Public Polling Polling is polling both Mississippi & Alabama Saturday (today) and Sunday, and will release the full results sometime tomorrow night.
Tweets from within the last hour:
1) "Mississippi looks like it's between Gingrich and Romney with Santorum falling well back"
2)"Alabama looks like a 3 way tie with maybe slight advantage Romney...but it's just the first round of calls"

With all of Romney’s “yall” gaffs the last 24 hours (and counting) there is NO WAY he’s ahead.
I’m finding PPP to be pretty reliable. I look to their results more than Rassmussen.
An American Research Group poll of 600 likely Republican primary voters in Mississippi has Gingrich leading with 35 percent, followed by Mitt Romney with 31 percent, Rick Santorum with 20 percent and Ron Paul with 7 percent. The poll, conducted via live telephone interviews, was held after Super Tuesday.
An automated Rasmussen poll of 750 likely Republican primary voters in Alabama also showed a near three-way tie, with Gingrich barely ahead with 30 percent of the vote. Rick Santorum had 29 percent, Mitt Romney 28 percent and Ron Paul 7 percent.
Pretty good corroboration, right there.
The truth is most people will never hear about it. Happens every election cycle.
Maybe people voting for who they perceive to be the winner trumps gaffes.
This is what Romney’s been studying, in order to appear Southern:
I hope this is right and Newt takes both AL and MS, but I’m afraid Santorum has enraptured too much of the Church Lady vote and is taking enough of Newt’s tally to give one of these to Romney.
obamney says alabama and mississippi are away games. Hussein dunham says the USA is an away game.
Yep. And not surprised.
Thanks yall !!!!
Romney will do poorly in Texas.
Move afoot to make TX a winner take all, since the delays due to the re-districting lawsuits.
TX Primary looks like set for May 29th.
“I though Alabama and Mississippi were pretty similar ideologically”
They are. Romney trying to “talk grits” in the deep south is going to go over like a lead balloon. We don’t like that kind of stuff down here. My money is on Newt to win both AL and MS.
So long as both Newt & Rick stay in, Romney can win nomination because most states are proportional delegates.
Interesting. Rasmussen appears to be the outlier for Mississippi. That doesn’t spoil his credibility for me. Just shows that it’s all about the sample.
I’m starting to think that Newt & Santorum are beginning to appeal to different brands of voters. If that’s the case, then both staying in may be the best chance for denying Romney a majority of delegates. If both Newt & Santorum get in the neighborhood of 650 delegates, that keep Romney under 900 delegates.
But if, e.g., if Newt drops out, Romeny would roll over Santorum and get over 1,144, with delegates to spare.
“Romney trying to talk grits in the deep south is going to go over like a lead balloon. We dont like that kind of stuff down here. My money is on Newt to win both AL and MS.”
My worry is our own Boss Hogg Republicans. The Trent Lott clones of all ages and stations. You know the kind I mean. I do not trust them not to ballot stuff or otherwise steal the election.
I do wish that someone would present Bishop Willard a stew of possum and gar boiled in burnt coffee and tabasco, and tell him that eating it all is a requirement for true popularity for anyone campaigning in the South. Then watch.
You have no frigging chance of getting he nomineation or ever winning the WH. If Romney wins either Al or MS Tuesday it's going to over!
