Illinois Turning Into Another Solid Showing for Romney

One day closer to the primary event in Illinois tomorrow, however updated polling shows challenger Mitt Romney running off with the lead yet again.  The difference between the two latest polls showed Romney with a 9 point lead advancing into a 15 point lead over night.  Though different polling organizations, the overall average of polls taken since June of this year, give Romney at least a 8.5 point lead over Santorum.  With Gingrich and Paul taking up the rear of the pack and trading blows for a potentially close last place position.  Either way, the crowd at the top appears to be getting more thin as each primary contest passes.

Santorum Takes Alabama and Mississippi

It was a long night in the south land last night and Rick Santorum blew the doors off Alabama and Mississippi and took home a few trophies to prove it.  However, it was not the knock out punch Santorum was looking for with Mitt Romney taking home just a handful more delegates after he himself won Hawaii.  Though, this continues to show that southern voters seem to be hesitant to throw support behind Romney and is beginning to put Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich on ice.
