Yeah, I guess if we forget there are multiple candidates, one might think that.

I am not sure who it would be great for if Gingrich wins Al and MS, but I guess better he than Santorum...yes.

Romney is coming back up in AL and losing some ground in MS, but overall it looks like the two states are a dead heat. Tuesday should be interesting.

Well, I think Newt dropping out would help Romney in the long run. Romney would take ~half of the Newt votes. And Newt will stay in longer if he gets a win.

That would make a difference...in example, the people who only care about spin (Ponderosa)...would now see Romney winning half the vote not a third of the vote. Also there would be less delegates getting split, means Romney makes it to 1144 quicker.

I'd say if Romney can't win it, its better for him to have Santorum win them.
