Awaiting The Obama Bounce

Sep 6 2012 @ 2:02pm

Plouffe is trying to lower expectations. Drew Linzer sees none for Romney:

Either voters didn’t like what they were hearing, had already made up their minds, or simply weren’t paying much attention (all relatively speaking, of course). Considering Obama’s current lead in the polls, none of these scenarios are good for Romney. And if it turns out that Obama does receive a bounce coming out of the DNC, then we can likely conclude that the reason Romney didn’t get a bounce from the RNC isn’t because voter opinion is just fundamentally difficult to move this year.

Silver likewise ponders the bounce.
