Not a shock; the reality is if Bama were as extreme as the anti Romney types try to say it is, one of the 2 other conservatives should be able to get 50 percent individually. For them to split up the votes of La, Al, Ms, with Romney also getting considerable delegates is an opportunity lost for them. If they were an NFL team, this would be like kicking a field goal down by 14, with 1 minute to go.

Doing well is 70% voting for someone else now? I hope he does as well in November.

I really wish Romney could win either MS or AL just to shut the naysayers up, but they would still criticize him for something so the delegates we can get will work.

The radical right, dixiegirl7, disses math, and quite frankly, while I hope Romney does extremely well once he leaves the deep south, he doesn't have to. He now has 40% of the required delegates; we can both guess how many NG,RS, and RP will get in states like New York and California, both have huge delegations. He leads #2 by more than 20% of the total delegates required, with an absymal map left for the other candidates.

If this race winds up like this I think its possible for Romney to win the state, but finish 3rd in delegates in the state (because of how the proportioned break out of the statewide vote and winner take most at the CD level breaks out).

You can't count on Tennessee when voting for candidates, knowing that it went to Santorum. Though this confirms with recent polls that showed Gingrich taking a lead in Alabama and Mississippi. It will be great if Gingrich can win both of the states, if not it would be better for Romney to win than Santorum.
