Poll: Does Mitt Romney's Choice Of Paul Ryan For Vice President Change Your Vote?

Mitt Romney announced Saturday that his choice for vice president is Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan.

Mitt Romney announced Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) .

Ryan, 42, has served in the House of Representatives for 14 years, currently chairing the House Budget Committee and serving on the House Ways and Means Committee. In January 2010, Ryan gained attention nationwide after unveiling his "Roadmap for America’s Future."

The New Yorker called the choice of Ryan the "most daring choice of Romney's political career." The magazine noted that the selection of Ryan was a deliberate change in direction for Romney and a move meant to make the campaign into more of an ideological debate.

Romney has been trailing Obama in key states and nationally in recent polls. The polling average at Real Clear Politics, currently has Obama up nationally 48 percent to 43.4 percent.

Sara has not been invited either. Unfortunately 41 can't be there (he probably should be there to try to wrestle the party back to some decently humane positions). Wonder if other sensible people like Alan Simpson will attend. As far as Ryan. Romney as a Venture Capital Executive has used all those CEO skills to pick his number two... Ryan was voted "most likely to brown nose" in his 1988 high school yearbook.

Last I looked, the US Federal Budget took on the costs of two wars, created a new cabinet level department - Homeland Security, and created the single largest new entitlement program - the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan...while cutting taxes - TWICE - all passed by a Republcion House, a Republicon Senate and signed into law by Geroge W. Bush. And now that we have to pay for it, youse people want to blame the Democrats and President Obama? You serriously are missing who the real culprits for what you are complaining about.

David your remarks are head in the sand commentary. Unemployment up, apathetic workers, Debt doubled, Corporate cash on the sidelines waiting for new leadership to be invested in new jobs, Handcuffing regulation, polarized America "Rich vs Poor" nonsense, Non transparency, deliberate security leaks from the Administration, lack of World Respect, Obstinate environmental policies, continues to mount debt at the rate of $3MM per minutes, puts his head in the sand bout the future of Medicare and Social Security, and not a bit of common sense business ability. Pray for America, 4 more years of this President will lead to a great depression and riot in the streets...Yes riot in our own streets, not someone elses.

Perhaps you need a mirror. You might see who's actually doing the lying. You should be ashamed to be part of the same party that has thrown the smears, lies, and racism at Obama. He's not perfect, Dems aren't perfect, but the alternative is a hell of a lot worse. He inherited Bush's mess. Do you really want a country that has no regard for it's own people, where companies show profit by shipping jobs overseas, needlessly firing employees, cutting benefits, making most workers part-time independent contractors so they are paid no benefits, blaming unions for all their problems, privatizing Social Security, Medicare, public schools and more for profit. Do you really want a country where you can't walk the streets in safety because of excessive poverty and concealed guns everywhere. Do you really endorse a party that has no regard for women and their rights to equality, a party that will do anything to obstruct Obama, a party that hates gays and everyone else who looks, acts, or believes differently from them. So who is actually doing the lying. They're not perfect, but it's not the Democrats.
