Romney picks up 5 points from convention

Rasmussen also reports that Romney’s poll standing across the “swing states” has improved, and he’s now tied with Obama.

The first major polling firm to measure the polling “bounce” from the Republican National Convention is Rasmussen, which reports that Mitt Romney picked up five points and is now leading President Obama, 47-44.

Rasmussen notes their three-day rolling average does not fully incorporate the benefits of Romney’s acceptance speech or the other events of Thursday night, as two-thirds of the responses used to tabulate their ratings are from Tuesday and Wednesday nights. ¬†Also, there is no meaningful way to fully measure convention “bounce” until the Democrats have taken their turn, and the effects of both conventions upon voter perception have been fully accounted for.

Rasmussen also reports that Romney’s poll standing across the “swing states” has improved, and he’s now tied with Obama 45-45 in those crucial battleground states.
