Republicans in a panic about Obamas post-convention bump will probably find this mornings ABC News/Washington Post poll reassuring:
Last weeks Democratic National Convention helped President Obama improve his standing against Republican Mitt Romney, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, but did little to reduce voter concern about his handling of the economy.
The survey shows that the race remains close among likely voters, with Obama at 49 percent and Romney at 48 percent, virtually unchanged from a poll taken just before the conventions.
But among a wider sample of all registered voters, Obama holds an apparent edge, topping Romney at 50 percent to 44 percent, and has clear advantages on important issues in the campaign when compared with his rival.
The survey highlights why Obama continues to try to frame the election as a choice between himself and Romney, while Romney would like it to be a referendum on the presidents record.

The whole ABC polling samples are a joke.
“Thirty-two percent of registered voters in this poll identify themselves as Democrats, 26 percent as Republicans and 37 percent as independents, continuing a record four-year preponderance of independents in partisan preferences. The split is almost identical among likely voters, 33-27-36 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents. Democrats outnumbered Republicans by 7 points in the 2008 election.”
OK now things start to return to normal.
Now Mitt get your VP out there!
Who in the world ARE the people who are so easily swayed by a convention? Are there really people who are so brain-dead and wishy-washy that a glitzy show can convince them to change their views for a couple of days and then they revert to their previous views? The whole notion of a “bump” from these events seems ridiculous.
Nope, I don't buy this one any more than the Gallup and Rasmussen polls. The numbers are too close. Look at the polls around the end of next week to see where we really are. (And start to know if we should buy more stocks, or more ammo.)
Never again will I allow the damn polls to so discomfort and destroy my morale as they did yesterday.
Screw them all.
Some are weak minded, but most of what you see is the media trying to get some momentum for 0bama.
They must have some inside info showing a big slump and don’t want to be exposed for the shills they are when that slump comes out soon, so they’re tempering the decline with this news.
As I read the news snippet, I was about to ask the same question. "Oooh...a shiny object; I want one of those!"

I guess the Choom gang high has worn off.
“Now Mitt get your VP out there!”
...exactly! Mitt, you go yachting and have a cocktail. Ryan, get to work!
ABC and Washington Compost poll? Given the credibility of these two DNC propogandist tools, as well as all of the other “polling” created over the last few weeks, I’d say these results are about as credible as a Ted Kennedy neck brace.
Ban the polls, if they won’t we can.
The real point is that there never was a real bump. The MSM and the dems manufactured a bump coming off the rat convention to make it appear Odumbarse was going to sail to a win. So just give up people. Obama wins. Yeah right./sarc
They did this and people fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
I guess that is why they do what they always do.
Because they can.
That's a damned good question.
If these polls purport to be an accurate representation of the populace, that would mean hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people switched their opinion twice over a few day period.
I just don't buy it. These polls are rigged.
I told people this for weeks... Obama will get a breif bounce from the CLINTON speech... this will be Clinton NASTALGIA, nothing more and will fade in days.
So, Friday Polling shows a bounce, everyones on a bit of a high, the job report comes out, and poof gone. Its nonsense folks, everyone needs to relax.
Nothing changed with the conventions, other than Clinton showed up Obama at the Convention, and while the Clinton lovers and others got a little high from nastalgia, nothing changed.
This race isn’t close, I don’t believe it for one second. Obama is down BIG in liberal bastions like California by huge amounts.. you think if he’s down 15 or 20 points from 2008 in CALIFREAKINFORNIA, he’s somehow up and holding his own in places like IA and OHIO, WI, NC, FL??? Come on folks, none of this passes the smell test, not a damned bit of it.
I guess they felt the ridicule these wild polls are receiving and for good reason. Their polls are worthless.
To them it’s like the 2010 midterms never happened.
“What? What’s that you say? Republicans won a record number of house and senate seats? Well, that wasn’t a PRESIDENTIAL election. No reason to think the mood of the country has shifted....”
What a relief. It’s good to hear that the temporary bump of DNC rise of dems in poll voter sampling, and lowering of republicans in poll voter sampling, is now returning back to actual levels.
