Hillary Clinton saw a post-Democratic National Convention bump in the latest general election polls.
In a national poll from CBS released Monday, she gained 4 points from a preconvention poll. The results showed Clinton now has a 7-point lead over Donald Trump. Just a week ago, CBS showed the two were tied after the Republican Convention's conclusion.
CNN's latest poll Monday showed an even larger 7-point convention bounce for Clinton. The Democratic nominee now leads Trump by 9 points, according to CNN's results.
Candidates typically see a rise in the polls after their party's convention, but the CBS results gave Clinton twice the bounce that Trump got after the Republican gathering.
One key goal of the Democratic convention was to unify the liberal wing of the party — represented by Sen. Bernie Sanders — with the more moderate wing led by Clinton. The CBS poll results point to some measure of success in that regard, as Clinton's support among Sanders' voters has risen to 73 percent from 67 percent in previous polling.
Clinton's bounce is similar to those of the previous Democratic nominee, President Barack Obama, in 2008 and 2012, but short of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who got a 13-point bounce in 1992.
The poll, conducted from Friday through Sunday, had a margin for error of 3 points.
Correction: This story was revised to correct that Bill Clinton got a 13-point bounce in 1992.
