Governor Mitt Romney
New Hampshire: Romney
New Jersey: Romney
New York: Romney
South Carolina: Gingrich
Of the 14 states with recent polls, 9 have a candidate leading who is not named "Romney." One might think that the demise of Cain's candidacy would help Romney, but the decline of the anti-Romney candidate never does.
Although former Speaker Newt Gingrich has a lot of baggage, and has flip-flopped on some issues like Romney, I am not so sure he won't ultimately win the nomination. He appears to have momentum. Let's see if his honesty about the immigration issue brings down his numbers in the days ahead.
Also, don't be surprised if Ron Paul's numbers begin to rise as Cain appears to be leaving the race.
