CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is expected to lay out his vision for a second term, even as advisers say they don't anticipate a big bounce in the polls following the Democratic National Convention.
White House senior adviser David Plouffe (pluhf) tells ABC's "Good Morning America" he expects the race to remain "tight as a tick" until Election Day.

“Obama advisers don’t expect big bounce in polls”
Yeah...I wouldn’t either.
A liberal using a reference to a blood-sucking parasite.
Democrats are just trying to preempt the speculation about “what happened?” when there is no post-convention bounce after this disaster in Charlotte.
Hurry - set expectations.
Here comes another “un-expected” news item.
I’m curious if there has ever been a convention where there was a negative bounce?
This could be the one.
Yes, I would say it will stay “tight as a tick” until your boss is blown away in an “unexpected” landslide poofer.
After the Jerusalem/God antics, they may actually LOOSE support.
I read a book a long time ago about the Japanese in WWII. It was later in the war, they were getting pushed back on all fronts, and their cities were getting bombed flat on a nightly basis.
Their media (at the time) dutifully reported that "Everything is OK. This is all part of the master plan. The government expected this to happen so there's nothing to worry about."
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
What a clown show. The Republicans could create 1000 ads from all that material. A bounce down is likely.
The AP is reporting this? The DNC internal polling must really suck.
Obama has topped out at 43% +/- a point or two until Nov. when he’ll get a great glimpse of an expanded flyover country which should serve him from getting lost on his farewell flight from the WH to Hawaii in Janurary.
You may get a kick outta this one...
Can you say CRATER?
Gotta manage expectations cause there ain’t gonna be one.
