Ryan better qualified to serve as president: Rasmussen

A Rasmussen poll out today shows that likely voters believe Paul Ryan is better qualified to serve as president than Joe Biden.

Voters are evenly divided as to whether Paul Ryan or Joe Biden is better qualified to serve as president. Not surprisingly, there's a huge partisan divide on the issue. Forty-two percent (42%) of Likely U.S. Voters say Ryan's more qualified to be the chief executive, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. But nearly as many (40%) think Biden is a better fit for the job. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided.

It shouldn't be that close. Biden has been Veep for three years and a relative political unknown bests him in the only category that really matters when polling on vice presidents?

Biden is set to hit the hustings again this week. No doubt the Obama campaign has him on a very short leash with stern orders not to ad lib anything. But the man can't help himself and it wouldn't be surprising if he tells Ohioans it's great to be in West Virginia or tell an audience that he and Obama are leading Americans into the 20th century.
