A new national poll released Wednesday shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton by 7 points.
The USC Dornsife/LA Times Presidential Election Daybreak Poll
- Donald Trump: 47 percent
- Hillary Clinton 40 percent
The poll surveyed 3,000 Americans by the Los Angeles Times and the USC Dornsife Center.
Trump's skyrocketing numbers come just three days after the same poll, which is updated daily, showed Trump leading Clinton 45 percent to 41 percent.
And they arrive just hours after Clinton was officially anointed as the Democratic Party's presidential nominee during Day 2 of its convention in Philadelphia.
Trump was tapped the GOP nominee at last week's Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
The Daybreak tracking poll is part of the Understanding America Study conducted by USC's Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research.
