Obama's Convention Bounce Will Deflate Quickly
Yesterday, Gallup reported the first real discernible signs of a convention "bounce" in Obama polling. Over the course of the week, Obama's job approval rating moved up 7 points. In Gallup's daily tracking Friday, 52% of adults approved of the job Obama was doing. In a head-to-head match-up, Obama led Mitt Romney by 3 points, 48-45. It is clear that up to that point in the convention, Obama was enjoying a bounce. It also seems clear, however, that his bounce will deflate rather quickly.
