    Now that the conventions have passed, it seems clear that the democrats have gotten a bounce from theirs, while the GOP has not.

    Why do you think that is? And do you think it's going to be dispositive of the election outcome.

    Reminder: This is the CDZ. Thanks for guiding yourself accordingly.... on both sides of the aisle.

    Hard for Romney to get a bounce for trotting out the same stale ideas that George W. Bush ran on.

    that might be. but mccain's ideas weren't exactly new and he got a bounce from his.

    palin's star power? mccain a more appealing person?

    I agree the Akin quote hurt them. It seems Mitt should have removed himself from that discussion by just acknowledging it was extreme and silly and saying he doesn't understand what makes some people tick.

    But Paul Ryan is like GOP royalty. I'd think they'd be thrilled with him.

    The democratic convention started immediately after the republican convention. Whatever bounce the GOP might have gotten was submerged in the coverage of the democrat convention. obama's bounce is already fading, he's lost three points just since yesterday. Nothing much is going to change until the debates. Minds are made up, now can they be changed?

    I'd say it was Palin that time. Ryan isn't exactly someone anyone would get excited over.

    I think it has a lot to do with timing, the RNC was followed by the DNC so people were left thinking about the DNC. Also, the speakers, the RNC had Eastwood, however Clinton did a much better job of setting up the presidents position than Eastwood did for Romney.
