The latest gallup poll released today puts Barack Obama up by 6 points over Republican rival John McCain.
Is this just a typical post convention bounce taking shape? I would argue that these new numbers are the product of Clinton supporters moving over toward Obama and beginning to accept that he is the party nominee. Some 74% of Democrats now feel that the party is unified behind Sen. Obama.
It will be very interesting to see how Barack Obama's speech this evening, the most important of his relatively short political career is received and whether a McCain VP pick tomorrow will halt any momentum leaving Denver.
