Tuesday wrapped up the Alabama and Mississippi Republican Primaries and the big three, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are still going head to head till the finish line.
The winner of both states primaries yesterday was Former Senator Rick Santorum, who many have nicknamed the comeback kid. Santorum and his conversative policy ideals worked their magic down south with Republican voters.
Newt Gingrich came in second place behind Santorum and ironcially Mitt Romney came in third. Although he is technically still in the race Ron Paul’s numbers were not comparable to the big three.
According to reports from NBC News, exit polls from Republican voters in Alabama and Mississippi stated that they believed Romney to be the candidate mostly likely to beat President Obama in November but did not believe that he was conservative enough for their liking.
Voters opinions of which is issues are most important at ballot continues to ebb and flow as, folks down in the delta are saying the state of the economy is their number one priority. As of late candidates have continued the back and forth comments on abortion issues & energy, and those are of interest they do nothing to aid the working class’ financial woes.
The GOP can’t seem to find a favorite, demographically the Republican party is split on who they’d want to be President- we wonder why? With the Illinois primary right around the corner it will be interesting to see who next for the number one spot- will Gingrich come from second this time or maybe even Ron Paul?
