WOW!!!!

This is fantastic!!!!

If Romney wins AL of all states, it really is all over.

While this is encouraging, it's only one poll and I'm concerned that Santorum could win Kansas on Saturday and get momentum going into AL and MS (next Tuesday).

that's really not good for Newt Gingrich at all...

I don't put stock into a poll I've never heard of less then a day after Super Tuesday.

Wait until the legit pollsters come out with numbers.

That is surprising, but given the fluidity of this thing from week to week who knows.

I'll wait to see more polling, but I think it's believable. The deep South is one region where I will concede that, at least at the stage of the game we're in right now, it greatly helps Romney that both Newt and Santorum are polling well there. I know there are a lot of supporters of Newt/Santorum that would make Romney their next choice, but I think that's largely not the case in Alabama

The AEA is Alabama's biggest Teacher's Union. Interesting that they spend those dues on a poll.

I am hoping Gingrich can take Bama and Ms so it throws him back in the race and slows down Romney and leads even closer to a brokered convention.

I can hope that this poll is remotely accurate, but I would doubt it. TN is not quite as conservative as AL, yet you saw how large of a margin Santorum won by last night.

I'm not voting for someone to be my son's little league coach. I'm not voting for a buddy to hang out with on the weekends. I'm not voting for a man to be my pastor. I'm voting for the President of the United States, and I want someone who knows what the heck he's doing. Yes, I think Santorum is a standup good guy, sincere in what he believes, and a fine Christian family man. All good qualities. But if he were applying to be CEO of a company, his paper thin resume wouldn't make it past the first HR cut. People love to slam Obama for lack of experience, but how can they say that RS has any more experience than BO?

Romney is the only electable Republican against Obama. I just wish more of my fellow Southerners could see that.
