Two polls show no post-convention bounce for @MittRomney


The Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll shows President Obama regained a narrow lead over Mitt Romney despite the attention of the Republican National Convention, 44% to 43%.

Romney was ahead by one point on Friday and two points on Thursday.

“This wasn’t a lightning bolt convention,” said pollster Julia Clark. “Comparatively speaking, this was a more muted convention in general… So it doesn’t surprise me that (the bump in polls) wasn’t a great deal bigger.”

The Gallup tracking poll shows no bounce whatsoever.
