The very first significant post-convention bounce since 2000. It’s the “Clinton News Network” so add another 10% or so to it and you might be closer to the real truth. Just wait until Wikileaks drops the next huge bomb. Boom!
Do you think Trump will have a post-Dem convention bounce that’s even higher?

(CNN) – The bounce is back.
Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.
There hasn’t been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN’s polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.
National polls don’t have a large enough sample to accurately reflect the state of play in key battlegrounds, and there is little information thus far on how Trump’s convention performance has affected the presidential race state-by-state.

Clinton Campaign laughs off the results…
Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager laughed off the notion Monday that the previous week’s Republican National Convention would present any “lasting damage” to the presumptive Democratic nominee’s effort heading into the party’s own convention this week.
“Well, I would argue the lasting damage out of their convention was to Donald Trump, because he failed to present a clear plan about what he’s going to do to help get this economy working for everyone, and boy was it depressing,” Robby Mook told reporters at a briefing in Philadelphia.
