Mitt Romney vice presidential pick Paul Ryan gets low scores in recent USA Today poll. While I think it may be entirely too early to ask Americans what they think about Paul Ryan, since his candidacy was only announced Saturday morning, it’s interesting nonetheless because it plays into the notion that most people don’t, except the Tea Party folks, don’t know who Paul Ryan is. On that basis, his name being tossed in the ring, doesn’t add up to a hill of beans and Mitt Romney didn’t hit that homerun he was forced to attempt.

A USA Today/Gallup poll finds that more of the public are giving Paul Ryan lower marks than high ones. The poll finds the Wisconsin congressman, whose district is about 700,000, is seen as only a “fair” or “poor” choice by 42% of Americans vs. 39% who think he is an “excellent” or “pretty good” vice presidential choice.

  • Janet:

    Do you know if there is a poll on the record number of Black people who had HOPE that a vote for Obama would revolutionize their economic situation AND NOW they can be heard saying “Obama has created more jobs in 4 years than Bush did in 8 BUT they can’t hear them asking WHERE IS MY JOB as I am unemployed”?

    (Analysis between the lines: They have shifted from a SELF-INTERESTED FOCUS about the facts of their own community over to OBAMA’S BEST INTEREST and they assume that people can’t hear it in their arguments)

    Is this healthy, Janet, to hear Black people wanting Obama to win more than they care to speak about their own condition?

    The rebuttal IS NOT: “Romney won’t do anything more either. THEY ARE PLANNING TO INVEST IN OBAMA to affirm their present sanctification. The point is that despite the fact that their condition won’t be any different 4 years from now – 4 year from now they will be heard making the same argument. There has NOT been a NON-POLITICAL alternative to their salvation developed and they can’t see it – so they keep investing in the fraudulent system of politics.)
