McCain Takes Lead After Convention Bounce
John McCain is now leading or tied with Barack Obama in every national survey conducted after the Republican Convention:
Let’s presume that the 10 point lead in Gallup is a wild outlier unless and until we see anything like that result in other polls.
One presumes this bounce is primarily a reaction to the choice of Sarah Palin as the VP choice and her speech to the convention Wednesday. McCain’s performance was fine but it’s hard to imagine that it was responsible for a sizable movement.
The head-to-heads are interesting but the Electoral College maps are more useful. The usual suspects have yet to update theirs.
