Hil­lary gets a boost after Demo­cratic con­ven­tion

The Myanmar Times - - World -

HIL­LARY Clin­ton got a sup­port bounce of four to seven per­cent­age points after the Demo­cratic Na­tional Con­ven­tion and now holds a sub­stan­tial lead over Don­ald Trump in the White House race, polls re­leased on Au­gust 1 showed.

Ms Clin­ton’s ad­van­tage over the Repub­li­can can­di­date Mr Trump is 46 per­cent to 39pc, ac­cord­ing to the CBS News poll.

After the Repub­li­can con­ven­tion, Mr Trump got a two-point bump and the race was tied, CBS said.

A CNN-ORC poll had Ms Clin­ton, the for­mer sec­re­tary of state, com­mand­ing an even larger lead of nine points, 52-43, in the af­ter­math of the Demo­cratic con­fab in Philadel­phia.

That poll had Mr Trump ahead 4845 fol­low­ing the Repub­li­can con­ven­tion in Cleve­land.

Ms Clin­ton also came out stronger in terms of the share of Amer­i­cans who think her poli­cies will move the coun­try in the right di­rec­tion, ris­ing from 43pc of re­spon­dents be­fore ei­ther con­ven­tion to 48pc to­day. –
