Gallup: Obama Up By 7

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Biden, Conventions, Democrats, McCain, Palin, Republicans

The Obama/Biden ticket has maintained a pretty significant lead the past 8 days since the DNC really began in earnest and Gallup was tracking the response. So it’s telling that after 3 days of the RNC, there’s pretty much no change in the lead.

The details…

Thursday’s interviewing will be the first to reflect the immediate impact of Palin’s speech, and the coming days will give a truer measure of the effect the GOP convention — including McCain’s acceptance speech tonight — is having on voters. Obama got a four percentage point increase in his share of the vote in Gallup Poll Daily tracking coming out of the Democratic convention last week, establishing a lead over McCain after the two had been exactly tied immediately prior to last week’s convention.

More tomorrow…
