As we saw in Ohio, these races can go long into the night and surprise you in the end. But at the moment, things are not looking great for Mitt Romney in Mississippi. Could he still win? Absolutely. It’s too close to call. But he seems to be underperforming in some key areas and the Mitt-favorable areas are ahead of the curve in terms of reporting. Certainly possible that Santorum wins both Southern primaries tonight. Stay Tuned.
Romney supporters and insiders were high-fiving each other on Twitter early this evening and the early exits showed a good margin for Romney. But now it’s not looking so good.
