This is the presidents biggest lead over Romney among Likely Voters since March 17. See daily tracking history. Obamas convention bounce is evident both in the head-to-head numbers with Romney and in his Job Approval ratings (see below).
The president has made significant gains among voters aged 40-64. Platinum Members can see demographic breakdowns and additional information from the tracking poll on a daily basis.
The presidents bounce began the night after Bill Clinton spoke to the convention and received rave reviews. Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the former president. Democrats overwhelmingly believe Clinton and Obama have similar views on how to fix the economy, but few Republicans and unaffiliated voters share that assessment. Among all voters, 59% see Clinton as a better president, while 19% prefer Obama. Democrats are evenly divided. (see the rest at link)

Gallup showed a rise of six points for Obama from +1 Romney last Sunday to +5 Obama today.
Does this foretell an actual bounce for Obama?
Compared to Romney's convention bounced of exactly one point from his Sunday to Sunday? A lead now vanished?
“The presidents bounce began the night after Bill Clinton spoke to the convention and received rave reviews. Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the former president.”
At some point, the Clinton glow is going to fade as they realize Obama is more of the same horrible grind.
The unemployment picture is not going away.
Horse ka ka...gotta be pubbies hanging up on pollsters...yes, I do have a BS in statistics and know how surveys are formed...I don’t trust any of them, even Rasmussen. Money talks.
This indicates to me that most of the ignorant freeloaders think Slick Willie is running again with Sandy Fluke as his running mate. Free condoms for everybody!
They’ve been re-hypnotized.
Somebody just told me that they watched the DNC lie fest and felt “very reassured that the country was headed in the right direction.”
[if ‘straight to hell’ is the right direction, they have a valid point]
I have a theory, now.
People who cannot be hypnotized, like me, are immune to his incessant lies and neurolinguistic programming crap.
Those who support him are wide open to suggestion.
[and totally disconnected from reality]
Romney is going to have to kick it up a notch. Since Romney opened up on Newt in Florida, this has been his race to lose, and right now he’s losing! Romney’s potomac two step on the economy is not helping, people want to hear how he will fix things. His Vision that he “can get this done” can only go so far, “Vision without Execution is Hallucination.” ~Thomas Edison
66% have a favorable oppinion of Clinton. That means only 34% of the people in this country use their brain. That also means this country is in deep trouble.
The DNC spoke to people who want to be given things and that want the government to run their lives. They heard just what they wanted to hear. As that group grows in numbers, the tipping point toward socialism is not far off.
If you think this is bad, wait until Rasmussen releases his Generic Congressional Ballot poll and ObamaCare poll tomorrow. I suspect the Dems will be up by at least 5 points and support for repeal of 0bamamCare will underwater for the first time. I also suspect 0bama will sprint out to a 52%-42% lead. The trend is heavily moving in his favor.
We may not want to admit it, but the Democrat convention was a rousing success. Yes it’s message was anti God, anti Israel, pro leftism, pro baby killing and pro freebies, but sadly that is where a majority of Americans now stand. This is 0bama Nation......and it is an abomonation.
God will punish us severely
It makes the first debate crucial.
66% of whom?
....so I guess the new buzz word is "unaffiliated" since Odungo lost 16% of the "indies" with snake heads internal poll
So,come October 1st do we start to panic if Romney does not lead?
This will come down to pretty simple arithmatic and these polls mean nothing. All Romney has to do is hold onto the states that McAmnesty carried in 2008 and win a few that Obama carried like Florida, Ohio, Virginia and NC and Romney is the next president. That is exactly what will happen if both candidates numbers stay in the 40s through election day. Conservatives did not come out in force for McAmnesty in 2008 and he got no where near the conservative votes that Bush got in 2004. Obama is so damn bad and despised by all republicans that Romney will get more votes than McAmnesty got four years ago. Coupled that with Obummer not getting nearly as many black votes, hispanic, and Catholic votes (because he has pissed off everybody), and therefore not coming close to his vote total four years ago and folks we have a pretty convincing win for Romney. Now if Obama starts consistently polling higher than 50%, we are in a heap of damn trouble, because that would indicate that there are more braindead socialists in this country than red-blooded Americans and this grand experiment in democracy called the USA has ended after 250 years and went the way of ancient Rome.
“66% have a favorable oppinion of Clinton”
I absolutely refuse to believe this poll. He has a 66% favorable rating if the ones being asked are democrats. I know of not one single republican that would speak highly of this shyster, womanizing, serial rapist Clinton. Not a one.
Other polls the last few years, not connected to political races, show the nation becoming more pro-life. So I don't think that part's right. But the pro-baby-murder contingent is as loud as ever.
If this doesn’t get close soon, I’m gonna stop sending money to Romney. No sense throwing good money after bad.
Youth vote and I am not kidding. There are those who were 17 when Obama was elected and now are 20 and 21 years old who hated the fact that they couldn’t vote for him then and are voting for him now. The ones who he pissed off that did vote for him and are sitting this one out are simply being replaced by the new ones.
Romney/Ryan have zero attack on the ground for the youth vote. They are being completely shut out and you have schools that are filled with teachers that are filling their heads with pro-Obama garbage.
Obama is nowhere near as popular as he was in 2008, but he is going to hold Florida and likely Ohio and that spells trouble for team Romney. Romney will likely regain Virginia and North Carolina for the Republicans but not having Florida and Ohio means he is going to have to pull off a miracle win in Wisconsin and New Hampshire and Maine all 3 are in play for him.
The Clinton effect. He has to ride the coat tails of an ex-president from the 90’s to get a bounce. Pretty pathetic when you think about it.
