Rick Santorum Now Polling Higher than Mitt Romney Against Obama

This is a strange development. Obama has a healthy 10 point lead over Romney in a head-to-head matchup but is beating Santorum by only 4 points.

Perhaps social conservatives and Evangelicals dissatisfied with Romney are not willing to vote for him even in a “lesser of two evils” scenario. Everyone always emphasizes the importance of appealing to independents but independents are least likely to actually vote.

Gallup: Obama job approval surges

The latest Gallup survey shows that 47 percent of Americans now say they approve of the way that President Obama is handling his job. This is a 5 percent improvement since the Dec. 16-18 Gallup survey and marks the first time the president’s numbers have been in positive territory since July.

It’s too soon to draw sweeping conclusions, but it seems that the standoff with House Republicans over the payroll tax cut did no damage at all to the president — and a further climb in the polls could mean that the White House won a significant public relations victory during the payroll tax cut debate.
