Will Deep South primaries deep six a candidate?

Can Alabama and Mississippi do what Super Tuesday failed to do - give the race for the Republican presidential nomination more clarity?

Rick Santorum heads into Tuesday's primaries coming off a big win Saturday in Kansas, where the former senator from Pennsylvania took more than half the vote in that state's caucuses.

For House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who won big in his former home state of Georgia last Tuesday, doing well in the Deep South is crucial to keeping alive his hopes of winning the White House.

And for front-runner Mitt Romney, the strategy seems to be downplaying expectations and hoping for a better than expected finish.
