Poll-itics: Pres. Obama leads Romney nationally, TX GOP no fans of Rick Perry + Bonus VIDEO: WillardSpeak


The DNC is putting out some good videos these days. Why, here's one now!

[A]t the South Carolina republican debate hosted by Fox, Mitt Romney couldn't give a straight answer on anything. John Roberts from Fox breaks down the twitter poll that shows Romney dodging questions on tax returns to superPACs.

And just because you've been so good, here's some upbeat news, or as I like to call it, WillardFailWatch. Via Taegan:

Obama now leads Romney 49% to 44% nationally.

Key finding: ... Over the last month Romney's seen his negatives with independents rise from 46% to 54%, suggesting that the things he has to say and do to win the Republican nomination aren't necessarily helping him for the general."

And because some of you have been kind enough to donate to us, here's a bonus PerryFail:

Mitt Romney leads among Republican voters in Perry's home state with 24%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 23%, Perry at 18%, Rick Santorum at 15% and Ron Paul at 12%.
