Obama Bouncing: Gallup 8/31/08

According to Bloomberg, Senator Obama has "jumped to his biggest lead since late July in public opinion polls." In a USA Today/Gallup poll (8/25-28) Obama leads Senator McCain 49 to 41.

USA Today
/Gallup wasn't quite so kind to Governor Palin: in a poll "conducted Aug. 29, about 40 percent of respondents said they consider Palin, a 44-year-old first-term governor, qualified to be president." Apparently, that's the lowest result since President George H. W. Bush selected Dan Quayle. Ouch. Even so, let's wager that the public's perception of the Governor will improve. How much and how quickly this occurs depends, naturally, on her upcoming political appearances.
