Clinton has 50 percent support to Trump's 42 percent in the poll released early Tuesday. Clinton's support has grown while Trump's has decreased since last month's poll, which had her ahead by 1 point, 46 to 45 percent.
Clinton's favorability among Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters also rose 6 points, to 80 percent, after the Democratic convention, while her unfavorables fell 5 points, to 19 percent.
It's the latest post-convention poll finding Clinton ahead. A CNN/ORC poll released late Monday found Clinton leading Trump by 9 points, 52 to 43 percent, while a CBS poll also released Monday found her up 6 points, 47 to 41 percent.
The new NBC/SurveyMonkey poll also found Clinton retaking the lead from Trump in a four-way presidential matchup with third-party candidates. Clinton leads Trump by 4 points, 42 to 38 percent, in that scenario.
