Wow -How can you go from a tie to +4 in a four day tracking poll in one night? Now, that is some bounce!
Rasmussen shows major movement - and that's before taking into account the impact of Obama's speech.
/Thursday's tracking poll/
O 47 -M 47
/Friday's tracking poll/
O 49 - M 45
Chuck Todd said that if Obama could go from 80% Democratic support to 89% Democratic support, he would gain four points. That might have happened - or these new numbers might also include movement from independents and even Republicans.

This diary will have to be brief, but it looks like thezzyzx's hopes are coming to fruition. Obama has received, so far, a very healthy bounce, thereby burrying the main stream media meme of a party divided

The new Gallup poll is out and Obama picked up three points, putting him ahead of McCain again, albeit by a narrow margin.
But, more importantly, it looks like the Tuesday number was great. Those reflect what happened on Monday night. Gallup says, "a convention bounce may be developing.
BTW, the bounce usually does not fully develop until after the convention.
Gallup's official "post-convention bounce" reading on Obama's support will be based on interviewing conducted Friday through Sunday.
But Gallup notes
With the McCain campaign hinting that it will attempt to dampen an Obama bounce with a quick announcement of the Republican vice presidential nominee on Friday, any effect from the Democratic convention may be short-lived.
Personally, I don't see any of the possible vp picks that are talked about a lot helping McCain much, but I guess...we will see.
Meanwhile, let's get ourselves ready to work for Obama. I'm signed up for a one night a week shift and will see if I can do more. How about you?

The Diageo/Hotline national poll has Obama up by four points.
It was taken August 18-24 with the margin of error at 3.0%. Obama is at 44 percent, McCain at 40, with 13 percent undecided (no third party candidates).

Basically this diary is a poll.
