I don't believe that only 3% of voters are undecided, but that's what Time/CNN is reporting. Given this is, according to Mark Halperin, the first national poll conducted entirely since Palin was named McCain's running mate, it's worth noting simply because it indicates that either Obama got no convention bounce or else the Palin pick has offset it.
But "indicates" is the operative word. This is just one poll, and a weekend poll, at that. Let the dust settle with Palin on the ticket, let them finish the GOP convention, and then let's watch the polls for a week or two thereafter. Check the daily tracking polls from Rasmussen and Gallup reported on Thursday, Sept. 11 -- the first day with three full weekdays of polling after the RNC -- and that will be a good measure of where the race stands as the main part of the campaign season begins. And then wait for battleground state polls after that.
