George Pataki and Rick Santorum should drop out. Their campaigns are going nowhere.
Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee should consider dropping out since there seems to be no path forward for either campaign to do well in Iowa or New Hampshire.
Each candidate we listed on the left has a path forward to continue their campaign if they do well in Iowa and New Hampshire. Doing well means getting in the top 3 in either Iowa or New Hampshire. Ideally you would want to win these states but as long as you get in the top 3 you can continue your campaign.
