Coming up on Hardball… the battle for Michigan!


We’ve got new polls ahead of next week’s Michigan Primary… and they’re really something to talk about! We’ll report the latest with msnbc Political Analyst Howard Fineman and Fmr. Huckabee Campaign Manager Chip Saltsman.


Did Franklin Graham insinuate that President Obama may be a Muslim on Morning Joe today? And did he purposefully raise questions about Romney’s religion?  msnbc’s Alex Wagner and John Heilemann both sat on the panel with Graham this morning—and they’re here to discuss.


Then: A new Virginia bill would mandate women receive ultrasounds prior to having an abortion. Is this medically necessary, or is it the latest example in an overreach on women’s rights by the GOP? We’ll talk with Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, and with University of Georgia Visiting Professor Cynthia Tucker.


Plus: “Dems warn: Let’s not get cocky.” That’s a new headline on Politico today, in light of rising gas prices and the frail economic recovery. We’ll talk it over with Politico’s Jonathan Martin and the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza.
