    (CNN)The bounce is back.

    Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.

    There hasn't been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN's polling since 2000
    . That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.

    The new findings mark Trump's best showing ina CNN/ORC Pollagainst Clinton since September 2015. Trump's new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump's convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.

    Donald Trump's plan to win the week
    The poll also reflects a sharpening of the education divide among whites that has been prevalent throughout the campaign. Among white voters with college degrees, Clinton actually gained ground compared with pre-convention results, going from an even 40% to 40% split to a 44% to 39% edge over Trump. That while Trump expanded his lead with white voters who do not hold a college degree from a 51% to 31% lead before the convention to a 62% to 23% lead now.

    Beyond boosting his overall support, Trump's favorability rating is also on the rise (46% of registered voters say they have a positive view, up from 39% pre-convention), while his advantage over Clinton on handling top issues climbs. He now holds double-digit margins over Clinton as more trusted on the economy and terrorism. Trump also cut into Clinton's edge on managing foreign policy (50% said they trusted her more, down from 57% pre-convention).
    The convention also helped Trump make strides in his personal image. A majority (52%) now say Trump is running for president for the good of the country rather than personal gain, just 44% say the same about Clinton. He's increased the share who call him honest and trustworthy (from 38% to 43%), and who would be proud to have him as president (from 32% to 39%). And nearly half now say he's in touch with the problems ordinary Americans face in their daily lives (46% say so, 37% did before the convention).

    Despite Democratic criticism of the Republican convention's message as divisive, the percentage who say Trump will unite the country rather than divide it has increased to 42%, compared with 34% pre-convention.

    Clinton's ratings on these same measures took a hit, though in most cases her drop-off was not quite as large as Trump's gain. Perhaps most troubling for the Clinton supporters gathering in Philadelphia this week: 68% now say Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, her worst rating on that measure in CNN/ORC polling.

    Those positives for Trump come despite some sharply negative reviews for the convention itself. Almost 6 in 10 (58%) said the Republican convention spent too much time attacking Democrats, and 18% called Trump's speech "terrible," the highest by far since CNN started began the question in 1996. Still, 40% called the speech excellent or good and about half of voters (45%) said Trump's speech reflected the way they feel about things in the U.S. today; 48% said it did not reflect their views.

    The public rendered a split decision on whether the convention made them more or less likely to back Trump, 42% said more likely while 44% said less so, but the shift in voter preferences suggests the "more likely" side carried more weight. And most came away feeling ready to decide about Trump's fitness for the job: 78% say they already know enough to know whether he'd be a good president. Another 20% think they need more information.

    Two prominent convention speakers saw their stock rise post-convention as well. Favorability ratings for Trump's wife, Melania, climbed from 27% pre-convention to 43% post-convention, despite news that her Monday night speech contained passages lifted from Michelle Obama's 2008 Democratic convention speech. Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, whose Wednesday speaking slot was largely overshadowed following Ted Cruz's defiant stand on the convention stage, also bolstered the electorate's impression of him, landing at a 39% favorable rating overall, up from 26% pre-convention.

    The only thing they'll be accurate on doing is comparing who got the bigger bump

    This is an interesting year. The polls will always work to make the election look like a coin flip. The media needs the campaign dollars, so they have to make all the candidates viable and neck and neck. If a candidate looks to have no hope, they will not be able to raise and spend money on ad buys. I am looking forward to seeing how much spend the Trump campaign drives. Hillary is a really horrible candidate, and the more time she spends in the campaign spotlight the more apparent it becomes.

    Every candidate has a popularity bump after their convention. The main thing their handlers have to do is keep them from making any unforced errors in the next 90 days.. Trump needs to stay on an approved script and use a TelePrompTer at future campaign events. Those cheering crowds sometimes goad him into saying some off the wall shit, and the media will certainly run with it. Avoid the liberal interview shows with the gotcha questions. Everyone knows his positions by now, no need to take that risk. He needs to be kept on a tight leash till November. Have Ivanka vet all tweets before hitting the send button. If Trump can land a few well placed cunt punches during the debates I think he has a good chance to win.

    68% now say Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, her worst rating on that measure in CNN/ORC polling.

    Not so sure Clinton will get one considering everything that has transpired and will continue to transpire the next few days...

    Leaks to come!

    When is it allowable to point out that every single thing Hillary Clinton gets involved in somehow turns to shit?

    Her marriage, her voting record, her attempt at international diplomacy... she's incompetent at best.

    Wait till they factor in the Wikileaks emails.

    The Dems need to get rid of Hillary quick. She's polluting their brand.

    Did you read the thread title?

    There hasn't been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN's polling since 2000.
