Clinton up 3 Points in Post-Convention Poll

The latest post-convention poll by Morning Consult has revealed that Hillary Clinton is up by 3 points over Donald Trump.

The Hill reports:

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has 43 percent support in the Morning Consult poll released Sunday morning, compared to 40 percent for Trump, the GOP presidential nominee.

One week ago, the billionaire led the former secretary of State 44 percent to 40 percent.

Pollsters noted that almost 1 in 5 voters, or 17 percent, are still undecided, however.

Clinton saw increased support from independent voters and men in the new survey, conducted after last week’s Democratic National Convention. She also has overwhelming support from young voters.

Clinton is now viewed favorably by 43 percent of voters, while 39 percent have a favorable impression of Trump.

Clinton also holds a 5-point lead over Trump when Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson is factored in. In that scenario, Clinton has 41 percent support, compared to Trump with 36 percent and Johnson with 11 percent.

The poll of 1,931 registered voters has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
