BUT CAN HE WHISTLE GRIEG?:

GOP bounce: McCain overtakes Obama (DAVID PAUL KUHN, 9/7/08, Politico)

John McCain has overtaken Barack Obama in the Gallup daily tracking poll and has his highest level of support in that poll since early May. [...]

McCain’s 5-point to 6-point bounce so far, like Obama’s, remains at par with historical expectations. In the 22 major-party conventions since 1964, the nominee walked away with, on average in most years, a 5-point to 6-point uptick in Gallup’s polls. The presidential polling will likely remain in flux until the middle of next week.

Today's Gallup report continues to include some polling conducted prior to McCain's acceptance speech. Tomorrow's report will be the first to include interviews solely conducted following the close of the GOP convention.

Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll also reported today that when "leaners” are included, Obama and McCain are now tied at 48 percent. That means that, by Rasmussen’s measure, Obama’s 6-point bounce has been erased. CBS News polling had shown the same outcome midway through the GOP convention.


If the Unicorn Rider manages to blow the third consecutive "winnable" election for the Democrats one pictures him cringing before the howling mob like Peter Lorre in "M."
