Source: LA Times

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has put his two cents in on the news that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced.

A federal judge on Sunday temporarily blocked enforcement of a Mississippi law that could shut down the only abortion clinic in the state.

U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan in Jackson issued a temporary restraining order the day the new law took effect.

He set a July 11 hearing to determine whether to block the law for a longer time.

"Though the debate over abortion continues, there exists legal precedent the court must follow," Jordan wrote.

Exit poll: Obama bests Romney in Wisconsin by 12 points

Source: msnbc.com

With a third wave of exit poll data in, Wisconsin recall voters said they would pick President Obama over Republican Mitt Romney by a 54-42 percent margin in Wisconsin.

Caution, though, on the results -- 10 to 12 percent of the electorate voted absentee, and absentees are not included in the exit poll.

Exit polls show a tight race between incumbent Gov. Scott Walker (R) and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. If Walker is able to stave off the challenge and keeps his job, the Obama-Romney head-to-head numbers will throw cold water on analyses claiming the recall is a harbinger for this fall's presidential election.

Just 20 percent of Wisconsin voters said their personal financial situation had gotten better in the past two years; 45 percent said it was the same; 35 percent said it had gotten worse.

Despite that, voters didn't appear to blame President Obama. By a 45-36 percent margin, Wisconsin voters thought Obama would do a better job improving the economy than Romney, with 18 percent saying neither of them.

And by a 48-35 percent margin, voters said Obama would do a better job helping the middle class.
