As speculation continues to mount over which GOP luminary Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will select as his running mate, a new CBS/New York Times poll shows that a wide majority say that the selection of a Vice Presidential candidate could impact their vote.
According to the poll, 74 percent of respondents said the choice matters, with 26 percent of that saying that it matters a lot. 25 percent replied that it does not matter.
Romney’s eventual choice has been the source of months of speculation. Republicans believed to be under consideration include Ohio Senator Rob Portman, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Florida Senator Marco Rubio is reportedly no longer under consideration, according to the Miami Herald.
The poll was conducted among 1,089 respondents between July 11th and 16th.
