That turned out to be a false report.
However, I'd say the RNC convention was more like a Nuremberg rally.
The real RNC Convention took place down the street.

DNC convention = 5-6 point bounce
RNC convention = 8-13 point bounce, energizes the base, almost entirely wipes out Obama's gender advantage (according to the two polls with cross-tabs on the question), and neutralizes Obama's chief platform (namely that McCain = Bush).

Politically, I'd take the RNC convention.

WASHINGTON — John McCain bested Barack Obama 50-46 percent among registered voters in the latest USA Today/Gallup poll, jumping 11 points over his previous showing and taking his biggest lead since January.

McCain’s showing is credited in part to a well-received Republican Convention last week fueled largely by the surprise pick of McCain’s vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin. The numbers out Monday show McCain wiped out a 7-point lead Obama received after the Democratic convention two weeks ago.

The numbers are drawing scorn in the Chicago headquarters of Obama for President.

“Up or down, we believe national polls are meaningless,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton told FOX News.

Other Democrats, some of whom support and occassionally advise Obama, and others on the outside view the numbers as a startling reversal of fortune and a sign of potential danger to come.

While it’s true Obama’s campaign has invested little energy in analyzing national polls, it has closely tracked two national numbers: is Obama ahead of McCain on the econmoy and is he an agent of “change.”

Monday’s USA Today poll shows McCain has closed the week-before advantage on the economy from 19 points in Obama’s favor to just 3 points now.

Three Democrats contacted by FOX News called this a seriously negative development, one they believe the Obama camp must reverse in the coming week.

The Obama camp had no comment on the junior senator from Illinois’ sudden loss of momentum on economic matters and what, if any, changes in strategy it might trigger.

Democrats say they are more enthusiastic than Republicans to vote this year. However, that number had been a 20-point differential with Democratic enthusiasm peaking at 67 percent compared to Republicans at 47 percent. Now, 60 percent of Republicans say they are enthusiastic.

This rise in GOP enthusiasm is again credited to Palin. The Alaska governor’s widely seen speech at the convention was hailed by many conservatives in the party. Palin is scheduled this week to do her first national television interview.

The announcement of her interview caps a weeks of intense press scrutiny of Palin, who has been accused of having little international experience and exaggerating her reformer credentials.

McCain’s campaign has lashed out at coverage of Palin and her family, while Democrats have questioned why the candidate has not been put directly before reporters to answer questions.

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis earlier complained that the media has focused too much on 44-year-old Palin’s personal life. Many of those stories came after McCain’s campaign announced that Palin’s unwed 17-year-old daughter was pregnant.

“Why would we want to throw Sarah Palin into a cycle of piranhas called the news media that have nothing better to ask questions about than her personal life and her children?” Davis said on FOX News. “So until at which point in time we feel like the news media is going to treat her with some level of respect and deference, I think it would be foolhardy to put her out into that kind of environment.”

Palin’s Democratic counterpart, Sen. Joe Biden, a veteran of the Sunday talk show circuit, said she delivered a great speech at the convention, but “her silence on the issues was deafening.”

“She didn’t mention a word about health care, a word about the environment, a word about the middle class. They never parted her lips … so I don’t know where she is on those things.”

The two are scheduled to debate each other on Oct. 2.

McCain adviser Mark Salter said Palin had not been sent out to campaign on her own because McCain enjoyed the excitement she was injecting into his campaign.

“They’re having a good time. We were riding a lot of momentum coming out of the convention. The crowds were large,” said Salter. “The senator himself thought they should continue on for a few days.”

You apparently haven't kept up with the latest news, this was debunked in another thread. It was some Fox news reporters on the grounds who falsely reported those Chinese-made flags as being in the trash to others. So the Boy Scouts operated on a false report. It happens. Those flags were not in the trash but wrapped in trash bags for storage for later use elsewhere.


Ever use giant trash bags to carry stuff around in or for storage? I have.
Doesn't make the contents garbage.

Obamas bounce faided with in hours....ROFLThe presidential candidate whose party has their convention last typically has their bounce last for 2-4 weeks (while at the same time quickly negating the bounce for the party that went first), and the numbers almost always slide back down to where they were before the conventions.

This is not rocket science.

How long did your bounce last?

No, I perceive this is something more, as in, McCain found a way to add in dissafected conservatives who were "undecided" until he put Palin on the ticket. Of course, she was at the top of my short list and I and many conservatives like me are thrilled.

Far cry from Super duper Tuesday when were were deflated, discouraged, and a buch of vagabonds in exile with no voice to champion our cause.

GAME CHANGER DUDE.
