Here's the link Convention Daily edition of my National Journal column for today, which covers the difficulty pollsters will have measuring the "bounce" that Barack Obama gets this week. The short version: There will be many polls this week but no way to measure the bump or bounce that is comparable to past years. So it's probably best to dispense with metaphysical comparisons to years past and just focus on what surveys tell us about what voters are learning and what conclusions they are coming to.
Incidentally, I will be writing two Conventional Daily columns for the National Journal this week (the second will appear on Wednesday morning), and two next week. In exchange for this contribution, I get to be on hand in Denver this week and in Minneapolis next week.
I've been traveling most of today and just got to our work space. Soon I'll be off to wander the hall, and seek out pollsters and their wisdom...
