Romney Falling Behind in Polls. Will Paul Ryan Help?

Monday, August 13, 2012


Recent polls have Mitt Romney slipping behind President Obama – including among men and suburbanites. Running mate Paul Ryan could help, but so far he’s largely unknown to voters.

Less than 48 hours after Mitt Romney tapped Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate, Americans are on a steep learning curve about what pundits unanimously call a “bold” choice.

Public opinion polls unwind before our very eyes.

The most recent CNN/ORC International poll, taken a few days before Saturday’s announcement, gives Mr. Ryan a 27-19 favorable/unfavorable rating with a whopping 54 percent saying they’re unsure or have never heard of him. That’s in line with earlier polls by CNN/ORC, Bloomberg/Selzer, and NBC/WSJ.
