Coming up on Hardball…


Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers are dropping like flies, and over the weekend and again today he apologized for his verbal attack on Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke. But this story is far from over. We’ll talk about the GOP candidates’ response to Rush’s comments, including Romney’s neither-here-nor-there reply. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and msnbc Political Analyst Michelle Bernard join us tonight.


Next up: NBC Chief White House Correspondent and Political Director Chuck Todd is here with Politico Senior Reporter Jonathan Martin to take us through the latest polls.


Is this drawn-out primary season taking its toll on the GOP candidates? And are Romney’s attacks on the other candidates backfiring on him? We’ll ask Romney supporter Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and msnbc Political analyst David Corn.


Plus: The National Urban League is out with its annual report, “The State of Black America.” Marc Morial, the organization’s President & CEO, and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Eugene Robinson will bring us the report, along with an update on the fight over voter ID laws.
