Monday, August 02, 2004 : Poll: Tepid Bounce for Kerry : Poll: Tepid Bounce for Kerry: "Slight Bounce
Poll Shows Kerry Gained Limited Support After DNC
By Gary Langer

Aug 2, 2004 John Kerry took a tepid bump in support out of his nominating convention, gaining an advantage over President Bush among registered voters but not so among those most likely to vote.

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Kerry's gain is smaller than usual for a convention bounce, testament to the unusually polarized race, with many voters committing early to each candidate. Still, it comes at a crucial time for the Democratic candidate, countering a loss of momentum leading up to his convention.
The Massachusetts senator gained five to eight points among registered voters on issues and attributes alike, while Bush lost about as many. And after a convention that focused heavily on his military experience in Vietnam, Kerry leads Bush as 'better qualified to be commander-in-chief,' by 52 percent to 44 percent. "
