Romney’s Ryan selection has little impact on favorability rating

Paul Ryan is the talk of the political town, but a Reuters/Ipsos poll published late Monday shows Mitt Romney’s selection of the Wisconsin representative as his running mate has done little to change Romney’s favorability rating.

In a survey conducted between Saturday, the day Romney added Ryan to the Republican ticket, and Monday, 51 percent of registered voters said the pick did not change their opinion of Romney. Voters whose opinions did change were essentially split: 26 percent said they viewed Romney more favorably because of Ryan, and 23 percent said they viewed the presumptive GOP nominee less favorably.
