This is what happens when you are tone deaf, when you keep returning to the same failed policies, and when voters are on to you. Take a look at how Paul Ryan, Boy Wonder, is viewed these days. Keep in mind, this comes from Rasmussen, a right-leaning pollster:
Even Republicans have a lower opinion these days of Congressman Paul Ryan [...]
[J]ust 35% of all Likely U.S. Voters now view Ryan favorably. That’s down 15 points from 50% in August just after Mitt Romney chose him as his running mate.
Fifty-four percent (54%) have an unfavorable opinion of the Wisconsin congressman.
It gets worse. 23% gave him a Very Unfavorable.
That sound you hear is a stunned Paul Ryan dropping his weights.
