New Poll: Clinton Widens Lead over Trump
The latest poll by CNN/ORC has placed Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump.
The Hill reports:
The CNN/ORC poll shows Clinton leading Trump, 49 percent to 42 percent. In the same poll conducted last month, Clinton led Trump 47 percent to 42 percent.
But in a four-way match-up with Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, both Trump and Clinton lose ground.
Clinton carried 42 percent, while Trump had 37 percent, Johnson had 13 percent and Stein had 5 percent.
That’s a 4-point increase from the same poll last month for Johnson.
The poll also shows Trump gaining more support among Republican voters, with 56 percent saying they prefer him as the nominee over someone else, compared to 51 percent in June.
The new poll was conducted from July 13 to 16 among 1,013 adults, including 872 registered voters, and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll also released Sunday morning shows Clinton with a 5-point lead over her likely general election rival in results unchanged since June.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday shows Clinton with 47 percent support nationally, while Trump has 43 percent.
