Last week's Republican National Convention gave Donald Trump an edge over Hillary Clinton, according to a new CNN poll — and some Democratic delegates at the convention in Philadelphia said they are "terrified" and that the party needs to "do some serious thinking."
In a two-way national matchup — conducted over telephone with over 1,000 random adults — Trump polled at 48% to Clinton's 45%.
Another poll by Morning Consult released on Monday also showed Trump ahead of Clinton by 4%, calling it a "post-convention bump." And a Los Angles Times/USA Today poll out Sunday also has Trump up 4%.
And an election forecast by FiveThirtyEight showed Trump with a 56.7% chance of winning to Clinton's 43.3% if the election were held today.
“There’s a clear trend historically in polling that after your convention you always get a bump," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told reporters at a briefing Monday morning.
"I would suspend any polling analysis until after our convention," Mook said.
