Mittsie’s campaign was wilting on the vine, and they decided to wake things up with a bold choice to liven things up.
So, how’s that workin’ out for them? From POLITICS NOW at the Los Angeles Times:
Two more national polls out Wednesday confirm what scattered early data had suggested — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is not seeing much of a boost in the opinion polls as a result of his pick of a running mate.
And a poll of battleground states also showed very limited movement, with Romney gaining a little ground in Ohio and Virginia, but losing some in Florida and Colorado.
The latest national data come from two polls that have generally shown more favorable numbers for Romney than most — Gallup’s tracking poll, and the Economist/YouGov survey. Both polls show that Romney’s choice of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as a running mate has had little or no effecct on the race so far.
