(Worthy News) - Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump 43-40 percent in a Morning Consult national poll conducted entirely after the Democratic Convention concluded Thursday night, a 7-point swing from a Consult poll done just before the convention.
But the survey of 1,931 registered voters, who were questioned Friday and Saturday, shows a race basically up for grabs. The 3-point difference is just outside the poll's 2-point margin of error, and 17 percent of voters remain undecided.
Clinton personally gained very little from the convention, her numbers rising just 3 points from the 40 percent she was at in the previous poll, which was conducted in the three days following the Republican convention. Trump, who was a focus of sharp vitriol during the Democratic convention, saw his support decline from 44 to 40 percent. [ Source ]
