Wisconsin — With just one week until the April 3 Wisconsin presidential primary, the Marquette Law School Poll shows Governor Mitt Romney with a 39 percent to 31 percent lead over Senator Rick Santorum, reversing Santorum’s lead in February polls.
Republicans — Sixty-one percent of Republicans think it’s time for Ron Paul to drop out of the presidential race, and 60% think Newt Gingrich should. Related, Gingrich is curtailing campaign stops — he canceled an N.C. stop this week — and is laying off staff.
Economy — Economic issues, including gas prices, the national debt and unemployment, worry Americans the most.
Big news— The top story last week was the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Twenty-five percent of Americans said they followed that story more closely than the presidential elections (16%) or the economy (15%).
