We’re getting pretty close to finding out what other Republican will be on the ticket with Mitt Romney.  The chatter is increasing and we’re probably within a week or two of the announcement.  Obama picked Biden on August 23, 2008 and the Democratic National Convention was two days later.  Look for similar timing from Romney.  Somewhere around the week of the 20th makes most sense with the convention following on the 27th.  23rd even seems like a good date once again!  You don’t want to allow too much time for the opposition to pick apart your VP nomination ahead of the opportunity to get a bump at the convention – and dominate the news cycle.

So let’s see how smart PB readers are (Ds and Rs alike) and find out who our collective wisdom thinks will be the pick.  For reference, here is what Mitt says he is looking for in a VP pick: “strength of character, vision for the country, that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country.”

Who will be Romney's VP pick?

  • Rob Portman (44%, 55 Votes)
  • Paul Ryan (25%, 32 Votes)
  • Marco Rubio (10%, 12 Votes)
  • Tim Pawlenty (6%, 7 Votes)
  • Bobby Jindal (5%, 6 Votes)
  • Bob McDonnell (5%, 6 Votes)
  • Kelly Ayotte (4%, 5 Votes)
  • Chris Christie (2%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 126
