Two New Polls Show Santorum Dropping Below the 20% Delegate Threshold

A pair of polls released Friday predicted bad news for Rick Santorum's presidential campaign. The former United States Senator from Pennsylvania may not win any delegates from Georgia.

YouGov shows Santorum's support at 17%. Landmark Communications says Santorum is pulling 16%.

State Republican Party rules say that a presidential candidate must receive at least 20% of the state-wide vote in order to win any at-large delegates. If the election results mirror the polling results, Santorum might get shut out of Georgia's Republican National Convention delegates completely.
