The Southern Strategy

Well it seems like just about everyone has their eyes focused on the south this weekend. While Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been chasing after every last vote heading into tonight's primary, the Republicans have branched out, with Mike Huckabee looking for some Super Tuesday votes in Alabama and Georgia:
"A quick email from the campaign trail in Florida. Two new polls released today show us in 1st in Georgia and tied for 1st in Alabama with Senator McCain. We are working hard to win these delegate rich, Super Tuesday primary states."
For Romney, Florida is a must win state, and the most recent poll I have shows Romney in striking distance of McCain:

Republican Primary Trial Heat:


John McCain 31

Mitt Romney 28

Rudy Giuliani 15

Mike Huckabee 10

Ron Paul 5

Other 2

Unsure 9

If Romney pulls it out, we've still got a race on our hands. If McCain holds on, he's basically the nominee. Tonight should be a lot of fun...
