Santorum Exit Wouldn't Help Gingrich

First Read: "Perhaps the most important number in the NBC-Marist poll was what happens when Santorum is removed from the race. Santorum's vote splits off evenly if he's removed, and Romney has an even WIDER lead over Gingrich, 49% to 33%. So, Gingrich can't make the argument that if conservatives weren't divided he would win. The numbers just don't bear that out. What's really interesting -- Santorum probably could argue that if GINGRICH weren't in the race, he'd have a better chance against Romney. Santorum's image is as good as it's been since the campaign began."
