S. Carolina Poll Out Today - is reporting Public Polling policy is conducting a poll at the present and the first day of data shows Romney ahead by 10 points. The GOP presidential hopefuls battling for conservative supremacy have to hope for a win in S. Carolina on January 21. Romney is on pace to win New Hampshire on Tuesday in a big way. As, I wrote after the Iowa caucuses, it is Romney's to lose at this point. If, one of the other candidates does not knock off Romney in S. Carolina, it is very likely with Romney's money and organization, he could wrap up the Republican nomination on January 31; the date of the Florida primary. Stay Tuned...


Bay Buchanan Endorses Romney -

Fractures in GOP House -
after receiving a public pummeling for their ridiculous position on the payroll tax extension, the fighting among House Republicans has increased.

Senator Mikulski Endorses Edwards in MD Congressional Race -
Democratic Representative Donna Edwards is facing a strong challenge from former Prince George's County state's attorney Glen Ivey in the Democratic primary. has more here.
