This cannot be overstated: The objective in November absolutely is to defeat Barack Obama and begin repairing the damage done by his administration. Oklahoma Republicans may like Santorum the person, and may think Gingrich has the best experience (49 percent said so in this poll), but they realize Romney is the GOP contender most likely and best equipped to give Obama a run for his money.

Our hope is that that's reflected when the primary ballots are counted next week. A victory by Romney in Oklahoma on Super Tuesday would show that this deep red state cares a great deal about social issues, yes, but cares first and foremost about ensuring the economic future of this country.
