In spite of all the political analysts leading up to the Republican Convention claiming that there was little room for a bounce, Time has come out with the first poll after the convention giving Bush a 52% to 41% (Nader had 3%) lead over Kerry, the largest lead since it became a 2-man race.

For the first time since the Presidential race became a two person contest last spring, there is a clear leader, the latest TIME poll shows. If the 2004 election for President were held today, 52% of likely voters surveyed would vote for President George W. Bush, 41% would vote for Democratic nominee John Kerry, and 3% would vote for Ralph Nader, according to a new TIME poll conducted from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2.

Now this was while the convention was still going on. I'll be waiting to see the polls starting after the convention ended to get a clearer look. At any rate, people are beginning to see a clear distinction between the two candidates and they like Bush better. Bush is a straight shooter. He stands up for what he believes in and the people always knows where he stands and, frankly, he's just plain likeable. This will go a long way with the people come November.

I saw this originally on Instapundit via Powerline.

Blogs For Bush mentions this as breaking news.
