Tonight, the Democratic National Convention is beginning. First Lady Michelle Obama will be speaking and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will be delivering the keynote address. President Clinton and Senate nominee Elizabeth Warren will be speaking tomorrow. Finally, Vice President Biden and President Obama will be speaking on Thursday.

According to the latest CNN-ORC polling of likely voters, Mitt Romney and President Obama are tied at 48%. This is up one percent from the last poll. Mitt Romney’s convention bounce of one percent is higher than Sen. Kerry’s in 2004, but smaller than then-Senator Obama’s in 2008.

According to the Democrats, there is no decision yet on whether or not President Obama’s speech will be moved. President Obama is currently scheduled to speak at the outdoor Bank of America Stadium. There are, however, forecasts for rain during President Obama’s speech.
