What it did mainly was help energized some of the Republicans that don't trust Romney
There's a boost, as has been the case historically. The bigger question will be does that boost sustain them in swing states and move undecideds to the Republican ticket? I
I was there at the convention and the enthusiasm was electric. The momentum from this will continue to election day.
Many of the party faithful will be tuned into the convention, Romney will see an increase in support that the Republicans were hoping for however how that increase is parlayed remains to be seen. The average citizen has not given the convention the attention that would push Romney over the top in and of its self.
A temporary boost in the polls.
GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney will get a modest boost from the Republican Convention because it's the nature of such gathering amid the media spotlight.
Beyond "Obama's a failure" the Republican theme this year is an incoherent mess.
A minor ephemeral boost to be followed by the same for Pres Obama next week.
The vast majority of Americans have already made up their minds about this election and who they'll be supporting. Now they are just looking for confirmation that they made the right choice. Unless something crazy happens in the convention, it won't make Romney supporters jump ship or Obama supporters suddenly decide they've made a bad decision. There may be a sliver of undecided voters who could be swayed, but these folks are usually so nonpolitical anyway, it's unlikely that they're hanging on every word anyway and probably won’t make up their mind until election day.
A modest but temporary boost.
Ann Romney's speech helped Mitt. I still think Obama will prevail. And Michelle is prettier than Ann. Just sayin'.
Convention will provide a slight boost, but not a lasting one.
PREDICTION: The R&R ticket will have their highest polling numbers the first week of September and glide steadily down from there.
Romney and Co. gets a 3-4 point bump that fades like it always does after a convention.
All depends on the media spin. If the national media behaves like the Tribune they'll spin the convention into a five point drop.
Mitt seems to be getting a little bump already, with national polls now saying they're neck-and-neck.
The Dems campaign is going to be relentlessly dour, negative, and divisive. It's hard to imagine that it won't suffer in comparison to the positive, hopeful messages coming out of Tampa. They might have better musical acts, though.
In the internet age, too many people are already decided early on. Conventions won't make a big difference anymore.
Doesn't seem to be giving the ticket a 'boost' per se. So in that sense a neutral outcome could actually viewed as a negative. It would depend on how the DNC convention goes.
It will be a modest boost but the Dems will get one also. It will even out.
Constant access to the media and viewers will give him a boost but it may not be long lived.
Their convention will cause the Republicans to rally around the anti-everyone and anti-everything message, but will do nothing to convince the American people that the Republican party represents much more than the white and wealthy.
The party does not walk away unified, however, there will be a noticeable bump as the GOP finally has their official candidate.
