    It's over, now is the time to bow out. I thought they both might have had a better chance to pull it together in the southern states but now I don't. Alabama is a southern state.

    Romney Takes Lead in Alabama According to New Poll - WHNT


    They are both big boys, get it together, stop with the Romney bash, he is going to be our nominee, put their ego's aside for the good of the party and our country and just do it.

    MONTGOMERY, AL—
    Mitt Romney has taken a lead in Alabama just days ahead of the Republican Primary according to a new poll. The poll was released Thursday by the Capital Research Center.

    The new poll is surprising, because a poll conducted by the same firm just a few weeks ago showed Rick Santorum in the lead, however, he has now fallen to third place.

    Romney was crowned long before the primary. Paul, newt adn ricky should all just accept that this isn't a contest based on fair play. The king makers already crowned someone.

    ever since Romney was declared the winner in Iowa... long before Santorum was declared the 'official' winner almost as an afterthought... you knew this contest was not based on fair play....

    I think Santorum needs to fight to the end as it would help Obama.

    So somehow the Republicans in the party were forced to vote for him?

    No one needs to bow out. Let the race continue. Let people have their choice. Romney has nothing to lose with a longer campaign season. Quite the opposite.

    The problem is that whichever drops first will give enormous momentum to the other, and hence a reason to stay in. They're likely to both stay in banking on the brokered convention at this point

    I agree, they should both drop. Mitt's chances of beating Obama drastically increase the sooner this whole thing ends. The problem is there's just too much ego in play for either to admit they've lost.
