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

The bump continues, as Obama extends his lead by 2 points today. However, these numbers don’t include his speech last night, which should push these numbers higher. The details… Obama’s significant lead over McCain almost certainly reflects the effects of the Democratic National Convention. The two presidential candidates were tied at 45% in the last […]

He thought it showed a toughness we haven’t seen yet from the candidate. Of note, I’ve always thought that Todd is one of the savvier, intellectually honest pundits out there.

“People around the world have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power.” – Bill Clinton in an incredibly well received speech. I was impressed as well. This is a man I’ve lost a lot of respect for over the past 8 months, but last night’s […]
