Bounce? What Bounce?

There's a new dance craze storming though America. It's The Obama Bounce, where everybody listens to the numbing rhetoric and nobody moves.

He's still just three points ahead, exactly where he was before his gazillion dollar convention.

Would Ibe right in believing the lack of bounce represents a major blow to the ObamaMessiah.
Aren't such bounces supposed to be double digits?
It might be worth recalling what bounces other presidential candiadtes received in the past.
I wonder what John McCain will get from his bounce, assuming the convention is not delayed because of the hurricane.

there isn't a bounce & Obama isn't ahead. Counting up the popular vote in the US is as stupid as counting the vote in NZ and ignoring the Maorimander.

The US has a democratic, geographic polity (unlike NZ's rorted MMP).

And McCain is ahead in the electoral college and will only increase his lead.
