Obama Gets Three-Point Convention Bounce

President Barack Obama got a modest bump in support immediately after last week’s Democratic National Convention, with 50% of registered voters now saying they would vote for him if the election were held today, up from 47% before the convention.

With the concomitant two-point drop in Mitt Romney’s support, Obama’s advantage has expanded from one percentage point to six points. [cont.]
