deep South.

Closely fought primaries in Alabama and Louisiana offer the former Massachusetts governor a key opportunity in a region that has been slow to embrace him. Today's primaries are also poised to render a possible final verdict on Newt Gingrich's Southern-focused candidacy.

With polls showing an unexpectedly tight race in the conservative bellwether states, Romney made a campaign appearance Monday in Alabama -- a clear indication that he was eyeing a potential win there.

Rick Santorum, who has angled to campaign head-to-head with Romney, is pressing the case again that Gingrich should consider stepping aside. He plans to watch returns from Louisiana, which holds its primary later this month.

      Bait and Switch...If the economy cannot be your talking point, then find something else to complain about. Typical GOPer. BTW bring up Muslin next time, that will surely get your cults motor going.

    what is really sad but true, is some actually thought obama would be a leader. Today 27% still think he is....now thats sad after a dismal failure of 3 years. Heck, blaming it on someone else is a true sign you are no leader.

        What liberal polls are you referring to? The ones that tell you what you want to hear or the ones that say he lost months ago?

    "In Alabama and Mississippi – about half still believe he (Obama) is Muslim and about 1 in 4 believes his parents’ interracial marriage should have been illegal, a new poll shows"

      Hmmm, not the brightest amongst the 50 states, so why would this be a surprise. Vote for Newt; a stupid persons idea of what a smart person should look and act like.

        I don't recall President Obama saying that, but I do recall Newt Gingrich making that empty claim, I wonder how many Yaa-hoots actually believed him? Probably all of the Teafarters.
