Ryan Pick Has Little Impact on Race

A new Economist/YouGov Poll finds no significant impact from Mitt Romney's pick of Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate. President Obama leads Romney by three points, 47% to 44%. Last week, Obama had a one point lead.

The Gallup daily tracking poll also shows Romney getting no bounce from his selection of Ryan.

Looking back at past campaigns, Harry Enten finds a net gain of four points in the polls for the party that picks a new running mate.
