Romney Leads Obama 47-43 in Rasmussen, Ryan Has 50% Favorability

Despite Democrats pretending to be thrilled about the selection of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate, these no doubt are some sobering numbers for them.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 43%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. Romney’s lead is a bit larger when leaners are included.

In Ohio, the candidates are tied at 45% each. Ohio remains one of 12 states with 156 Electoral Voters that are either Toss-Ups or Leaners in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.

There was some bogus poll out the other day saying how poorly received Ryan was.

As if.

Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan’s favorables are up after the first blush of national media exposure following Mitt Romney’s selection of him as his vice presidential running mate. But as is generally the case with running mates, Ryan gives only a slight boost to Romney.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of Ryan, while 32% view him unfavorably. This includes 29% with a Very Favorable view of Romney’s vice presidential pick and 13% with a Very Unfavorable one.  Only 13% are now unfamiliar with Ryan, and five percent (5%) are not sure about him.

The polling probably won’t get any better after the daily barrage of incendiary attacks against Romney and Ryan. They’re desperate and they know it.
