RealClearPolitics - February GOP Caucuses and Primaries See polls he has a HUGE lead in CO, AZ, ME & MI, with also being in striking distance with MN. For the record none of the candidate should drop out until THEY want to drop out. In reality only 9 states have voted. There are 41 others plus, D.C., and the territories. I hate how important the first few primaries are and how unimportant the middle to late ones are.
