Hosted by

Super PAC's are the latest thing in political finance. These massive financial war chests allowed by recent Supreme Court decisions are spending more than the candidates -- $26 million so far -- without disclosing their sources. With names like "Restore Our Future," "Winning Our Future" and "Make Us Great Again," their real purpose is to support particular candidates like Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry. Based on this year's campaign records, what's been their impact on election results so far?
