Presidents: Does the GOP need a new candidate? won the majority of delegates on Super Tuesday, but the former Massachusetts governor didn’t break away from the pack. The contest to determine the GOP nominee is still not over, as we discussed yesterday.

Do the Republicans need a new candidate to enter the fray?
Over four of ten voters (43%) now say that it would be a good thing for someone else to enter the race, according to a new poll by Rasmussen. Just over one third (36%) say the four remaining candidates—Romney, Santorum, Gingrich and Paul—are the best options for the GOP.

Even though Romney did better than his rivals on Tuesday, his favorableness ratings are now similar to Santorum’s. Romney is now viewed favorably by 45% of likely voters, which is a decline from a few months ago. Santorum’s ratings, however, have risen. Now, 43% of voters have a favorable view of him, according to Rasmussen.
