BAM and Mississippi are RED states. They always choose the wrong candidate for the presidency. Both states voted to elect and reelect the village idiot for president. They will predictably vote for the losing Republican nominee here, even though he is vastly inferior to the incredible President running the country now. Santorum took both states. So what? Nothing to see here.

Hawaii Repubs went for Romney? Wow! But consider, in order to be able to dine at McDonalds in Hawaii, you must have an income greater than $200,000..

And yet Romney won American Samoa.
I wonder if Mitt will win the Biltmore McDee crowd in Asheville

Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/tight-races-in-alabama-mississippi-mean-delegate-split-for-santorum-gingrich-romney/2012/03/13/gIQADBBiAS_story.html - broken link)

To date, Romney has won 52 percent of the primary and caucus delegates, while Santorum has won 28 percent and Gingrich has won 14 percent.

At their current pace, Santorum and Gingrich won’t come close to catching Romney, but they could extend the primary battle. At Romney’s current pace, he is on track to reach the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the nomination this summer.
Yesterday the totals from AL, MS, HI, and American Samoa primaries/caucuses

Romney: 43
Santorum: 36
Gingrich: 24
Paul: 1

It's time to get behind the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney, and focus on Obama this fall.

I like Colbert's take on it, "The Republican candidates keep it knowledge-free on the Southern campaign trail".

Santorum is SO not fiscally conservative, so I dont know why he is garnering votes from the tea party crowd. I guess it just shows how much Mitt is disliked...

Or how ignorant the vast majority of voters are.

Because he pulls the Jesus and carefully worded bigotry card. In the deep south the far right evangelical loons run rampant.

Today's Tea Party is not truly about fiscal conservatism across the board, they are more about "stop spending money on those people!" Their alignment with Santorum's social conservatism trumps any principles about fiscal policy.
