The Obama campaign “Dream Team” — Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan — least positive historically, according to Gallup.
Gallup: Four in 10 Americans rate Mitt Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate as either “excellent” or “pretty good,” while 42% call the choice “only fair” or “poor.” This even division is among the least positive reactions to a vice presidential choice Gallup has recorded in recent elections. Only George H.W. Bush’s selection of Dan Quayle in 1988 generated a higher negative response, although it also generated higher positives.
I guess Paul Ryan shouldn’t feel so bad, since 34% of Republicans called Sarah Palin an excellent choice. Um, but looked where the “pitbull in lipstick” got John McCain? Nowhere. Wasn’t such a bold pick after all, was it?
