Chicago - The Republican race for president looks like a two-man contest in Illinois Thursday night.
Mitt Romney is ahead of Rick Santorum among Illinois Republicans, even after Santorums big victories in Alabama and Mississippi on Tuesday. But Santorum is within striking distance for next Tuesday's primary.
An exclusive FOX Chicago News poll found a six point lead for Romney among those likely to vote in the March 20 presidential primary.
Romney had the support of 37 percent on Wednesday. Rick Santorum earned 31 percent of the vote.

This 37-31-14 poll is the epitome of the status quo, and I noticed that's more for Newton than he got in MI and OH. Once Newt wins Cook County, he can disprove that poll.
For years, people have said Perot threw the election to Clinton, but I believe GHWB threw the election as he was super subservient to Clinton; Perot was without any electoral votes, but he probably hurt GHWB in two or three states. But I don’t see anyway to think that Newt’s chances are any better than Perot’s ever were, and he is hurting Santorum by being in the race, particularly in the winner-take-all situations. I don’t think who Newt helps or new Newt hurts means a hoot to Newt.
Correction: I don’t think who Newt helps or who Newt hurts means a hoot to Newt.
These news outlets are killing us with polls out before the candidates even have a chance to campaign there. What are these people basing their ‘votes’ on? I have to think it’s all the chatter because I’m quite sure only a handful have looked at their positions. I kind of miss the debates.
Would be a good idea, but that is unlikely, given that both men have said they are going the distance.
It’s funny how “entrance polls” have become the norm this season. I guess the media thinks they are more accurate than exit polls.
