Monday, we will see McCain/Palin up in every major poll.

Time will tell if it is just a convention bounce, or a long term trend.

Personally, I think it is a long term trend that actually started right after Obama’s trip to Europe.

For 6 weeks, McCain had been down 3-6 points in every poll. For a few days after the European trip, he jumped up to +8-9 in some polls. Then the downward trend started.

Over the next 6 weeks, McCain slowly chipped away at Obama’s lead. Battleground state polls began to move McCain’s direction.

By the time of the democratic convention, McCain was tied or up slightly in most polls.

Obama looks to have gotten a short lived 6-7 point bounce from the convention. Also it may have been aided by the long Labor day weekend, and hurrican Gustav.

Now McCain looks to be getting a double digit bounce.

Can’t wait to see a new round of state polls.
