    Dave Heller and Gallup’s Frank Newort discuss some of this week’s polls, including:

    Voters in exit polls Tuesday were most likely to say that “electability” is the most important criteria for their vote….what are the implications of that for Pennsylvania’s own Rick Santorum?
    Are Republicans still more motivated to vote this year than Democrats?
    Hawaii and North Dakota have the highest well-being of any state in the union – and West Virginia has the worst – a look at where PA, NJ and DE come in.
    As long as we are on the subject of the tri-states, what percentage of adults in PA, NJ, and DE are obese – and how does that stack up against the other 47 states of the union?
