I expect whatever "bounce" the candidates get from the Conventions will disappear long before Election Day.  This can be explained by regression toward the mean: any sudden shift in the polls away from the general pattern will tend to correct itself over time.  Also, according to the CU professors' report, the location of the party's National Convention has no significant effect on which way an individual state votes.  So not only will the DNC not have any effect on the nationwide vote, it won't help Obama in Colorado either.

Actually, if you would have read the numbers, you would have seen a 2-3 point slump for Obama on this poll.

Where does Gallup post the single day results?

They don't, so far as I can tell.

This wasn't Romney gaining, however.  It was Obama sinking (and he recovered most of it).

Beet, this not a horse race poll.  It is a favorable/unfavorable poll.  Obama's approval numbers dropped, on this poll, when the pre-convention started dropping out.  It did start to recover this week, when there was some distance from the RNC.  He's nearly recovered from it.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 46%, -1.

Disapprove 54%, +2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 25%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  44%, +1.


It could just be a bad sample.

Gallup's weekly approval for Obama is 44%, which is the lowest since the second week of December 2011.  I suspect that this was due to the RNC and he will recover during this week.

when was the last time Obama's Gallup was over 50?  Not since OBL dead in May 2011?

Fun fact: George W. Bush's approval among adults also hit 52% after the 2004 Republican National Convention.

Caveat: "Adults" is a group more Democrat-leaning than registered voters, which is more Democrat-leaning than likely voters.

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.

I looked it up and Obama hasn't been at 52 since OBL dead, however there were two days in 2011 where he hit 51. He hasnt been over 50 for a sustained period since May 2011 so if this sticks, it will be significant

sorry I mean two days in 2012 where he hit 51 for one day: May 3rd and June 24th.

Essentially starting in the summer of 2010 he has been in the 40s except for two periods where he had sustained 50+ rating: the lame duck session where they actually got some stuff done in late 2010 and Killing OBL in May 2011. Since then he has been stuck in the 40s for the most part.

Or a bad sample.

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