Even after losing last week’s primaries in Mississippi and Alabama, conservative states he needed to revive any shot at the winning the Republican nomination, Newt Gingrich is defying

For his part, Romney attempted to enhance his Web presence by launching a blog through his personal aid, Garrett Jackson. Jackson started tweeting and posting video clips of Mitt on the campaign trail, but most of the videos have failed to make a big impression thus far. The most-viewed (Mitt eating pancakes) has garnered some of its 8,500 clicks from critics deriding Romeny’s Obama leads on Youtube [Screen Shot]

Perhaps that will change when the Republicans finally settle on a candidate. But as they head into Illinois on Tuesday and Louisiana Saturday, the prospect of ending the infighting and focusing on the general election remains distant.

#USelections2012 offers weekly insight into the US Presidential election through a social media lens, tracking candidates as they try to reach 270 electoral votes in 140 characters or less.
