Poll: RNC Turned Voters Away from Trump

According to a new Gallup poll, the 2016 Republican National Convention marked the first time in history in which more voters said they were less likely to vote for a party’s nominee after its convention than those who said they were now more likely to do so. Fifty-one percent of surveyed Americans said they were less likely to vote for Trump after the GOP convention in Cleveland, while only 36 percent said they were more likley to cast their ballot for him. After last week’s Democratic convention in Philadelphia, however, 45 percent said they were more likely to now vote for Hillary Clinton, and 41 percent said they were less likely.
