The Republican National Convention apparently gave the Republican nominee the added boost he was looking for. According to a new CNN poll, Donald Trump jumped ahead of Hillary Clinton by 5 to 6 percentage points. According to a four-way match up, Trump is at 44% to Clinton's 39%. Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson, is holding at 9% and Jill Stein is at 3%. In a two-way match up between Clinton and Trump, the Republican nominee does even better and dominates Clinton by six percentage points.

I think this is a fair assessment of what Sanders supporters hear on a daily basis from Clinton supporters. And why Sanders has continued and should continue to stay in the race until the convention.
