So, I guess they'll have to find more women and children to trash!

Obama's bounce smaller than others - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/13068 - broken link)

"CBS News reported Monday that Obama is now ahead in its poll, 48 to 40 percent, a 3-point uptick in Obama’s standing compared to its poll prior to the Democratic convention. Obama’s 3-point bounce exceeds that of John F. Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004 who did not rise in the polls following his convention. But Obama’s bounce is less than a third of what Al Gore received in 2000 and Bill Clinton received in 1992. Even Bob Dole, following the 1996 Republican convention, received a 4-point bounce in the polls, 1 point more than Obama. "

"A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll and a Zogby Interactive flash poll, both completed over the weekend, have found the presidential race is in a dead heat. According to both polls, Obama attained no statistically significant convention bounce."

Hmmm...you make a good point since most of those guys lost. Lets see how he's doing compared to a winner.

"Bush's convention bounce appeared to be 2 percentage points.
The percentage of likely voters who said he was their choice for president rose from 50 right before the convention to 52 immediately afterward.
Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democratic nominee, was the choice of 45 percent of the likely voters interviewed in the most recent poll. He had 47 percent in the poll taken August 23-25."
