Good Riddance?

It seems more and more likely that Rick Santorum really was just the most recent (and final?) Not-Romney in the GOP field. Here’s why:

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, coming off his primary wins in Arizona and Michigan, has jumped to a 16-point lead over Rick Santorum in the battle for the Republican presidential nomination. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters shows Romney with 40% support to 24% for the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania. This is Romney’s biggest lead to date and the highest level of support any GOP candidate has earned in regular surveying of the race.

So, yeah, it’s “Ohio or bust” on Super Tuesday.
