New national polls suggest that McCain has gotten a solid bounce out of the GOP convention. But let’s keep a few things in mind:
1) These polls suggest a race that is dead-even.
2) This is close to the high water-mark for the Republicans: all three polls were taken entirely after the convention.
3) There is no record of a convention bounce NOT fading.
In other words, Obama is still in very good shape. This hardly means anything is in the bag, but with the fundamentals so strongly leaning Democratic, I’d rather be in our position than theirs. They’ve had a week’s worth of uninterrupted campaign ads, and they still can’t establish a lead.
Give money. Go to Nevada. Go to New Mexico. Go to Virginia. Go to Ohio. Call. Knock on doors. We’re going to win this.
