Posted on 08/14/2012 7:33:05 AM PDT by WashingtonSource
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 Romneys 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.
Ah, the magic 50% approval...
Oh, boo hoo Obozo...don’tcha wish!
USA Today polls in today’s rag make him as bad a choice as Dan Quayle. The left is desperate as is Kristen Powers.
This is bad news for the big blitz the dems have put on Ryan in an attempt to make him unlikable.
I believe it’s Kirsten Powers. I have no idea why she showsup as a pundit on Fox news.
Same reason Bob Beckal does.
Just don’t underestimate the filth, lies and treachery of the Chicago thugs.
3. Independents (that would people morons with brains or a soul...also called MODERATES) and leftists (liberals, progressives, fascists, socialists, communists, anarchist) NOW outnumber us and it is only going to get worse.
However, there is ONE bright spot. If Romney wins, Nov.7th will be the largest single upward movement of the stock market in the history of the USA. If you want to make a killing buy low now and pray!!!! You could be sitting on millions by Nov. 8th.
Ya, I figured that the media would do the Dan Quayle routine on him.
Some allegedly serious liberal talking heads have declared that Paul Ryan is the most dangerous man in America. Wonder if that narrative will gain traction.
He’s the most dangerous man in America because of the Ryan budget, and the narrative that he wants to throw Granny off the cliff.
I’ve never understood why Obama gets a pass from the media on Medicare issues, when Obamacare has cut at least $500 billion from Medicare funding. Yet Paul Ryan is considered dangerous for wanting to make changes to Medicare. While Obama slashes Medicare funding, and nothing is said about that.
Check out these numbers for Ohio
Obamacare cuts $700 billion from Medicare. A fact that should be pushed in the face of every Leftist propaganda bot pushing this “Ryan wants to gut Medicare” lie
Exactly. The Obamanists have 2.5 months and lots of $20 bills to drag through the hoods. Mitt Romney has five sons and Paul Ryan.
Obama’s got the media and the IRS. Mitt Romney has...five sons and Paul Ryan.
I predicted this days ago. They will get more desperate, smearing themselves in the process, but Ryan will be untouched.

Because when it comes to politics, the media’s MAIN job is doing everything in their power to ensure Republicans don’t get elected. Nothing is said that would hurt Obama’s election chances for that reason.
A telephone survey! Oh goody! What’s the matter - was the Western Union telegraph office closed or busy?
A telephone survey requires all of these:
1) A landline
2) A landline telephone that is answered by a bored or gullible individual as well as one who is home (i.e. not at work or at play) to answer
3) An individual who doesn’t use or check Caller ID
4) An individual who uses Caller ID and answers anyway
5) An individual willing to participate in a poll i.e. do the pollster’s research for him. For free.
6) An individual willing to divulge not only political views but often household income, education level, marital status, parental status, voter registration, etc. to a complete, invisible stranger
7) An individual willing to express an opinion on a person or a subject that he may know nothing about except possibly a name or a party affiliation
Rasmussen’s a top bloke but polls based on this methodology are like asking Ray Charles to describe a Rembrandt.
Poll is worthless without listing how many respondents are Democrats who will never vote GOP and without listing the “right choice” factor in Obama staying with Joe Biteme.
Excellent. The talking heads were saying the first 48-72 hours of framing and portraying Paul Ryan would be very important. Looks like the Dem’s lost that BIG PR battle.
From the Ohio Survey...
Mitt Romney named Paul Ryan to be his Vice Presidential running mate. Was this the right choice for Romney to make?
With Paul Ryan as his running mate, are you more likely or less likely to vote for Mitt Romney?
More likely 40%
Less likely 32%
More likely 42%
Less likely 18%
Amazing how Rasmussen's methodology called the 2008 election to within less than 1% in his final poll that year, isn't it?
Excellent! The only two polling companies I trust are Rasmussen and Gallup. The rest vastly over-sample democRATs, from what I’ve seen (and has been proven).
I believe its Kirsten Powers. I have no idea why she showsup as a pundit on Fox news.
To smile and mouth her talking points.
She slipped a little yesterday and admitted on substance she sees what Ryan is talking about.
Interesting. Thanks for the link.
And Wall Street is trying to figure out if the public gets the message on the Fixcal Cliff....Video and links on the thread:
I had a DU account stashed, and then one day a thread emerged and I saw my opportunity to POUNCE! I mentioned the $500 billion (I think it was recently raised) at the time. I think my account lasted another 6, maybe upwards of 8 or 9 more seconds. I'm now a retired DU poster.
They must have a paid staff.....wonder who is funding that?
Tens of millions of voters probably are still totally in the dark as to the ramifications of the huge deficit this nation is now faced with.
Agreed. This is how 0bama ensures America STAYS weakened long after he leaves office. If he ever does. 0bama believes America is ‘too successful’ and needs to weaken us and “spread OUR wealth” OVERSEAS so the rest of the world can catch up. Giving Brazil $2 BILLION for oil drilling off their coast (0bama says NO to doing so HERE) is a perfect example of him giving OUR wealth to others while putting us into debt.
Yeah, Kirsten. You’re right. Figures a lib would screw up the spelling of a fairly normal name.
Of course they would. They are truly afraid and I’m loving every minute of it.
“Because when it comes to politics, the medias MAIN job is doing everything in their power to ensure Republicans dont get elected.”
Thanks for your reply to another Freeper who after 8 years of personal assassination of Bush, we still get that “why the media...” This is the most redundant question that is so easy to answer:
media = lib Dems who hate conservatives and Pubbies’
The elite world order must be so proud of him.
A binary choice is a hell of a lot different than some nebulous ‘likeability’ rating.
Does it bother anybody that Ryan doesn’t get to a balanced budget.....till 2040! A QUARTER OF A CENTURY FROM NOW!
