The early polling numbers show the DNC may have helped Hillary Clinton’s chances with voters. Clinton leads in most of the recent polls conducted after the DNC.

Donald Trump received a post-RNC boost last week in the polling numbers. During the convention season, the polls can seem like a game of tennis as it is not uncommon for presidential candidates to receive a bump at the conclusion of the party’s convention.

According to FiveThirtyEight, Clinton received a larger boost after the DNC than Trump did after the RNC. In four of the five most recent polls, Clinton’s lead ranges from four to eight percentage points. These particular polls also factor in Gary Johnson.

Last week, Trump was either tied or leading in a number of the polls that were conducted at the conclusion of the RNC. It will be worth watching whether Clinton can hold on to her lead for the rest of the month as the election draws closer.

The FiveThirtyEight projections give Clinton a 66 percent chance of winning over Trump. This number is up significantly from last week.

Here’s a look at the latest polls.
