No Pre-Convention Bounce

This poll indicates a lack of pre-convention bounce for Kerry. It will be interesting to see if he gets a during- and/or post-convention upswing in poll numbers. I'd imagine that he will to some extent.

The thing that constantly gets me about this is volatility of poll numbers. I guess it just drives home the point that politics is perception (and vice versa). It just boggles the mind to think that so many people allow themselves to be passively informed (a la campaign commercials and the like) that opinion can swing so quickly and easily. It would be somewhat comforting to see people taking the time to investigate (or just read about) the candidates, comparing the finding with their own moral compass and then making a decision.

Am I asking too much? Probably considering that most people don't make it past the first paragraph of an article (and hence these very words may very well be safe from a large percentage of the population =)).
