Illinois Poll: Romney Way Ahead

Analysts are saying that Illinois’s Tuesday primary is a must-win for Rick Santorum, but new Public Policy Polling numbers show that probably won’t happen. Frontrunner Mitt Romney has a commanding 45 percent–to–30 percent lead over Santorum, according to the survey released Monday, the eve of the vote (it was taken Saturday and Sunday). Both candidates are campaigning today in the state, which has 54 delegates at stake.
