As incredible as this sounds, what I and others were seeing and feeling on Wednesday and Thursday nights has become reality. Coming out of the Convention McCain-Palin now lead by 5%. Coming out of the Barackopolis on September 2nd, Obama led McCain by 8% (50%-42%), so that is a +13% swing in only one week for McCain-Palin!
When the American public contrasts the rock star appearance at the Barackopolis in Denver with the real sense of what everyday Americans heard from Minneapolis: the need to support our veterans and men and women in uniform to ensure national security, the need for a fresh start on energy independence and policies that will truly lower gas prices and real efforts for working families in the middle class to feel a strengthened U.S. economy through supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs rather than trying to destroy it through the old Liberal Biden-Kennedy tax and spend ideology that even predates the Clintons, it is clear:
America chooses John McCain and Sarah Palin!
Gallup Daily: McCain's Bounce Gives Him 5-point Lead
Leads Obama 49%-44% in first results conducted fully after GOP convention
PRINCETON, NJ -- John McCain leads Barack Obama, 49% to 44%, in the immediate aftermath of the Republican National Convention, according to the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking results.
These results are based on Sept. 5-7 interviewing, and are the first in which all interviews were conducted following the completion of the GOP convention. Immediately prior to the convention's Sept. 1 start, Aug. 29-31 interviewing showed McCain with 43% support among registered voters, compared with 49% today. Thus, Gallup credits McCain with a six-point convention bounce.
