Although the most recent Gallup poll didn't find any "immediate bump" nationally from the addition of Paul Ryan to Mitt Romney's presidential ticket, a new Purple Strategies survey finds that Ryan helped contribute to a decent upward swing in two crucial battleground states over the past month.
The Romney-Ryan ticket now leads President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the key swing states of Virginia and Ohio, which each saw 5-point swings in the last month. Romney-Ryan lead 46 to 44 percent in Ohio and 48 to 45 percent in Virginia. Combined, the two states account for 31 electoral votes that could key a Romney win in November.
Overall, in the dozen swing states that Purple Strategies measures, Romney and Ryan lead Obama and Biden by a single point 47 to 46.
Purple Strategies pollsters Doug Usher and Bruce Haynes write that the Ryan addition has been the most positive sign for the Romney campaign in months.
Taken as a whole, these data indicate a small bump in the immediate aftermath of the Ryan announcement. Nonetheless, it is also the first sign of positive momentum for the Romney campaign that weve seen in the PurplePoll in the last few months.
Ryan, incidentally, is the most liked of the four candidates on both tickets...

They might be in panic mode:
Thanks for the link. Its nice to see big crowds for R/R.

Gee, I could of SWORN that many insiders thought that picking Ryan was a mistake. Could they POSSIBLY be wrong??
OK, haha! I’m sure the atmosphere will be a lot like Sarah Palin’s four years ago!
I don’t know what that means....
Did you make it to Ashland?
BTW, I'll be the tall funny looking guy wearing the yellow Gadsden shirt with the tall good looking wife and 12 year old son.
No, I happened to be on the northern that weekend. Sarah definitely rocked the house, err field!
Was on my phone Fingers are too big to type so tried to shorten envy.
i wonder if we will ever hear an onsight lefty reporter say We have a massive overflow crowd here in Colorado, i am hearing that over 2000 were turned away to see Paul Ryan. Obama is now in total panic mode being his last rally had an attendance of 250 people.
Gallup is a LIB SHILL outfit...Rasmussen had it different.
Oh, haha, I know the feeling!
