After tough battles in the south, but the big Illinois win, Mitt Romney continues to hold a national polling lead over Rick Santorum of seven points.
Newt Gingrich is in low double-digits with Ron Paul. Gingrich only has 141 delegates, which is unlikely to grow much. Polls indicate if he got out, his votes would split between Santorum and Romney, which may be his main motivation for staying in the race – revenge. He wants to deny any of those delegates or his future primary votes to Mitt.
Gingrich’s mediocre performance on Super Tuesday has doomed his campaign to, at best, spoiler status. And even that role is unlikely.
