Can Romney Close the Deal?

Republican voters in ten states will decide their choice for the GOP nominee tomorrow, the so-called "Super Tuesday".  Generally, Super Tuesday has gone a long way towards deciding the nominee; hence the reason states try to schedule their primaries on that day.

This year, it isn't expected to decide the race and may complicate it.  Front-runner Mitt Romney has had trouble winning over conservatives, whose support is vital to strong turnout on Election Day.  Romney has been struggling in Southern states, especially.  Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House, is just hoping for a win.  He has all but said if he doesn't win his home state of Georgia, his campaign is in trouble.

There are 437 delegates at stake Tuesday, a significant portion of the 2,286 total.  Ohio, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Virginia, Massachusetts, Georgia, Idaho, Vermont, North Dakota and Alaska are the 10 states where all the attention will be.
