    Today's Gallup tracking poll shows Barack Obama continuing to enjoy a convention bounce, and it may still be growing.

    The numbers: Obama 49%, McCain 41%, well outside the ±2% margin of error. Yesterday, Obama was up by a 48%-42% margin, after having fallen behind McCain by two points in Gallup just as the convention was beginning. This morning's Rasmussen poll had Obama moving into a 49%-45% lead.

    Note that this is a three-day sample that is just starting to take into account the impact from Bill Clinton's full-hearted endorsement of Obama, and we have yet to see any polling from after Obama's big speech last night.

    Those polls were conducted before Palin was announced.

    The Rasmussen link doesn't work.

    You expect Palin to draw that many voters? I mean come on. She will get Conservatives to the polls, not moderates or and others. I thought you guys might be counting on McCain speech--ROTF--at the convention to inspire millions!

    McCain will get the moderates to the polls on his own.
