Gallup Tracking Poll Shows McCain Ahead 48-45%.

In the 3-day Gallup tracking poll released today, McCain leads Obama by 3% — 48% to 45%. This is a 5-point jump from yesterday's tracking poll, which means that Saturday's respondents were a staggering 14-16% more favorable to McCain than Wednesday's respondents (polled before Palin's speech).

The Rasmussen tracking poll showed a smaller, but still large, bounce of 8-10% between Wednesday's respondents and Saturday's. It appears that McCain/Palin is getting a big bounce from the convention.
