Sep 4 - Obama favored to win. 75 % of Re-Election
 

 
We’re reaching the point of diminishing returns in analyzing Mitt Romney’s convention bounce. But we can say two things almost for certain. First, Mr. Romney very probably got a bounce. And second, it’s a below-average bounce by historical standards.

What’s trickier to figure out is whether the bounce failed to live up to reasonable expectations, in a way that ought to reduce the odds we’d a.ssign to Mr. Romney winning the election in November.

First, let’s try a simple way of measuring the bounce. In the table below, I’ve included every poll that has been released since Mr. Romney’s acceptance speech last Thursday which also released a preconvention baseline for comparison.

There is some noise in this data: Mr. Romney gets everything from a seven-point bounce (in a Public Policy Polling survey of Michigan) to what technically is an “anti-bounce” of negative two points (in the Gallup national tracking poll). But if you just average the polls together, it comes out to a three-point gain.

You can get pickier than this if you like. For instance, in Michigan, I’m comparing a post-convention poll that screened for likely voters with a preconvention poll that did not, which is not totally kosher.

Still, a bounce somewhere in the two-to-three-point range looks about right. Or if you want to play it safe, since we may still get a few more polls on this, it’s probably somewhere in the range of one to four points.

That’s a small bounce by historical standards. If we take Mr. Romney’s bounce to be two and a half points, it would be the third-smallest for a challenger since 1968, behind John Kerry in 2004 (roughly one point) and Mr. Obama in 2008 (about two). By contrast, the average bounce for the challenger since 1968 is around eleven points.

It doesn't matter if Obama wins anyway. Republicans have filibustered tons of sh*t. One President can't make enough change alone.

That's popular vote which means nothing. OBama is going to win the democratic states. Romeny is going to win the republican states. There's about 7 tossup states. If Obama wins Florida, election is over. Romney needs to win at least 5 of the 7 swing states to have a chance or get one of the democratic states to lean right by means of voter suppression and/or apathy among minorities voters.

exactly, romney is out for the interests of people living wealthy or comfortable (above average).... republicans are all about "The Hardworking Americans", they could careless about anyone else regardless!!! in simplest terms they don't want to hear excuses from people

Good Obama doesn't appeal to me but I will choose Obama every time if he's going against someone with Romney's mannerisms.

Ok I got it now. My mistake.

But what about if it doesn't matter because just like McCain, the social arena is so staged that it is going to guarantee Obama reelection, just like the first time? When you got republicans robbing their own candidates to keep "their guy" in, to ensure that Obama will get another term, and finish his plan of invading foreign countries, crippling the economy further and bring our country into a full on military state?

So you're saying the GOP logammed Congress and refused to pass any economic measures proposed by Obama to help him win so he can invade foreign countries like Bush?

I'm saying GOP and Democrat doesn't mean sh*t. It's all a false. A charade. Nobody in the world was going to vote for McCain with Palin after G.W.'s term. And the media coverage ensured that. And 4 years later, we have expanded Bush's policies and kept on the same track. Why did the RNC deduct electoral votes from Maine? Because the powers that be want to keep Romney in there to ensure an Obama victory.

It's just a shame people get so caught up in party affiliation and campaign promises
