JAYLY NEWS...Monday Sept 2
As this fight heads into the final 62 days, consider two sets of numbers (both previously presented here):
1. SIZE MATTERS.
In 40 years, no Dem has emerged from his convention with a Poll Bounce smaller than 16 points (and as high as 30).
Obama's, at 8, is half the smallest-ever...hence Obama has set a modern record for post-convention bounce, DOWNWARD.
2. NOT LIBERAL
The most recent reputable national polling on the fundamental political attitudes of American voters asks them "Do you consider yourself Somewhat or Very Liberal, Somewhat or Very Conservative, or Moderate?"
U.S. VOTERS, SELF-DESCRIBED "CONSERVATIVE" BY 2-1.
(This is why the Dem argument "more people are registering as Dems than as Repubs" is virtually insignificant.)
