Obama rises in polls after convention

President Obama got a modest bounce from last week’s Democratic National Convention, pulling ahead of Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to polls released Monday by CNN and Gallup.

Obama leads Romney, 52 percent to 46 percent, among likely voters in a CNN survey taken between Friday and Sunday, the three days after the convention. A poll taken in the four days before the Democratic convention -- which were also the four days after the Republican convention -- showed the two candidates tied at 48 percent.
