Ryan's Medicare Plan Remains Very Unpopular

A new Pew Research survey finds 72% have heard a lot or a little about Rep. Paul Ryan's proposal to change Medicare into a program that would give future participants a credit toward purchasing private health insurance coverage. And among those who are aware, the idea remains unpopular; by a 49% to 34% margin more oppose than favor the idea.

Meanwhile, 46% say Ryan is an only fair or poor choice as Mitt Romney's running mate, while 28% say he is an excellent or good choice. By comparison, reactions to John Kerry's selection of John Edwards in 2004, and Bill Clinton's selection of Al Gore in 1992, were more positive than negative.
