President Obama is “asking” for a $1.2 trillion increase to the national debt ceiling.

Conservatives in the US outnumber liberals nearly two to one. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney has the largest lead he has every held in national polling of the Republican contenders, 19 points ahead of second-place Newt Gingrich. Romney is also 15.5 points ahead of the nearly competitor in the latest PD Composite.
