Howard Fineman on electoral votes added by Ryan
If the point of this election is to win, I don't see how Ryan gets you ANY electoral votes. Romney won't win Wisconsin unless it's a landslide for him.
Meanwhile, Rubio would have secured Florida and moved some Hispanic voters. Florida wasn't in contention two months ago, but today Obama is leading there -- so securing it should have been a tactical priority. [Robert] Portman could have helped in Ohio, perhaps the most critical state in the election. So there is no electoral sense to the Ryan pick. …

Ryan doesn't really change Romney's standing with the conservative base, who plan to vote for him despite reservations.”
