Washington, Mar 6 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The obvious fact in the race to the White House for the Republican candidates is that whoever comes out tops after the Super Tuesday will have a major boost to going all the way in the race to lead the GOP in the Presidential race in 2012. The race has so far turned out to be a two-horse race between frontrunner Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.

Romney has picked momentum at the right time coming into the Super Tuesday. He has won the last five caucuses and recent polls show that he has caught up with Santorum in the polls in Ohio. Santorum was leading the polls in Ohio with double digits but recent polls leave very little to be chosen between the two candidates.

Americans will go to the polls on the 6tth of November to elect a President. Incumbent President Barack Obama is determine to go for another second term in what will be another historic first for the African American race.
