Q Poll: Romney gets 'tiny bounce' from Ryan pick, gets 46% to Obama's 49% in FL

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;

Ohio: Obama edges Romney 50 – 44 percent, unchanged from August 1;

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

By numbers in the economy, Obama should have little chance for re-election.

But, the Republicans followed their grand old tradition of nominating the person who was next in line. Romney was next in line by having lost the nomination four years ago to McCain.

So, at the end of the day it will come down to this ...
when the 10% of independent voters in the middle decide to:

a) send Obama packing for failing to fix a bad economy with persistent high unemployment, or

b) let the uber-wealthy Republican candidate take a turn.

Hint--If the Obamabots had a real clue they would ask one simple question: Since the bankers screwed up the economy and got us all in this mess, why should voters believe the Republican investment banker Romney can or will fix it?
