The Obama Convention Bounce is Gone … Obama Gallup Poll Lead Down to 1 Over Romney

 

Where has the Obama Democrat Convention bounce go? Can you say it’s completely gone the way of the DoDo bird. The most recent Gallup tracking poll has President Barack Obama with only a 1 point lead over Mitt Romney, far within the margin of error and basically a statistical tie. Not only has Obama’s lead fallen, so has his approval rating. What happened to that great Obama convention bounce?  To paraphrase as one of my favorite obscure 1980′s bands Chilliwack:

Gone gone gone, its been gone so long
Its been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, its been gone so long
Its been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, its been gone so long
gone gone gone so long

As reported at The Hill, Obama’s 7% lead following the DNC convention is gone.Can you say “vanished” without a trace!

Obama’s lead widened to 7 points in the days following the Charlotte, N.C., convention earlier this month, but Tuesday’s data show the race returning the level where it’s been throughout most of the contest.

Prior to the conventions, Gallup’s poll had been almost completely static, with each candidate averaging 46 percent since May.

The president’s approval rating also dipped back below 50 percent for the first time since the convention.

Forty-nine percent said they approve of the job the president is doing, compared to 45 who say they disapprove. That’s still slightly better than the last few months, when Obama hovered around break-even and occasionally dipped into negative territory.
