The majority of small business owners polled (61%) say they plan to vote for Romney, while only 26% say they plan to vote for President Obama. That's a 6% drop since May.

What can we attribute this change to? Apparently not the selection of Representative Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate. The choice "didn't impact the small business owner vote as the majority (58%) says they still plan to vote for Romney and 25% say Obama still gets their vote," according to a statement released with the results. The release contained no word on how the uproar in the small business community following Obama's "You didn't build that" comment might be affecting the numbers.
