Obama Taps Pollster as Part of White House Shuffle

President Obama is bringing his campaign pollster, David Simas, into White House, BuzzFeed reports, "part of a broader migration of political staff into government as he gears up to sell his second term agenda to the American people."

"The move comes amid a White House reshuffle where a host of aides who have worked in the administration for years have decided to leave and others have moved up."

Other moves: "Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough will be announced Friday as the new White House Chief of Staff to replace Jack Lew, who Obama nominated to be the next Treasury Secretary. Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer is being promoted to replace departing Senior Adviser David Plouffe. His deputy, Jennifer Palmieri, will be the new Communications Director. Rob Nabors, Obama's Director of Legislative Affairs, will become Deputy White House Chief of Staff for Policy -- a position to expand his influence on domestic policy."
