The showdown between Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich was supposed to be the big story in Tuesday's GOP contests in Alabama and Mississippi — but polls show Mitt Romney is poised to rewrite the narrative that he can't win in the Deep South.
"I see a real close three-person race," said Richard C. Fording, political science professor at the University of Alabama. "There is a scenario for Romney to win, and I wouldn't be surprised if he did. That would be a big symbolic victory for him. Symbolic in that at least he could claim he won a deep red state in the South."
