So far there has been no bounce for Barack Obama, according to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll. Although this poll was taken prior to Clinton’s speech. However, is it possible that there may not be a bounce from Clinton’s speech as Honey, Boo Boo tied Slick Willy in the ratings.
(Reuters) – So far, U.S. President Barack Obama has not received much of a bounce yet in popular support from the Democratic National Convention, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found on Thursday.
The latest daily tracking poll found Republican Mitt Romney still clinging to a narrow lead of 45 percent to Obama’s 44 percent among likely voters. Romney had led by 46 percent to 44 percent in Wednesday’s poll.
“We’re not seeing a sort of glimmer, at this point, of a bump,” said Ipsos pollster Julia Clark.
UPDATE I: Don’t expect any bounce after the August 2012 jobs numbers, if anything Obama may get a reverse bounce.
