If you’re wondering how successful the Democratic National Convention was for Hillary Clinton, it turns out it was, in the words of her opponent, Donald Trump, YUUUUUUUGE!
A new poll from RABA Research shows that Clinton is the beneficiary of a 10-point convention bounce and now leads Trump by a margin of 15 points.
Among likely voters, Clinton gets 46 percent support to Trump’s 31 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson comes in third with 7 percent, and Jill Stein only manages 2 percent.
In contrast, shortly after the GOP convention ended, RABA found Clinton at 39 percent and Trump garnering 34 percent.
If you look inside the numbers, you can see exactly why Clinton now holds such a commanding lead: She now has a 7-point lead with men (42-35), a 22-point lead with women (50-28), and even earns 14 percent of support from Republican voters. Clinton now leads by double-digits among all age groups.
This is indeed good news for the Clinton camp, but as you can tell from the bus tour they started just a day after the convention ended, they are trying to keep the momentum in their corner and never let up on Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence.
In the weeks ahead, should Clinton maintain or expand this 15-point lead, you can expect Trump to go even more negative. Who knows, he might even beg his good friend Vladimir Putin for some more help.
