In a Huffington Post article titled “Why the Ryan Pick Fizzled,” Philip Klinkner, the James S. Sherman Professor of Government, discussed why assumed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s selection of U.S. Representative Paul Ryan as his vice president nominee didn't generate an overwhelmingly positive response among voters.
Klinkner pointed out that most Americans know little about Ryan. He also noted that “the Ryan choice didn't give anyone a reason to rethink their presidential vote since there are few undecided voters in this election and there's nothing either demographically or ideologically different about Ryan compared to Mitt Romney.”
