Clinton Opens 9-Point Lead on Trump in New National Poll

Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by 9 percentage points in a new national CNN/ORC poll released today.

Clinton got a 7 point bounce — leading Trump 52 to 43 percent — after the Democratic convention, reaching her highest support in any poll since early May.

The poll comes with good and bad news for Clinton: Her honesty and trustworthy numbers remain stalled at 34 percent after the convention — the same spot for her two weeks ago.

But more Clinton supporters say they have a positive view of their vote for her. In early May, fewer than half of Clinton's backers said their vote was more to show support for her than opposition to Trump. Now that number has climbed to 58 percent of her supporters.

Clinton leads Trump by 7 percentage points in a four-way matchup as well, with Gary Johnson garnering 9 percent support and Jill Stein at 5 percent.
