The convention bump, IT HAS BEGUN!

As far as I can tell this is the highest Gallup has had him since he got that bump from killing Osama bin Laden.

Or a bad sample.

I'd prefer to wait 2-3 more days.

Because Gallup uses a rolling sample, the convention boom hasn't even fully kicked in yet. This could be huge.

Decent bump so far. Imagine if the jobs report had been the initially reported 200k+ figure?

Definite bounce, and it might be higher tomorrow.

Something is seriously wrong with the American public when a pep rally gives a bigger boost than capturing Osama bin Laden. That said, I'll take it.

On the other hand. Not that I think voters are that bright, but in reality, what Clinton explained to the voters is more important for their everyday lives than capturing Osama Bin Laden.

This is a three day average, and they still have one pre-speech sample.  Keep you power dry folks.  We won't know until Tuesday (and I won't be available) or Wednesday on this one.

"Strongly Approve" is at 32%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  41%, -1.

Yeah, just buy air time for 30 minutes each week in the swing states and let Clinton explain sh**t.

Undoubtedly it is good news for the president if he is hitting 52% approval with less than two months to go until the election. His disapproval ratings, at around 46%-47%, seems to be roughly consistent with Mitt Romney's ceiling.

Just to compare with previous one termers, this close to their re-election:

President George HW Bush: 39% approve (September 10-14, 1992)
Jimmy Carter: 37% approve (September 11-14, 1980)

I know that we are still seeing Obama's approval bounce following the convention, but he is clearly on a totally different trajectory than the last two presidents who lost re-election.
