Question/Debate of the Day: Why is Ricky Falling Behind Obama?
Here is the Question of the Day....ah but first some background to frame it....
According to today's Rassmussen Daily Presidential tracking poll, GOP Presidential contender Rick Santorum, who was leading President Obama last week by one point, now trails him by 4. That is is significant 5 point swing....in th wrong direction.
Even more concerning is this comes after Santorum's 3 state primary sweep on Tuesday and the positve media afterglow. It also comes amidst the most controversial social issue to beset the Obama Administration to date: the controversy over Catholic hospitals being forced to provide birth control against their religious teachings, an issue tailor made for the staunch social conservative.
The poll also found GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney falling back 10 points behind Obama, a drop we understand. Romney is being pummeled daily by the concerted efforts of the DNC, GOP rivals, the Left Wing Media and Talk Radio Truth Twisters.
So my question goes out to all the new found Santorum Apostles (btw, where were you when he was at 1%?)......
What's St. Rick's excuse?
