There is a new PPP poll out today that shows Obama leading Romney in North Carolina by 1 point, 49% to 48%. Obama's job approval rating is a nifty 50% and 47% of respondents think the Democrats had a better convention than the Republicans. Okay, Obama is getting a convention bounce but why would 47% of the respondents think that that concatenation of gaffs with God and Jerusalem rammed down the throats of pro Palestinian atheists was a good convention? It's simple. Forty-seven percent of the respondents were Democrats, 34% were Republicans and 20% were independents. Don't be chicken little. The sky is not falling. Obama is only up 1.8% in the Real Clear Politics average of polls.
