  •  Well, Kerry had a similarly long amount of time (3+ / 0-)

    after his convention to enjoy a bounce, but none occurred. This is all about matching funds. Kerry got screwed when he had 1 month longer than Bush to go on the federal funds. That said, the convention should still have been earlier. Mid August would not have been too bad. Regardless, the conventions usually cancel each other out.

    The problem is when you get no bounce like Kerry and your opponent does get a bounce.

    If your name was George Walker instead of George Walker Bush, your candidacy would be a joke.
