The evidence continues to pile up. It's now pretty clear that Obama got a 5-7 pt bounce from the convention. CNN shows President Obama up 52-46 among likely voters and 53-45 among registered voters.
Numbers were 48-48 LV, 52-45 RV, prior to the DNC. It seems as though unmotivated Democrats and Dem-leaning independents have been coaxed back into the fray.
Some other excellent news further down in the weeds. From the article:
This year's Democratic event wiped away some of Romney's gains on personal qualities. The Republican nominee's favorable rating increased to 53% after the GOP convention, but fell to 48% one week later after the Democratic event. Meanwhile, Obama rose to 57% in the last week, his highest mark since 2010.Full poll here
Obama also took away Romney's lead on leadership for the country's future. Now 51% of likely voters think Obama has a more optimistic vision for the country's future, compared to Romney at 41%. Last week, however, 43% said Obama was more optimistic, while 47% said the same about Romney.
