As always, we’re keeping an eye (sometimes both) on the presidential field and there’s a lot to look at this week.
Rick Perry caused a stir earlier this week, calling into question President Obama’s citizenship. Perry first said it’s “fun to poke fun at” Obama, but then backed away from the long-refuted accusation.
Mitt Romney didn’t exactly win over Ohio conservatives on Tuesday when he refused to express his support for a ballot initiative that curbs collective bargaining rights for Buckeye State employees. But once Perry pounced on the non-committal stance, Romney affirmed his support for the ballot initiative and apologized for any confusion.
Guest booking alerts after the jump:
And Herman Cain has a new video online that features his campaign manager taking a drag from a cigarette and blowing the smoke towards the camera. We don’t know what to make of the video, but a day after it came out, CBS/The New York Times put out a new poll posting Cain four points ahead of Romney, within the margin of error.
But four CNN/Time Magazine/ORC polls were released Wednesday and in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, Mitt Romney is either tied or leading the field.
What to make of all of this? We’ll talk Sunday with presidential contender Ron Paul and political reporters from Iowa and Florida. Stay tuned for future guest bookings.
