The race for president has reverted to pre-convention numbers with President Barack Obama leading GOP challenger Mitt Romney by one point in the latest Gallup tracking poll.

Before the Democratic Convention began Obama led Romney 47 to 46 percent among registered voters. Tuesday’s tracking poll showed the race had reverted to those numbers.

In the period after the convention Obama had stretched his lead to as much as seven points, leading Romney 50 to 43 percent.

Convention bounces are typically short-lived. Gallup reports that Romney received no convention bounce.
