Obama adviser Pfeiffer says president isn’t a midterm liability

Washington (CNN) - One of President Obama’s advisers said Sunday that, despite the President’s low popularity numbers, he’ll still be helpful for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

A CNN Poll of Polls from last week, averaging four national surveys that measure the President's approval rating, said just 44% of Americans approve of the job Obama's doing in the White House.

But Dan Pfeiffer, senior adviser to the President, said despite those numbers, many Democratic candidates will still rely on help from Obama.

A year after the 2012 election, Romney talks 2016

Washington (CNN) – Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney dismissed reports that he passed over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as his running mate because of Christie’s weight.

On NBC's "Meet the Press," the former Massachusetts governor told David Gregory that Christie's size and health had nothing to do with his not being picked for the GOP ticket.
