CNN Poll: Gingrich lead gone, dead even with Romney

Washington (CNN) - Newt Gingrich's lead in the race for the GOP presidential nomination has evaporated, according to a new national survey.

A CNN/ORC International Poll released Monday indicates that 28% of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say the former House speaker is their choice for their party's nominee, with an equal amount supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. In CNN's previous national poll, conducted last month, Gingrich held a 24%-20% margin over Romney. And Gingrich's lead over the rest of the field of candidates was even larger in other surveys conducted at the beginning of this month.

Boehner: House will reject Senate payroll tax plan

Washington (CNN) - Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Monday morning he expects the GOP-controlled House of Representatives to reject the Senate's two-month extension of the payroll tax cut and instead pass a measure by the end of the day reinforcing the need for a one-year continuation.

The speaker said he wants the issue to be taken up by a House-Senate conference committee - something which would require the Democratic-controlled Senate to return from its holiday break.

Des Moines Register editor: Romney is 'refreshing'

(CNN) - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney nabbed the backing of the Des Moines Register, a decision the editor of the largest Iowa paper attributed Monday to "maturity" and experience.

"Gov. Romney focused on the most important issues," Rick Green told CNN's "American Morning" anchor Ali Velshi. And although the board did not select Romney when he ran four years ago, this cycle, he stood out for his "focus."

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - Mitt Romney is returning to safe harbor on Tuesday, kicking off a week-long tour of New Hampshire, his early state stronghold.

But with his team now stepping up efforts in Iowa and South Carolina - two states he largely avoided for much of the year - Romney's playing field has suddenly expanded beyond his New Hampshire citadel, increasing the stakes for his campaign across the early-state playing field.
