On top of the bounce showing in the Gallup Poll, Obama is now showing a bounce in the Rasmussen tracking Poll (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/obama_s_convention_bounce - broken link) leading 49%-45% after being tied yesterday.

It also misses much of the Bill Clinton speech and is weighted 1/3 Tuesday prior to Hillary and includes all of Wednesday which is post Hillary and did they post how many had been surveyed Tuesday prior to Hillary? East Coast was done and West Coast may not have been done prior to the speech. Tuesday is completely without Bill and Wednesday again is partial and Thursday is none of Bill. Thuse the impact of Hillary is probably 50% weighted in, Bill a little more then 1/3 and Obama none at all. Could end up as high as 6-7% probably closer to 5-6%
