New polls out this morning confirm that Rick Santorum is the new GOP frontrunner - and he’s giving Mitt Romney a run for his money in his home state of Michigan. It’s an amazing change in fortune, but will it last? If the past is any indication, the Romney Super PAC will begin an aggressive spending campaign to undercut Santorum’s lead.
Also today - we’ll take a look at poverty in America and how the President’s latest budget addresses the issues. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver has called the Obama budget a “nervous breakdown” on paper. We’ll talk to him.
Plus - a visit from the always terrific Jose Diaz-Balart on a new Pew study showing, among other things, that 8 million dead people are still registered. Only in America, right?
