Travel Bounce?

The Gallup daily tracking poll for today (July 27) gives Obama a nine point lead over McCain. This is the largest margin for either candidate since Gallup began its Obama-McCain match-ups in mid March of this year. Although Obama has consistently led the daily tracking poll in recent weeks, his margins have been in the 2-3 point range.
Friday's Rasmussen tracking poll showed Obama with a five point edge, which was also an improvement in his performance in that poll in recent weeks.
Could these be the first hints of a bounce in Obama's numbers as a result of his highly successful travels to the Middle East and Europe? No doubt we will see more polls in the coming days to help answer that question. Personally, I'm feeling pretty good about it.
