WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has emerged from the two major party conventions with an eight-point lead over Republican candidate Donald Trump, a lead which has been aided by a consolidation of support among Democrats and a failure so far by Republicans to rally equally behind their nominee.

This according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

According to the results, Clinton and her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, now lead Trump and his running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, by 50 percent to 42 percent among registered voters, double the four-point advantage the Democrats held on the eve of the Republican convention in mid-July. Among likely voters, the Democratic nominee leads by 51 percent to 44 percent.

While factoring the Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Part nominee Jill Stein, Clinton leads Trump 45 percent to 37 percent in a four-way race, according to the poll. Johnson is at eight percent and Stein at four percent.

The polls speaks to confirm that Clinton received a much more sizable post-convention bounce than Trump did from his, and has also been aided by the days of controversy that the billionaire real estate mogul generated from his sharp criticisms of a Muslim American family whose son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004 and who rebuked Trump on the stage of the Democratic convention.

When asked about the words Trump shared about Khizr Khan’s speech, 13 percent of registered voters said they approve of the way the business mogul handled the matter, while 74 percent said they disapprove. Overall, 56 percent said they strongly disapprove of the GOP nominee’s handling of the controversy.

The conventions did not ease public dissatisfaction with the choice in this election. Almost 6 in 10 registered voters say they are dissatisfied with the choice between Clinton and Trump as the major-party candidates, virtually unchanged from mid-July.

Clinton’s lead is also strikingly similar to the leads both Barack Obama and George W. Bush shared after their 2012 and 2004 conventions, both of whom won their bids for second terms.
