The numbers jump a bit for Obama today, but we haven’t seen impact of the Biden announcement yet. It’ll be interesting to see what happens in the next couple days before the convention.

Rasmussen shares some data about the Veep nominee…

Biden—who had been the frontrunner all week according to Rasmussen Markets data– is viewed favorably by 43% of voters nationwide, unfavorably by 38%. Other than Hillary Clinton, Biden is better known than any other names floated recently as prospective running mates.

Biden, who has spent more than half his life as a Senator from Delaware, is seen as politically liberal by 41%, moderate by 22%, and conservative by 15%. Obama is seen as politically liberal by 63% of voters.
