The Obama Bounce

It will be very interesting to see what kind of bounce the Obama-Biden ticket receives from Denver. The average convention bounce is around 8-9%.

There is some concern in the Obama camp that the bounce will not be as significant as they had hoped.

With speculation swirling about the pending announcement (Friday) of McCain's VP choice coinciding with their final convention extravaganza there is fear the announcement will detract some of the attention they had hoped would be focused on them.

Then, immediately following the Democratic Convention, the four-day Republican Convention begins.

This is the first time the two conventions have been scheduled back-to-back. Usually there is a week or two separating them which allows the first convention to build and sustain momentum.
