Poll: No Post-Convention Bounce for Donald Trump [View all]

Donald Trump received no significant bounce following the Republican National Convention, according to the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll. Hillary Clinton still leads Trump by a single point: 46 percent to 45 percent. These numbers are unchanged from last week.

The Trump-Mike Pence ticket saw a modest boost in favorability among Republicans. Independents — the true persuadable voters — were less than enthusiastic about what they saw or heard about the GOP convention, according to the weekly tracking poll, conducted online from July 18 through July 24 among 12,931 adults who say they are registered to vote.


Trump, however, now leads Clinton by 2 points (41 to 39 percent) in a four-way general election matchup with Libertarian Gary Johnson (10 points) and Green Party candidate Jill Stein (5 points). This is up 1 point from last week.

Heading into the GOP convention, there was speculation about whether the notable absences of party elites and the "Stop Trump" movement would cause controversy at the party's formal nominating event. There were also high hopes among Republicans that the convention would provide an opportunity for the normally off-the-cuff candidate to present himself in a more presidential light as well as a champion of conservative ideas and policies — and, hopefully, sway undecided Republicans and Independents in his favor.
