5. There's ALWAYS going to be a post-convention bounce.

It happens to every candidate, on either side. So I'm not paying much attention to this one. But I'm mighty glad WE get to go second. We can beat that Trump bounce back down easily. The DNC convention will generate enough news that there'll be TONS more to talk about and report about than simply all the adverse stuff, distractions, enemy dirty-tricks and assorted attempts at rat-fucking, all of it. We've got some of the best speakers in the business, starting with a sitting President who's POPULAR, whose poll numbers are above 50% and rising (as opposed to what we saw last week - when the last two Presidents AND nominees on the other side didn't even want to show up), a convention with A-list guests and speakers and decorative, notice-me celebrities (as opposed to the B- and lower "luminaries" we saw last week). We have loads of popular name-politicians who WANT to be here (as opposed to what we saw last week).

So as the convention gets going, I expect - and HOPE - that there's plenty more news to be generated that's all positive, plus an upbeat tone to the whole thing, that will more than counteract any convention bounce the bad guys got.
