    the only kind of bounce Mittens knows is of the dead cat variety.

    VP Choice? Thump

    Convention Bounce? Double Thump

    Debate Bounce? Thump tha thump, thump!

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a major correction in the polling over the next week, especially after Big Joe wipes the floor with poor little Paulie!

      the debate bounce is real and perhaps slightly muted by the UE rate.  but it cannot happen again.  if obama turns in another disaster, the enthusiasm gap will explode.

      On DailyKos nothing is significant unless Obama doesn't do it.

        Personally, I gave them both an F.  Romney for misrepresenting facts, and Obama for failing to call him on it.  It was the worst Presidential debate I have ever witnessed and I have seen many.  That said, I have seen no evidence that the debate mattered much in terms of moving numbers.  I would conjecture that is because there are few undecideds and the performance of both candidates offered little clarity to the indie, undecided type voter.
