A Morning Consult survey taken on the first day of the DNCfound Biden leading Trump by eight points, compared to nine points immediately after the DNC, in a poll conducted August 22.

Biden's standing was virtually unchanged before and after his convention, while Trump's improved. This parallels Morning Consult's polling from 2016, when Trump gained five percentage points of voter support after the RNC.

Morning Consult noted, however, that the major difference between this year and 2016 is the smaller number of undecided voters left on the table.

The poll also noted a slightly stronger divide along racial lines: Trump improved his lead among white voters, and emerged with a slightly worse standing with voters of color.

Among white voters, Trump led Biden 51% to 43% after the RNC, compared with a 2-point edge earlier in the week.

In contrast, he trailed Biden by 28 points among Hispanic voters (33% to 61%) and 74 points among Black voters (9% to 83%).

The poll also noted that Trump hurt Biden's margin among suburban voters. Before the convention, Biden led by 14 points (54% to 40%), compared to 8 points after the convention (50% to 42%).

"The president and his allies also sought to claim the mantle of the party of law and order and a last line of defense against a creeping radical socialism from the Democratic Party, messaging largely aimed at white people and suburbanites, who will be key for the president in order to win in November," the poll noted.

Trump tweeted Saturday "Biden's Polls are dropping fast," and knocked the former vice president's campaign.

"Now that Biden’s Polls are dropping fast, he has agreed to get out of his basement and start campaignin,'in ten days.' Sadly, that is a very slow reaction time for a President. Our beloved USA needs a much faster, smarter, and tougher response than that. Get out there today, Joe!" Trump wrote.
