A Definite Convention Bounce for Trump

You have Russians hacking the DNC. The Democrats in chaos. And the successful conclusion of the Republican convention. Trump gets a bounce.

I actually listened to that speech on Thursday and couldn’t believe he’d get a giant bounce, but in a race that had polling averages already under +3% for Hillary, Trump got about a 3 point bounce.

The GOP is already buzzing about this as proof of his winning. As I wrote this morning, the Russians are going all out to make it happen and the GOP now has additional enthusiasm for its candidate in a way the Democrats currently do not. In fact, the Democrats had unity and it is breaking down.

But, if the Democrats can unite this week in Philly, she who must not be named will get a bounce too. Either way, America is screwed.
