Default Oh Dear - Bounce is deflating?

Gallup Daily

Rasmussen Reports™: The most comprehensive public opinion coverage ever provided for a presidential election. (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/daily_presidential_tracking_poll - broken link)

Quote:
shows Barack Obama ahead of John McCain by three percentage points both with and without leaners. That’s exactly the same edge Obama enjoyed a week ago on the eve of the Democratic National Convention.
Really, no bounce in Rasmussen poll. Was at 4 on Friday, now 3, so he actually lost a point.

Quote:
There have been significant changes in perception of John McCain in the two days of polling since he named Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. Since then, 49% of Republicans voice a Very Favorable opinion of McCain. That’s up six percentage points from 43% just before the announcement. Also, 64% of unaffiliated voters now give positive reviews to McCain, up ten points since naming his running mate.

Palin herself made a good first impression and is now viewed favorably by 53% of voters nationwide. Her counterpart, Joe Biden, is viewed favorably by 48%.
So, a virtual unknown bests a 36 year Senator from the get-go.

VP Sarah Palin (aka The Bounce Killer)

Biden caused Obama to loose 4% in the polls.

Palin nullified Obama's bounce.

Which one was the better choice again?

They are an average of Thursday (Obama's speech), Friday (the first day of McCains pick), and today. I will wait until Friday when the RNC to see where it all stands before I will judge her impact.

So a mediocre (my opinion of course) VP pick by the GOP and a historic speech by the Greed God and his message of Change (which is a false slogan), and the Dems only leading by single digits? LOL wow
