Take a look at who's talking and this morning Karl Rove and -- here in the are both talking about the presidential race called -- Take a look at whether President Obama or Mitt Romney received a convention ballots.
There's an -- to study done by two political side as one of Tom Holbrook who goes back and looked at all of the conventions since 64 and Democrats on average -- about a five point balance that's what this one looks like.
And and and we also there's an interesting case because.
There's only the second time in modern history which we've had the conventions back to back so whatever balance.
The Romney get you get a bounce out of having the convention and having people have a couple of days to digest it.
And then you get your balance what Obama in -- Romney didn't have that Obama does people got the -- on Thursday night there wasn't immediately to have -- by the media to the next dimension was coming up.

That -- to the mall out.
And it's not been -- to -- -- that helps the most.
But you know there's a certain presumption in favor of a sitting president it's -- -- I think it's.
You know it's it's it's a big advantage but it's also appropriate and goes along with the burdens of the record you may be carrying two.
But that may be -- part of what accounts for president Obama's buoyancy in the polling at this moment is -- people just don't.
Don't think you know there's only guy could make any difference because it only anybody can.
And the first of those debates that Bill O'Reilly mentioned October 3 in Denver.
