Romney Goes Bouncy Bouncy

Sunday, October 7, 2012


Gov. Mitt Romney is getting a solid post-convention bounce, with his numbers rising in the polls and new money filling his campaign’s coffers.

The Rasmussen Daily tracking poll, which uses a three day rolling average and now has two of its three days using post-debate data, gives Romney a 49-47 percent edge nationally. In Ohio, Obama leads by only one, 50-49 percent. Romney is up 49-47 percent in Florida and 49-48 percent in Virginia.

In the Gallup poll, which incorporates seven days of surveying, the numbers have just started to move back toward Romney, with the gap narrowing nationally today from five to three points, putting Obama ahead 49-46 percent. Obama’s approval rating declined two points, to 50 percent, while his disapproval rating rose two to 45 percent.
