    Poll: Paul Ryan Rating Has Dropped Significantly Post-Election

    Paul Ryan is viewed favorably by just 35 percent of American voters, according to a Rasmussen poll released Monday. 54% view him unfavorably. A bare 52 percent majority of GOP voters gave Ryan positive marks, down from 83 percent when he was selected as the Republicans' vice presidential nominee in August 2012.

    According to Rasmussen, that puts Ryan far behind Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in terms of popularity within his own party. Ryan also finished a distant fifth in this past weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll, taking 6 percent of the vote.

    His budget is too similar to Obama's.

    Being on the losing presidential ticket tends to brand you as a loser. Only one losing vice presidential candidate ever became president. Ryan will not be the 2nd.

    Certainly he will be around, like Santorium, Palin, Gingrich.... I don't know, name a few other Cons that will make noise but will never make policy.

    Right. The problem is they're all feeding into the same collective delusion, so the "new" ones are always peddling the same garbage, maybe from a new angle...................
