Obama's bounce, now that polling over the entire convention period is now in, according to Gallup is 8 points, one point less than he was up by at one point in July.

Will have to see in the coming days where this poll numbers go as the news of Palin sets in, and the Republicans start their convention. Obama does not appear to have achieved a break away lead with his convention despite being touted as the greatest in history by some.

Gallup Daily: Obama Continues to Lead 49% to 41%


considering most conventions give, on average, a 3-4 point bounce, and Obama has easily doubled that, it seems as if it was a very successful convention indeed.

we shall see what happens next week.

There were probably little to none Christian anti-choicers voting for Obama anyway. The grand majority of socially conservative evangelicals are always going to vote for the Republican. My grandparents and my parents are the only socially conservative Democrats I know. All of our evangelical extended family and friends always vote Repub.

really?

the Palin selection tells me that the Republicans obviously think that "experience" in the traditional sense obviously has no bearing whatsoever on one's ability to be president.

they've aptly demonstrated this with their VP pick.

You are SO wrong my friend, so wrong. It's this kind of thinking that might actually win it for McCain.

If you honestly think that, you don't know much about U.S. politics.

Because that election was exactly like this one, with two candidates exactly like these two, with issues exactly like the ones this country is facing today, and a political climate just like today's.

Well, I don't know about the rest of the gang, but you've convinced me!

Have you seen anyone take on big oil like she has? Wow! What a reformer!
