55 3 things to watch on Super Tuesday Romney's big day. He's been the off-and-on frontrunner throughout the race, but a big Super Tuesday could begin an end game toward a sometimes hesitant base coalescing behind Romney. Turnout. It's the biggest dance yet for Republicans, so the number of people who show up at the polls could be an indication of how energized Republicans are now and what that might mean for the fall. Anyone leaving the race? No. Even if Romney doesn't win in Ohio and/or Tennessee, he'll be able to take the podium tonight and point to wins in other states. Expect Santorum to also declare victory and emphasize that he was outspent by Romney in the states he lost. Newt Gingrich will get a big win in Georgia, and is already looking ahead to next week's contests in Alabama and Mississippi. And Ron Paul could finally win his first contest in one of the caucus states.

100 5 things we learned from Super Tuesday 1. Palin leaves door ajar: Palin has been relatively quiet about her future political plans in recent months -- until Tuesday night when she wouldn't rule out a White House run or, gasp, agreeing to be an eleventh-hour consensus candidate if there is an open convention this summer in Tampa. 2. Obama's diversion: On a day Republicans were expected to dominate the political news cycle, Obama held a press conference. Do you remember him? He is the Democrat that one of these Republicans will face in November. Over the past year, Obama has held 100 fundraisers, and his campaign is using this fight for the GOP nomination to organize a general-election ground game. Obama certainly is not going to emerge from a divisive primary bruised, battered and broke. His GOP rival will.

101 5 things we learned from Super Tuesday 3. Santorum's "lack of" organization: While Santorum might have grass-roots support, he is being greatly hurt by not having a full campaign organization in place. Santorum is here -- a leading candidate for the GOP nomination -- yet his campaign has made some very costly mistakes. He ceded Virginia -- where he lives -- and its 46 delegates because he failed to qualify for the ballot. He lost the chance at picking up another 18 delegates in Ohio, because he failed to file full delegate slates. 4. Romney has an Appalachia problem: Romney, a Harvard-educated millionaire, had his first test among Appalachian voters this election cycle and he did not get a passing grade. In the hilly counties along the Ohio River in eastern Tennessee and in north Georgia -- culturally conservative locales where another Harvard grad named Barack Obama was viewed with deep skepticism in 2008 -- Romney lost badly to Santorum, and in some spots, to Gingrich. 5. Newt needs more than Georgia: After his humbling loss to Romney in Florida a month ago, Gingrich eagerly viewed Super Tuesday as the moment to revive his candidacy. His campaign figured it would score wins in delegate-rich conservative states like Georgia, Tennessee and Oklahoma, while also remaining competitive in Ohio. Instead, it won only Georgia -- Gingrich's home state.
