Comparing bumps

A brand new CBS News poll shows Hillary Clinton got a 4 point bounce after the Democratic convention, twice that of Donald Trump's after his. That means Clinton has pulled ahead of Trump again, with 46 percent of voters nationwide saying they'll opt for her in November, while 39 percent say they'll back Trump. The race was tied last week after the Republican convention. Clinton led by a similar margin in June.

Dark clouds?

The economy is losing steam: The Commerce Department reported last week that the Gross Domestic Product grew at a meager 1.2 percent annual clip last quarter, much weaker than forecasters expected. We look at how the slowdown could roil the presidential race, and why it poses particular risks for Hillary Clinton.

Odds are

The Electoral College is unforgiving and, says one CBS News pundit, unless Trump can pull of a historic high-wire act, he's doomed to lose to Clinton in November.

Silver lining

Concerns about mounting student debt in the U.S. tend to overlook one thing: Having a college degree usually pays off. Bachelor's degree recipients earn an average of a $1 million more over their lifetimes than people with just a high school diploma. The trick is figuring out ahead of time if loans will weigh you down financially or add to your future prosperity.

Opposite tracks

Though the recovery is only crawling along right now, the stock market has surged since the recession ended in 2009: Over the last seven years, the S&P 500 is up more than 150 percent. We run down the best- and worst-performing stocks since President Obama took office.

Jumping toll

Trampoline parks are opening all over the country -- and the trend is bringing a big jump in injuries, with thousands of children ending up in the ER each year. We round up the latest expert advice for keeping kids safe at those parks.
