Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has lost her post-convention polling bounce, according to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports.

Donald Trump is now leading Clinton by just one percent.

Trump has 40 percent support, while Clinton has 39 percent, according to the survey of likely U.S. voters.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earned seven percent while Green Party candidate Jill Stein only earns three percent.

Earlier this month, Clinton had a high of 44 percent before falling five points to 39 percent.

The poll shows that Trump continues to attract more Democrats than Republicans who are willing to switch to Clinton.

Fifteen percent of Democrats support Trump while twelve percent of Republicans prefer Clinton.

The Rasmussen survey includes 1,000 likely voters and was conducted on August 29-30. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
