A new Washington Post-ABC News poll has found that 70 percent of registered voters believe that Super PACs should be illegal.

They said that Republican campaign messages to young people are mostly absent, weak or a turn-off and they called youth outreach efforts uninspired.

In advance of the Colorado Republican caucuses tonight, the Northern Colorado Tea Party– perhaps the most influential of the state’s many tea party groups– isn’t backing away from its constitutional conservative mission. Far from recommending members warm up to presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney, the group has unofficially thrown its support behind libertarian Congressman Ron Paul.
Saying it has the potential to be “the most significant day in the Republican race yet,” Public Policy Polling Director Tom Jensen said late Monday night that former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is poised to win in Minnesota and Missouri tonight, while possibly taking second in Colorado.
