Romney may have victories in six Super Tuesday states: Ohio, Vermont, Massachusetts, Idaho, Virginia, and Alaska. Is it over for the others?

I don't believe anyone ever really had a chance against Romney. I think he was selected from the start to be the nominee and the others are just in it to add a little drama.

I am glad to see Rick Santorum making a splash. It's a shame he wasn't

Selected by whom? Seems to me that if the people don't agree with Romney being the nominee, if they all went out en masse and voted for other candidates, Romney wouldn't have a chance. I simply don't understand the whole "he was selected" by the powers-that-be (whoever they are).

The voters are voting (according to polls) for who is most likely to beat Obama in the general election. Independents like Romney, so they will make or break the election.

Total Conservative post here, but sums up how I think about many of the candidates ( not all of the views do I agree with, but some)...http://m.boortz.com/weblogs/nealz-nuze/2012/mar/07/ok-some-you-are-really-ticked-me/

I like Gingrich and I agree with what that link says about him being solution oriented. The one thing that stands in the way that I don't like about him is his hot headedness, Heaven forbid but if an event like 9/11 ever happened again I wouldn't want to turn on the news and see his face, There's no softness about him at all. I will be very surprised if Romney does not get the GOP, He's tough but he's a gentle giant too, I think he has the ability to beat Obama!

It's so interesting to hear so many people say they'd love to see Gingrich as President yet no one votes for him because they say he can't beat Obama. I'm going to agree with the poster above and say it's because the media and GOP "leadership" has told everyone he can't win and that Romney can. From very early on Romney was the choice of the media and now people are voting for him based only on the fact he can beat Obama? I find that a ridiculous reason to vote for someone for President.

Seems to me that people should be voting for who they want, not who pundits tell them to. Seems pretty weak-minded if pundits can influence people to that degree.

Uhm, the GOP is in a RACE to win, Why shouldn't I think Romney can "beat" Obama? And I have liked him and his record since 2008, I did not vote for McCain last time.. You might want to remember the race b/w Obama and Hillary for the Dem nod last time, it was close pretty long too, A lot of Hollywood supported Obama and the Kennedys did too, People listened. Remind me what kind of senator record people liked Obama for, Thanks.

But that is the problem-they can and do influence voters. How on earth do you think Rick Santorum suddenly came out of the wood-work? The person who gets elected president is the flavor of the month and
