Most Republicans want all four remaining presidential candidates to stay in the race until the nomination process is finalized, a new Gallup poll finds.

Many supporters of Rick Santorum have called for Newt Gingrich to drop out, leaving primary voters with a clear choice between the former Pennsylvania senator and Mitt Romney, but that option is only supported by 21 percent of those polled.

Instead, 53 percent of GOP supporters want the four-man race to continue until someone clinches the nomination and with it the right to battle President Barack Obama for the White House in November.

One in five of those polled said Gingrich, Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul should all quit the race now, effectively ceding the nomination to Romney.

Gallup’s latest daily tracking poll of likely primary voters has Romney at 32 percent; Santorum at 27 percent; Gingrich at 17 percent and Paul at 12 percent.
