All the Republican madness is heading towards a point of convergence, as the Super Tuesday approaches, where presidential hopefuls, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will have a chance to finish off the other once and for all.

Super Tuesday will not just put an end to the Republican race but will also raise the final Obama challenger to surface. With 10 states to hold contests on Tuesday, Ohio will be the largest battle ground and most desirable state for all the candidates. While former House of Representatives Speaker, Newt Gingrich is aiming for a comeback in his home state of Georgia, Texas Rep. Ron Paul is looking forward to nail his first victory in Alaska. However, both are far behind Santorum and Romney.

Santorum is leading in Oklahoma, but Romney has become the favorite of Virginia, Vermont and his home state of Massachusetts. He’s also hoping to score big in Tennessee, though the completion in the state with Santorum appears to be a tough one. Romney’s Ohio victory will favor his nomination, after months and months of efforts proving himself the best of all conservatives. While Super Tuesday will clear out the picture to a greater extent, some conservative still possess some serious doubt concerning the former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney.

Santorum, on the other hand, is fighting hard to win in Ohio, to maintain his status as the chief Romney rival. While Santorum seeks to raise up last minute doubts about Romney’s healthcare plans saying the fact that Romney’s plan supported the Democrat’s efforts disqualifies his as a true Republican, Romney on the other hand continues to batch Santorum over his votes for abortion rights and planned parenthood which he gave during his office as a senator.

Romney, unlike Santorum, appears to be focusing on bigger issues, especially when it comes to opposing Obama administration. "We need to have a president who understands the economy if we're going to fix the economy. And my understanding of the economy and jobs did not come by reading about it or debating it in a subcommittee meeting," Romney said. "My experience in the economy actually came by living in the economy."

As opposed to Romney, who still grabs a relatively secure position, Santorum needs to recover from the missteps he took after his consecutive three victories in early February. While the candidate is fight hard to make his place, a number of undiplomatic statements regarding separation of church from the state and raising questions on Obama’s faith along with birth control issue have weakened his previous standing.
