Hmm, was that before or after the DOJ threat of a law suit?

The job approval numbers are of “adults” - not even of registered voters. Not even worth mentioning or discussing.

The horse race number is for registered voters.

I do believe Gallup is registered voters, not likely.

Also, just wait a few days. Obama will stick his foot in his mouth again before too long.

This is OK.
Any reasonable person would expect Obama to get some kind of an bounce out of even a weak convention.

Now the fight begins.

Based on historical trends, Romney will get 80% of undecided so he would still win 52-48 even with this poll.. until Obama gets over 50% on consistent basis, I am not woryying.

I would argue the horse race number is for registered, LIKELY voters as opposed to unregistered, likely voters.

Foot in his mouth? LOL
With the job report out today there is no need for that to happen. It should take his job approval down very fast.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/113980/Gallup-Daily-Obama-Job-Approval.aspx

“Gallup tracks daily the percentage of Americans who approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as president. Daily results are based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 national adults; Margin of error is ±3 percentage points. “

Again, Gallup’s job approval is a poll of adults. A completely meaningless poll in terms of the election outcome.

It's registered voters for their daily tracking, but the 52% job approval rating is adults only.

Agree that the DNC convention was a collection of:

The easily duped

The aggrieved

The where’s mine crowd

Those who want some to speak for them

A collection of pinnochios with no one willing to point out their growing nose

Add to as you desire

The Dems ran a much smarter convention. They actually attacked their opponents on specifics, while the convention of Rience, Romney and Rove seemed to avoid mentioning Obama as much as possible, and when they did, giving the softest, vaguest excuses for critiques (except for Eastwood who explained he made up his speech without consulting with anyone else). How many punches did the Dems land on their opponents compared to the Repubs? At best, the Repubs were on defense the whole time against nonsense like the “war on women,” which simply allowed the Dems to remain one step ahead and continue on the offense at their convention. The Republican party seems to be run by absolute idiots. The GOP convention was a shockingly stupid waste of time that provided almost nothing helpful in the campaign against Obama.

Looks like Obummer is going to get a pretty solid bounce.

We probably would have gotten one as well were it not for the media making every effort to overshadow the RNC convention with the hurricane. Also, whether some can admit or not, Mooshell, Clinton and Obama are simply better orators than anything we can put forward right now. Additionally, our convention was saddled with paultards and their guests. These paulbots are actually against our ticket and were doing their best to disrupt and put a wet blanket on the whole convention (before anyone tries to defend them, paultards hate social conservatives just as much as they do R/R). It just killed the atmosphere to have that much division on the floor.

President Carter got a 5 point bounce in 1980 from his convention and we all know how that turned out.

Not quite. We had Newt, who could have given a speech just like Clinton's which dissected the failings of the Obama regime. But the RNC muzzled him. We also have Palin, who gave a tremendous speech last time but was now shut out. Christie certainly could've done a tougher speech...so why didn't the RNC ask him to? And we even have Donald Trump, if you want a real attack dog.

The RNC's strategy has been not to attack Obama "too hard or too much." I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me why that's a good strategy. The "he's a nice guy, but" campaign didn't work too well for McCain. They seem to be operating on some bizarre assumption that independent voters are "moderates" who really like Obama, and will be "turned off" if we attack him. But if anything, moderate voters are so easily manipulated that if you tell them Obama is the devil incarnate, they're likely to believe you and thus vote against him. The Dems know this, which is why their campaigns are built on telling everyone Republicans are the devil incarnate. Of course, this is why they forced Romney on us in the first place.

You know, I want to agree with you on this. I really do. Most times I would since I have no problem with negative campaigns or a constant attack strategy. But you know what, I personally know so many people that just zone out if you come down too hard on Hussein. The problem seems to be that huge numbers of people STILL have some emotionally attachment to the guy. They WANT to like him. That is a huge advantage Obummer has. In general, the segment of voters we want to reach want to like Obama and they don't want to hear they were wrong about him. It's like some sort of battered spouse syndrome. Maybe no one you know or associate with has fallen under this spell, but I know quite a few people who have and it's made me realize how hard it is for R/R to win this.

I am not saying we shouldn't attack Hussein, we should. I am saying we do have to be careful about how we do it. When people have an emotional attachment to someone, they do not like to be told they were wrong. You have to kinda encourage them to come to their own conclusion. I'm guessing pretty much every focus group is showing this same thing, which is the reason the ads from R/R and the big superPAC's are offering lines like "it's okay to vote for the other guy this time, it really is".

I like Newt a lot and agree he could have given a great speech. I also agree Christie should have been much more of an attack dog. They held him back so much his speech was simply boring. On Palin, I like her but don't agree that she is much of an orator. Charismatic in her own way, yes - but not an orator the way Mooshell, Clinton or Obama are.

I think we agree that the RNC convention sucked though. Spending all that time trying to "humanize" Romney was a waste of time in my opinion. Simple a giant missed opportunity, and part of the reason the floor was so subdued. I mean, that stuff was just boring.
