MITT ROMNEY ISN'T GETTING A CONVENTION BOUNCE

The first polls taken since last week's Republican National Convention show that not only is Mitt Romney failing to get the typical post-convention "bounce," his acceptance speech might be the most poorly received of all-time. The latest Gallup poll released on Monday says that Thursday's speech received the lowest marks from voters than any convention speech since they started asking the question in 1966.

Not surprising. The entire campaign by both parties has been getting low marks, and deservedly so.

Were you polled?

Was I polled?

Polls mean nothing.

Use the common sense measure.
No, I am not adding up the electoral votes of these states. Romney will have the Mid Western states /Bible belt locked up.
He will take the South from SW Texas to Northern Florida. Miami, FL might go for Obama. FL will pull for Romney.
Romney will take far North Eastern states of RI, Maine, NH,V, CT, etc. He will take NJ. Gov. Chrisitie is (R).
WY for Romney. Idaho, ND. SD, AZ, are Romeny's.
Yeah, Obama will get NY and CA.

Did the convention offer anything that we didn't already know? Nah. Neither will Obama's.

Nuthin' to bounce about.

I was wondering though, why Romney didn't hit the campaign trail with vigor to capitalize on the convention momentum but he took two days off instead. What was that about? Is he that certain he's got the election locked up?

I live in a southern red state and I poll based on the chit chat the day after each evenings convention festivities. There was not a peep among the conservatives on the job (which are numerous). The convention caused as much enthusiasm as a bowling ball being dropped in the middle of a sand box.

These adventures afield are quickly erased from Romney’s travel journal whenever there is a screw-up. Remember Romney’s trip to England and Israel? Long forgotten and wasn’t mentioned in Romney’s speech. In Louisiana Romney reportedly told a homeless man to go home and call the authorities.

LOL...reminds me of Joe Biden telling the guy in the wheelchair to stand up and be recognized.

Since poll questions can be construed to mean different things to different people, I don't put much stock in them.
Such as: "Do you think we should do more to bring people together?"

If the poll question is something to the effect of the following, then they are much more than just subjective:

1. Do you plan to vote for candidate "A" or candidate "B"?

2. Do you plan plan to vote in favor of or against prop. "XYZ"?

The above types of questions don't leave much room for interpretation.

I've been polled twice in the last 3 weeks, and the above questions are representative of the types of polling that occurred.

Looks like the number of food stamp users received a healthy post-convention bump :

With only about 6% of the voters undecided, I don't think anybody was expecting much of a bounce.

If your 6% figure is correct, it's just fricking crazy that there will be millions & millions spent on adds by both sides non stop the next two months for that 6% Thank you SC for the Citizens United Decision.

With all those adds running, it makes me want to change the station. Thank goodness for real entertainment like Call Of The Wildman on Animal Planet. Maybe the Turtle Man from Kentucky should run for office. Got to enjoy this guy & his "live action".

The reason there was no bounce is because no one was watching. No one will watch the DNC either.

Possibly a very good point, I know I watched very little of either convention and there was little desire for it to be turned on any of the TVs down at my local watering hole. Also, either through wisdom or lack of interest, there has been little if no discussion about it as well.

My fear is that the election, will hinge on the debates. I have zero faith that Mr. Romney will be able to stand head to toe with the President. This is what people will watch, this is what will bring conversation to the water cooler. I believe this is what will lead to the President's re-election. Not what he has or has yet to accomplish. It has turned into a beauty contest and the Business man is competing with a Rock star.

Ratings wise, Clinton beat the Cowboys-Giants game, but Honey Boo Boo took a chunk out of the coveted 18-49 demographic. Michelle beat Ann by 4 million viewers. Haven't seen the numbers for last night yet. Total for convention vs. convention will be skewed because the GOP cancelled Day 1.

This is exactly what Newt had to say about it a few months ago.

I wouldn't worry. The election is going to turn on Obama's job performance and whether people think a change is warranted with Romney. I believe that the electorate will make this decision and I have said so before. No one outside of his fanbase is buying what O is selling anymore. The more he speaks the less perusasive he tends to be. Romney is a fine debater, as plenty of experience in them and will do fine.

I hope you are correct, but I fear the ignorance of John Q. Voter will rein supreme......
