pollster for Mitt Romney's campaign on Monday dismissed a slew of polls showing a significant bounce for President Obama following the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Neil Newhouse, who is also a top strategist for Team Romney, said that the bounce is nothing more than a "sugar high," and that the dynamic of the race remains the same. Analysts interpreted Newhouse's objections as a bid to nip an emerging consensus in the media that Romney has fallen behind badly in the race, with polls from CNN, Reuters/Ipsos, Rasmussen, and Gallup showing Obama with a clear lead.
