    Conventional wisdom says Santorum should bow out within the next few weeks (and/or by the PA primary, whether or not he wins), if he wants to make a graceful exit and position himself as a strong runner in 2016. To continue to run now will likely not only tarnish his image in the primaries but also in a national election.

    His numbers have sagged tremendously in PA over the last few weeks.

    HARRISBURG, Penn. -- Three weeks before the Pennsylvania Republican primary, a state poll shows Mitt Romney leading Rick Santorum by five percentage points.

    Santorum, who trails Romney by hundreds of delegates, has acknowledged that Pennsylvania is a must-win for his campaign. Santorum represented the state in Congress from 1991-2007.

    Here's the breakdown from the Public Policy Polling survey:


    Mitt Romney: 42

    Rick Santorum: 37

    Ron Paul: 9

    Newt Gingrich: 6

    Last month, Romney polled at just 25 percent to Santorum's 43 percent in Pennsylvania, a positive swing of 17 percentage points for Romney.

    "The momentum in Pennsylvania is moving completely against Rick Santorum," said Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm.

    The survey of 402 likely Republican voters in Pennsylvania has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points...
    note Romney's lead is barely outside the margin for error, but the reality is a 17-point shift over a month is bad news for Santorum in his "home state."

    Okay, so I'm being overly optimistic...!
