This from Gallup, too.

Obama Approval Rating Jumps 10 Points After Democratic Convention
By: Jason Easley
September 7, 2012

According to the Gallup Daily Tracking Poll, President Obama’s approval rating has jumped a net 10 points from 45%/48% to 52%/43% since the Democratic Convention.

Gallup found that President Obama has gone from a net (-1) with a job approval rating of 45% and job disapproval rating of 46% after the Republican convention to a net (+9). Obama’s job approval rating now stands at 52% with his disapproval rating at 43%. In contrast, Mitt Romney saw no bounce in his numbers after the Republican convention. In fact, Romney actually lost a point of support in the head to head match up with the president.
