Enjoy your last bounce

The Washington Post has a good poll for President Obama - leading by seven points among registered voters.
Not as bad as Public Policy Polling's recent work - only a four-point advantage for Democrats in the pool.
The main headscratcher - Obama leading 51-41 among independents. Much better than his 2008 numbers when it was Hope and Change instead of Moan and Complain.
But it could be Obama's last poll bounce of 2012.
The anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden is one of the few events that brings good thoughts about Obama. As time passes, the good feelings will fade and the woeful economy will return to center stage.
Conventions may provide a bounce, but this could be Obama's high point of the election.
