Net Obama Convention Bounce: Zero.

As predicted by your humble author.

Given the slobbering and fawning media coverage of Obama's speech and the admitted drama of the moment, it might have been expected that Obama should receive an 8-10 point bounce and be leading this race by 10 or 11 points right now. That simply hasn't happened. It might be due to the fact that Obama's speech, while high drama, contained no lines that anyone still remembers. I'm already struggling to remember one myself. It might be due to the fact that the Palin pick stomped on the convention news cycle, strangled it until the point of death, and then set it on fire and tossed it in a ditch by the side of the road.
