Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by two points in a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday. This is the first time Trump has led Clinton in the Reuters poll since early May.

Trump gained support after he formally accepted his party’s nomination at last week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

The poll found that 39% of likely voters would support Trump, 37% would support Clinton, and 24% would support another candidate.

Last Friday, Clinton held a three point lead over Trump — which was within the margin of error.

After his primary opponents dropped out of the race Trump held a slim lead over Clinton. He lost his lead after he made controversial comments about a federal judge’s heritage, and fought with party bosses.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll of 962 likely voters was conducted July 22-26 and has a four point margin of error.
