Is the RNC convincing undecided voters to support Trump?

Political conventions are essentially commercials for their candidates. Is the Republican National Convention succeeding at selling Trump and his agenda to undecided voters? Though he got more than 11 million votes in the Republican primary, Trump has to connect with people outside of his base if he wants to win in November.

Republican consultant Steve Schmidt argues that the unforced errors in running the convention itself— disorganization, last-minute schedule changes, a strange lineup of speakers, and Melania Trump's partially plagiarized speech—don't sell the Trump team as an organized, capable group. If they can't run a convention smoothly for four days, how are they going to run a country?

The often-angry tone of the speeches has turned off many viewers.

And many viewers think the RNC is overemphasizing fear: fear of a Clinton presidency, fear of Muslims, fear of terrorism, and fear of immigrants. People want to see plans for overcoming the nation's problems, not just a list of what to be afraid of.

Chris Christie's speech, in which he led a mock trial of Hillary Clinton for her alleged crimes, drew big applause from inside and outside the convention. Establishment GOP politicians are backing Trump, something people said would never happen.
#RNCSellingIt
The party is unifying around Donald Trump, and that could bring in right leaning voters who were wary about Trump's GOP credentials. There may be minor issues here and there, but you don't see the disunity that media claimed would have happened.

And at the very least, Trump is putting on a good show in Cleveland.
