Voters going to the polls for the GOP primaries in Mississippi and Alabama, like their partisans in other states, were most concerned about the economy and a candidate's ability to defeat President Barack Obama.
The two Dixie primaries give Mitt Romney a chance to solidify his place as the inevitable Republican presidential candidate, while his rivals, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are looking for enough delegates to hang on another week.

Voters and analysts alike will be watching the two states closely Tuesday to learn whether voters in the Deep South choose to go with the most electable candidate, which many say is Romney, or the most conservative, a label Santorum and Gingrich say properly labels them.
