A Bounce For The Democrats?

Posted Sep 07, 2012 at 3:48 PM by Maurice Berger

PollTrack is seeing the beginning of what may be a discernible post-convention "bounce" for the Democrats. With Romney's bounce receding in the GOP-tilted Rasmussen tracking poll (the challenger's 4% lead is now down to 1%) and Gallup tracking (already having shown no bounce for Romney) now reporting that President Obama is up by +3%, it appears there is already an uptick in support for the Democratic ticket. Even more dramatic is Obama's approval number in Gallup: he has gone from a net negative earlier in the week to a net positive of +9--with his approval rating now at 52%. What is most significant is that these numbers do not reflect the full brunt of the Democratic convention, which only ended yesterday. With a seven-day rolling average, the convention only partially registers in Gallup's numbers. Even Rasmussen's three-day average is based on interviews conducted largely before the president's speech. Stay tuned.
