On the campaign trail to -- governor Romney and senator Santorum making their pitches for a primary votes.
In congressman Ryan's home state of Wisconsin this evening Romney maintaining a comfortable lead over -- -- in the latest polls a new poll shows the president also relatively comfortable leading.
Romney by nine points in key battleground states including Wisconsin.
Ed Rollins leading Republican strategist Fox News -- violence joins us here now.
This this poll is is -- interest during the USA today Gallup poll.
On the swing states.
Showing the president.
Back in February trailing Romney now leading -- comparable.
Or -- we got to knock down drag out primary and that basically is done more damage.
To us -- Romney has than than than the president has done to us when Romney becomes the nominee was she will.
-- makes his case against the president -- close up is going to be very close election I don't think anybody whether it's and the White House in Chicago doesn't think this is gonna come down -- -- entry point election.
More numbers out of the same poll answering states and this one has got to scare the Dickens out of Republicans in the Romney campaign.
Among women the president leaving.
Our governor Romney by -- huge margin 54 to 36%.
-- -- -- Gender gap started and 8384.
Ronald Reagan had a gender gap and it had basically closing -- by paying attention of the issues that matter to women.
My sense is -- -- -- do the same thing we have a strong.
Pace with the man but we have to make we have to basically make inroads among women and Hispanic voters if -- -- have give it -- -- in the -- And do you think Republicans are during and after our reach out to Hispanic voters well I think we're I think we have a big program which starting now of course in the primary there -- -- -- aren't as many Hispanic voters is there on the general.
Now the focus of in a different constituency group and and the president today going after the Supreme Court I mean there was nothing artful about that.
He's straight out went for.
Well you know category the constitution is constitutional lawyer got to go read the constitution -- separate branch of government.
They're appointed by president they're appointed for life sometimes liberals have the court sometimes we have the court.
At the end of the day he wants to run against the congress which Democrats still control the senate.
Wants to run against that.
-- that the court what you -- run for.
And I think the key thing here is that those branches of government have their own rules and responsibilities he has to talk about what he's -- To make this country a better place and that's where he's vulnerable.
Talking with Foster trees billionaire -- -- I'm sure -- gets -- -- out of area.
The description of the script or -- -- the billionaire backer of Santorum he's clearly in -- supporting them fully into a convention.
Well my my reaction is that would not be -- Santorum campaign Foster -- and then there same -- Gingrich couldn't have been there if he didn't have his is the billionaire.
You know I think the key thing is tomorrow's a big day for Santorum.
Polls indicate he's probably lose all three states if he does ending at a three week gap hear what you're gonna find that three weeks as a lot more prominent Republicans endorsing.
Romney want this thing to be over.
My sense is it goes to Pennsylvania which is in three weeks it Santorum doesn't when his home state which is now started trailing.
Then it's time for -- out of the race.
President Obama's -- I just it was sort of amazed obviously.
When these and defending America exceptional is and he pointed to himself and is some quarters you put it his entire career has been -- testimonial -- raw.
To America well I don't I.
I think to a certain extent where he has come from it it shows how great our country as it did with Bill Clinton came from a similar background.
A Ronald Reagan came from a similar background.
Any man can be president the critical test for him is that -- -- -- get reelected president when -- have been a very good one.
That's attest that that will lead a judgment as exceptional as more the last three years I for one or not not very supportive.
And thanks for being here -- I'd like you --
