NH Journal: Romney, Huckabee lead NH GOP race for President, new polls precede launch for controversial film
“A new poll from the consulting firm Strategic National has some interesting numbers from New Hampshire primary voters on the state’s big-ticket races — and on the voters’ views on the intersection of science and religion.
When asked about who they will support in the GOP primary for president, Gov. Mitt Romney had a commanding lead of 33.5% among the crowded presidential field. But the percentages of the two next-place finishers — Gov. Mike Huckabee with 14% and Gov. Sarah Palin with 13% — show a surprising strength for culture warriors in a state that usually opts for more moderate Republicans”

Politico: Ben Smith: Angle to Iowa
“Forget the Academy Awards. Sharron Angle's headed to Iowa tomorrow for a new feature film -- starring Fred Thompson -- called The Genesis Code, which aims at striking a blow in the culture wars.
Angle is, in fact, the sort of grassroots cultural conservative that Republican candidates often pretend to be, and it's easy from the outside to confuse the two. But you won't see Marco Rubio at this premier.”

OK, take a chill pill. Just because Sharron Angle IS going to Iowa doesn’t mean she’s running for President. (Actually you’d probably like that. I'm sure you'd love to start printing Palin/Angle 2012 bumper stickers right now) Everytime the state of Iowa is mentioned everybody gets all up in a lather!”

“Sharron Angle might have lost the 2010 Senate race in Nevada -- and thus a shot at everlasting fame if she had defeated a sitting Senate Majority Leader -- but that's not stopping her from going to Iowa, the top destination for political stars in the presidential season.
As the Des Moines Register reports, Angle is headed to an event tomorrow by the Iowa Christian Alliance Education Fund, for a movie screening.”
National Journal: Hotline On Call: Sharron Angle Heading to Iowa
“Yes, you read that headline correctly. Nevada Republican Sharron Angle, who lost her 2010 Senate bid to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is traveling to Iowa on Wednesday.
Angle's trip comes out of the blue and doesn't mean she's running for the White House. But, as they say, no politician visits Iowa on a whim.
Ostensibly, the Des Moines Register reports that Angle will be attending the screening of a new film, "The Genesis Code," that is being hosted by the Iowa Christian Alliance Education Fund.”
