So why some historians still support this theory?

Explain the theory, maybe someone knows.

The theory claims after the evacuation of Dacia, latinised population kept on the territory, and later they became the romanians. Archaeological finds, written sources, historical facts, and linguistic sources have already refuted this.

So they are the Thracian/Celt/Sythians/Geto-Dacians?

No, the theory claims only latinised-dacians.

The assumption is that the Romanians are descended from Roman settlers.  More prestige being from Roman stock.  I think that it is believed that people with Latin background, at sometime immigrated into Romanian (Dacian) region in, say, the Middle Ages.  There is a Latin influence, but not (from what I understand) the kind that would have grown up in 100s of years of continuous occupation by Latin educated population.

Another product of the Middle Ages I would say. Rome laid the foundations, but correct me if I'm wrong - After Trajan had invaded Dacia his successor Hadrian handed the territory back except the bits with gold mines in. Therefore Romano-Dacians are not an immediate origin, but result from longer term contact especially since Dacia seems rather less belligerent after the Roman conquest. Also one would have to consider cultural and demographic changes occurring in periods after the Roman.

Baz8903, you might try Eupedia Forum. They are studying everything about DNA in the past ancient and modern. If you join you don't have to be a contributor they invite questions.
I read that the physical features of the Dacians would be dissimilar to the Latinized population. Maybe there are still bloodlines reflecting the more ancient lineage. The whole are around the Danube has been occupied by so many tribes, where do you start? 
It is usually proven true that the ancient bodies entombed in any given place rarely match the bloodlines of those living above ground.
Try Eupedia- smart and friendly folks.
