The Rasmussen polls released today reported the end of Obama's post convention bounce and it may have been done in by Romney's response to the the violent attacks of our embassies which began on 9/11.
Beginning with the Convention (which started 9/4) Obama's three day average started to rise in the polls hitting a peak in the 9/6 to 9/9 three day average period. As the President's share of voters went up the Romney numbers started to decline from the prime-time convention attacks (I meant the speakers not the mainstream media but they helped also). Romney's %of the vote was stuck at 45% for a few days.
Beginning with the 9/12 numbers (covering 9/10-12) Romney's numbers began to rise while Obama's began to fall. Today's poll shows which started the day the violence began shows Romney with a small 3% lead (essentially back to where they were as the DNC convention began).
Folks a few days does not make a trend and neither service asked about the either candidate's reaction to the horrible few days in the Mid-East, but this is something that needs to be watch over the next few days.
