Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said this morning that it might not just be the convention that gave President Obama a small poll bounce, but Friday’s jobs report.
Gallup’s daily tracking poll has Obama at 49 percent, a two-point bump from a week ago, while Mitt Romney went from 46 percent to 44 percent. In a Reuters/Ipsos poll of likely voters released Sunday, Obama got 47 percent to Romney’s 43 percent.
“I think it could be partially the convention, somewhat the economic news. It’s been a positive experience,” Durbin said on CNN. [...]
Still, Durbin said that “seventeen angry old white men” in the super PAC world are still raising millions for Romney.
