Rep. Paul Ryan got a major dose of bad news Monday with a new Rasmussen Reports poll revealing that just 35 percent of likely American voters have a favorable opinion of him.

Some 54 percent said they have an unfavorable opinion of the Wisconsin congressman who authored the new House GOP budget plan.

The percentage of those who like Ryan is down an alarming 15 points from 50 percent last August when Mitt Romney selected him as his vice presidential running mate.

And that could stymie any attempt to run for the GOP’s presidential nomination in 2016.

“Those figures show Ryan is about as popular in the GOP as John McCain and Lindsey Graham. He is far behind Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio,” said Rasmussen president Scott Rasmussen.

The new poll figures include 17 percent with a very favorable view of Ryan and 23 percent with a very unfavorable one.

Another 12 percent said they were undecided on how they felt about Ryan.

The telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on March 14-15.
