Paul Ryan's First Week, By The Numbers

"America's Comeback Team"
The Romney campaign sent out a memo earlier this morning, detailing some of the positive effects from Paul Ryan joining the ticket. The enthusiasm that I have been seeing online and hearing from fellow Republicans is backed up by hard numbers that show a clear enthusiasm for the Romney-Ryan ticket:

Tomorrow marks a week since Mitt Romney announced his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan to join him on America’s Comeback Team, and it’s clear that his choice has reshaped the race in a positive way. The Obama team’s increasing vitriol is a sure sign that they’re rattled by the pick. Unable to engage in an elevated policy debate, they’ve spent the past few days drowning in their own venom. 

Since the announcement in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday:

Besides these positive numbers, Purple Strategies released a new poll earlier this week that showed Romney ahead in the key swing states of Florida and Ohio, as well as Virginia and a decent chance of winning Colorado.

Paul Ryan is scheduled to appear at The Villages tomorrow morning, undeterred by the Obama campaign's repeated "Mediscare" attacks. Unfortunately for Obama, it seems that Florida's senior citizens can do math, and they understand both what "the Ryan Plan doesn't change Medicare for anyone 55 and older" means for them, and what $16 trillion in debt means for their grandchildren.
