Gallup: Obama Sees Modest Increase In Approval After Convention; Increases Lead Over Romney
I don’t expect this to last very long, especially after the job numbers.
President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party look as if they are getting at least a preliminary bounce from their convention. Today’s (Friday, Sept. 7) Gallup Daily tracking update puts Obama’s job approval rating at 52%, the highest it has been since May 2011, after the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Not a bad place to be. And he certainly made sure to remind folks that bin Laden wasn’t around any more.
Here’s how it looks head to head with Mitt…
Obama has also moved to a 48% to 45% lead over Mitt Romney among registered voters in the election tracking, up from Obama’s 47% to 46% margin over the last nine days.
I have to think that lead is within the margin of error. Still, any bump is good news for either camp. Plus, the fact that Romney wasn’t able to overtake Obama after his convention is telling.
More as it develops…
