Since Rep. Paul Ryan joined the Republican ticket, Democrats have used his proposal to voucher Medicare as one of the top reasons to vote for President Obama. New Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin published Aug. 23 found that about 60 percent of voters in each of the battleground states trust Obama to handle Medicare.
