Even with the Michigan Governor’s support and heavy ad drops in his home state, Mitt Romney continues to hold a solid second place to Rick Santorum. Though the numbers have flexed a slight bit in the last week, Santorum continues to look like the front runner in Michigan. However, Romney does have another week to attempt to over come the difference prior to the February 28, 2012 contest.

In case you didn’t know the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is this week in Washington D.C. This is where all the big personalities, candidates, etc find their way out into a crowd of adoring followers to give even more speeches. (This is after all an election year.) However, this part is not all fun and games. This year the AFL-CIO has called for “Occupy CPAC”.
Pledging to finally make the 99% be heard, you can find out more details from the DC AFL-CIO here.

It probably comes as little surprise to most that the first poll in a few months taken in advance of the Nevada Caucus has Romney with a solid 20 point lead. However, of more interest is the historical data over the last few months shows little change, other than what many might call limited interest in Newt Gingrich.
Check out the run down here at Real Clear Politics.
Final averages from yesterday show Mitt Romney expanding his lead over Newt Gingrich yet again, now leading with nearly 13 points.
Exit polls and early numbers are expected soon today out of Florida, so stay plugged in to find out the latest.
Seems that hell has managed to freeze over and the high gloss shine of Facebook is finally starting to wear off, at least to those under 20. According to recent numbers those crafty teens are packing up their timeline worlds and booking it over to twitter…for more privacy. Yeah you read that right: privacy. (If you haven’t looked at the new Facebook Timeline profile, that might help you understand..) However, it’s not about anything like privacy settings or who is sharing what.
No, it’s actually about simplicity: Facebook creates social circles and expectations, where Twitter just is..well Twitter. Random comments, about random things, with random people. (..and a whole host of people you actually know and care about actually saying something useful from time to time.)
..oh and apparently, Mom and Dad haven’t figured out what a Twitter is, even after all these years, so it becomes a great place to “hide in plain sight.”
Either way, this probably makes the people at Facebook feel pretty awesome to know that in the end one of their largest markets went to Twitter anyway after all that cool innovation they did to keep them on “the book.”
Wait, there is an IPO this week??..huh..
Life, much like that of the science that dictates basic physical principles, apparently is a cruel mistress. Going into the final 24 hours before the Florida primary, Newt Gingrich has now fallen a total of 8.3% in six days and now trails Mitt Romney by 11.5% in polling. If things stay on track, Romney is on track to check Florida off from his list and head in to Super Tuesday on top.
Former Presidential candidate Herman Cain announced late Saturday evening that he will endorse Newt Gingrich on his White House bid.
Though it is hard to say for sure if Cain’s late endorsement will be enough to bump Gingrich back up in the Florida polls, Cain does carry some of the remaining Tea Party support.
That sad, one thing is for certain: Steven Colbert is weeping…

After enjoying a few days of increasing poll numbers in the wake of a major victory in South Carolina, Newt Gingrich falls behind Mitt Romney for the first time in Florida. According to current poll numbers, Gingrich has fallen behind Romney by roughly five points. Going into tonight’s debate, Gingrich has suffered an all out assault on his character and platform from all sides, setting up what should be another hot and heavy debate. (..with clapping.)
With a lackluster performance last night in the first Florida debate, it is hard to tell if Mr. Gingrich will hold his climbing lead in Florida or if Mitt Romney will retake any ground. Stay plugged in for the latest or check out the latest polling results at RealClearPolitics.com.
Though South Carolina is still in the process of certifying it’s final vote tallies prior to awarding it’s delegates to the winner, it is clear that Gingrich will not suffer the same fate as Romney did in Iowa. This contest appears to be in the bag for Newt, who currently is boasting a roughly 13% lead with 99% of precincts reporting, and sets him on course to be a driving force as the primaries travel to Florida for the next official primary vote.
Votes begin their tally in South Carolina with Newt Gingrich showing an early, solid lead. Most news organizations have already made the call that Newt Gingrich will take South Carolina. For the most up to date information, be sure to check out South Carolina’s State Election Commission site for tally details. SCvotes.org
