-- now Bret -- from Fox News does the special report joins us.
By telephone here and Imus in the morning to talk to two of his favorite people addicted commonly.
Very under this -- heavy demand -- So Mitt Romney's southern -- is kind of we wanna talk about that wanna talked about whether Gingrich is gonna drop out through that's Rick Santorum of love.
And maybe a little bit about the jobs report this morning but what about Mitt Romney in the south Alabama Mississippi.
Seem to be pretty big tests once again for him.
They aren't they don't they don't line up particularly well -- Mitt Romney but he is campaigning.
Down there he got the endorsement of the governor of Mississippi.
-- governor Bryant last night give a speech about energy with oil rigs in the background off.
This -- -- -- and you know he's going to try to dig some delegates out.
Alabama -- Mississippi.
And it probably won't put a ton of money down there really that the firewalls and probably campaign -- down the road is Illinois.
That primary -- up for him and that's really where the firewall will be this could be a bumpy you know weaker so I would Kansas Alabama and -- that.
Brad -- -- -- good top T this morning and Newt Gingrich if he does not -- but Mississippi and Alabama do you think that he will get out as being is being talked about.
Really anywhere and everywhere at this point.
Yeah I think he has to win Alabama and Mississippi I think that that's the key I think he's getting close to essentially saying that on the trail.
When he gets on the stump I think it is possible for him to win both of those states.
But it'll be a battle with percent -- You know.
This whole getting you know whether he should be pushed out or not.
The more someone says something like that I think especially when it comes to Newt Gingrich the -- it's going to happen.
And but yet the numbers just don't add up -- this these Tuesday they'll.
Well whatever committee articles written after Super Tuesday about the math being very the delegate -- being very difficult call.
Four Rick Santorum if Gingrich gets out doesn't that change that story dramatically for Santorum.
We don't want it -- actually still has to win 65%.
Of the remaining delegates on the table and -- -- the Romney campaign was -- doing the -- Saying you know.
Santorum would have to win 65% of the delegates Gingrich would have to -- 70% of the remaining delegates.
The trouble where the Romney campaign is that you know there's also a chance that he doesn't make it to 1140 board even in the current environment.
And then you have a situation where does go to -- -- the convention in.
And there are some horse trading for delegates -- Border in the way it's -- we have the delegate count up on our screen right now for 21 Romney won 81 cents storm.
170 for Gingrich the way it's gone so far and I guess I'd and I think I've probably read this in the Romney campaign as well he's one what so for fifty some odd percent of the delegates hasn't it.
So did big switch shifts Santorum were to pull this off.
Right be the only thing that's really.
Kind of interesting is that the associated press and that -- delegate -- that we use right projects.
They say he won this state -- he projects.
The caucus delegates but that the real truth is they have a couple of more.
Stops along the way they have district and county and state conventions -- these delegates actually are appointed.
And some of these candidacies some of these candidates like Ron Paul for example.
Are trying to mobilize their people in each of these smaller conventions.
To be the delegates that.
Step in to the other people who don't have organization at these different of that.
So it's even more complex but not to get in the weeds -- the -- camp feels confident that they're on the right track.
A little more than 200000 jobs expected.
In the jobs report a little more than an hour from now created last month Brett.
The unemployment rate expected to hold above that 8% mark how does the White House played us.
Well listen I think you're going to hear from the president about that the private jobs -- he be.
Slow and steady.
I think -- things that they've set in.
Recent jobs reports.
But as you know -- you have to get above the 300000 mark to really be treading water and I think.
Republicans have a difficult.
Dance here they that they don't wanna be appearing to root against the economy but -- same time they're gonna stay that the president not doing.
Not Bret thanks for calling -- always good and we'll talk to -- OK Peter -- -- we --
