WASHINGTON, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has steadily built her lead to 7.3 percentage points over Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to UPI/CVoter polling data released Monday.

Clinton has more than half the support of the respondents -- 50.4 percent -- compared with 43.1 percent for Trump. Respondents' choice of "others" remained steady at 6.5 percent.

Seven days earlier -- two days after the Democratic National Convention -- she trailed Trump 47.6 to 47.4.

But one day later, July 31, she reached 49 percent and has been hovering around 50 percent ever since.

Trump's biggest support was on July 24 -- three days after the Republican National Convention -- with 49.2, a 5.8-percent lead of Clinton.

In the latest sample, 1,475 adults nationwide were polled online, including 1,036 likely voters, from July 31 through Saturday.
