The Bounce Continues

Gallup concluded most of the interviewing prior to Obama's acceptance speech last night, but Gallup Daily Tracking suggests that the Senator from Illinois has extended his bounce over the Senator from Arizona. Prior to the convention, Obama and McCain were tied at 45 each. As of Thursday evening, Obama led McCain by eight points:

Obama 49%
McCain 41%

Gallup highlights the significance of this margin with this comment:
Obama's largest advantage at any point in the campaign was a 9-point lead recorded July 24-26, so as his party's convention concludes, he is about as strongly positioned as he has been at any point this year.
That's it, baby; let's go win this election!
