Halperin: Romney’s ‘safe, generic’ Iowa campaign leads him to top of poll

Mark Halperin, Time Magazine: “Mitt Romney is running a low-risk campaign. He is doing some interviews, but his stump speech…is about the Olympics. He recites lyrics from patriotic songs; he talks about the president and the economy, but otherwise we’re not talking about policy. He’s not playing for the Tea Party crowd or the social conservative crowd in any way. He’s running a very safe, generic campaign right now, and I think it’s put him in a commanding position. And the other candidates seem to be more interested in fighting each other than taking on Mitt Romney.”
