No bounce for Romney

If you follow presidential politics, you probably know that candidates get a bounce upwards in support after their party's national convention. For Republicans, it should be about a 5 point bounce in the polls. That's according to Ed Schultz, who used Gallup Poll numbers. (September 3, 2012 "The Ed Show."

According to the same show, the Gallup Poll showed no bounce at all for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Look you've got to start trending up if you want to win. I recall how Republican George H. W. Bush started to move up after the Republican convention in 1988. He went from seven points down to four points ahead. Romney didn't get a bounce or much of any movement. That's a sign of a weak candidate. Here's Ed Schulz's video piece.
