Sounds like you may have two problems.

Gas should not drip from the carb! When the gas level reaches the set point the float and needle valve should shut the flow off. That is the first thing to fix.

When operating properly you will not see a wet plug. As JMOR said, gasoline vapor looks dry and is not visible.

I would look for a vacuum leak around the intake manifold or carb mounting gasket. Spray around those with your starting fluid or other flammable spray.

I do not see your compression readings as being your problem in starting.
