    Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton looks on during a campaign rally with democratic vice presidential nominee U.S. Sen Tim Kaine (D-VA) at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on July 30, 2016 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    Hillary Clinton now leads Donald Trump by 8 points — 50 percent to 42 percent — in the wake of the Democratic National Convention, according to the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll.

    That's up from a single-point difference last week. Trump did not receive a similar bump after the Republican National Convention.

    Clinton's gain also comes after Trump's comments about the family of a fallen American soldier and Trump's suggestion that Russian hackers should seek out deleted Clinton emails.

    In a four-way match-up that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Clinton now leads Trump by 4 points — 42 percent to 38 percent. This is a lead-reversal from last week, when Trump was beating the Democratic nominee by 2 points.
