Let's keep this topic EXTREMELY SIMPLE. Before the RNC, Bush and Kerry were tied at 47% each (as far as I remember, maybe I'm wrong). Right before the RNC, Bush got a 2 point bounce. Now today after the convention, polls are showing Bush has gotten an additional 9 point bounce. This leaves the new poll (was conducted by the Times I think) as: Bush 52 Kerry 41 Other ?? (didn't catch it in time) So, the point of this topic- NO BUSH BASHING NO KERRY BASHING I just want your thoughts on the boost. It is definitely much larger than the boost Kerry got from the DNC (which was almost none IIRC). Will this boost last? Is it a bad sign for Kerry? Should it be brushed off as nothing? Discuss!
