Romney-Ryan, Up By Three (In Other Words, the Convention Worked)
Posted this day on Rasmussen Reports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 44% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
As expected, Romney is enjoying a modest bounce from the past week's Republican National Convention. He trailed the president by two when the convention began and is up by three today....It will take a few more days to fully measure the bounce. This update is based on nightly interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, roughly two-thirds of the interviews were conducted before Romney’s speech to the convention Thursday night.
During the podcast last week, be it noted, Brother Rob predicted that the Convention would give Romney a seven-point bounce. Although I wasn't churlish enough to disagree with Rob out loud, I thought to myself that his estimate seemed remarkable optimistic. Silly me. The next round of polls will probably show that Rob was spot-on.
