A poll last week from the Chicago Tribune/WGN-TV, showed Gingrich at 12 percent support in the state, while Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum were neck and neck, with Romney at 35 percent and Santorum at 31 percent.

So now Newt is going to give IL to Romney. Gotta love it.

Four points is hardly "neck and neck" particularly since Senator Sanctimonious couldn't get all his paperwork sorted meaning he can't actually capture every delegate he could've won.

We’ll see how Newt getting out of Illinois affects things there. Santorum will pick up most of his vote but not all of it. One thing will happen in addition to Newt’s votes moving around to other candidates when he gets out. There is a 3 to 6 percent inevitable bump that Romney is getting. The more competitive Santorum gets the more that bump erodes. These are basic sheep voters who just want to vote for whoever they think is going to win anyway. Once there is not a “front runner” they scramble and either don’t vote at all or disperse widely across the remaining candidates.
