In this week’s issue of TIME magazine (available to subscribers here), Mark Halperin assesses the state of play in the next bunch of GOP contests.

Halperin: “Romney’s effort to force his rivals out of the race by noting that he will almost certainly have a plurality of the delegates needed for the nomination by the Tampa convention is now deader than Elvis. With Newt Gingrich determined to stay in the race, attracting a portion of the conservative vote, Santorum has to figure out how to beat Romney with a divided anti-Mitt alliance.”
