From a press release:
Gov. Mitt Romney seems to get a tiny bounce from his choice of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan as running mate, as President Barack Obama has a 6-point likely voter lead in Ohio and stays on the upside of too-close-to-call races in Florida and Wisconsin, according to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times Swing State Poll released today.
Congressman Ryan does have slightly better net favorability ratings than Vice President Joseph Biden in each state. By narrow margins, more likely voters in Florida and Ohio think Biden is qualified to serve as president, while more Wisconsin voters say Ryan is qualified. Matching Obama against Romney among likely voters in each of these key states shows:
Florida: Obama at 49 percent to Romney’s 46 percent, compared to Obama’s 51 – 45 percent lead August 1;

Wisconsin: Obama at 49 percent to Romney’s 47 percent, compared to Obama’s 51 – 45 percent lead August 8. Florida: • •
