Even as the Wash Post today laughably claims poll shows big spike in Paul Ryan's favorable rating--it's based almost fully on more folks knowing about him now--USA Today/Gallup notes that Romney has gained almost nothing from the pick, in fact, one of the smallest gains ever. "Americans don't believe GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney hit a home run with his choice of Paul Ryan as a running mate, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, with more of the public giving him lower marks than high ones.
Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, 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."
