WASHINGTON--Tapping Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate did not give Mitt Romney an immediate significant bump, according to a new Gallup survey--just one point. Read it HERE.

Romney announced Ryan, a Janesville, Wisc. Republican on Saturday. The new Gallup poll shows the contest with President Barack Obama still close.

From Gallup: "The first four days of Gallup Daily tracking after Romney's announcement show 47% of registered voters saying they would vote for Romney and 45% for Barack Obama if the election were held today. The four days prior showed Romney at 46% and Obama at 45%."
