In other states, Romney was absolutely massacred among voters whose anger at Barack Obama was cultural, personal -- he's never won "birthers" over. That Romney's in contention to win deep South delegates, and maybe win one primary in a split, is... no, I was going to say miraculous, but if it happens it will be a function of Gingrich and Santorum splitting votes.
