Ryan is turning the tide against obama.


John Zogby Poll: Ryan Gives Romney Big Push in Swing States, Independents

Mitt Romney’s campaign has gotten a decisive bump upwards with the selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate, a new poll by JZ Analytics reveals.

The poll — the first survey conducted after Romney announced Ryan as his vice presidential choice — shows the Romney/Ryan ticket tied with Obama/Biden at 46 percent.

But a JZ Analytics poll from a few weeks ago had Obama leading Romney by 5 percentage points, and most major polls also had Obama comfortably in the lead before the Ryan selection.

How can that be? All we heard from left wing kooks is how the choice was bad and it was the end of Romney..

Ooh thats right, left wing kooks get their postings from their "opinions", or source car wash polls.. haha

It's too soon to know what Ryan will do to the campaign and Romeny's hopes. Outside of the politically interested, few know much about him. Just the news coverage will give Romney a bump, but it may be fleeting. As the next few days and weeks unfold, both sides will try to "define" him and that will begin to show in polling. One thing, though, the election is for the time being no longer about Romney but about Ryan. We saw the same thing in 2008 with Palin. I don't think that is good for a candidate when the VP overshadows the candidate.

Considering that nearly 39% of voters don't know who Ryan is at this point, I'd give the race until the end of September before I'd put much weight in the polls.

Your point is? John Zogby has the worst polls.

It actually worked well for the Mccain/Palin ticket. They were pretty much ahead in the polls until the economy tanked. Unfortunately, McCain decided to do the noble thing and suspended his campaign to focus on the economy. Obviously, the rest is history...
