Clinton Leads Trump by 15 Points Nationwide: Poll
Hillary Clinton has managed to grow her lead over Donald Trump to 15 points according to the latest McClatchy-Marist survey released on Thursday.
The Hill reports:
Clinton, the Democratic nominee, leads Trump 48 percent to 33 percent in the McClatchy-Marist survey released on Thursday.
Clinton also retains her edge over Trump in a four-candidate match-up, earning 45 percent to the GOP presidential nominee’s 31 percent. In that scenario, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson takes third, with 10 percent, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein grabs 6 percent.
Clinton’s advantage comes after the July version of the same poll showed her with a slim 3-point lead over Trump.
Clinton snuck past Trump 42 percent to 39 percent in that match-up, which occurred before both major parties’ national conventions.
Pollsters found Thursday that 53 percent see Clinton as an acceptable president, versus 47 percent who do not.
Thirty-nine percent have the same view of Trump, contrasted with 61 percent who say the billionaire is unacceptable.
Thursday’s McClatchy-Marist survey did not list a sample size, a margin of error or sampling dates for its latest edition.
Clinton leads Trump by nearly 6 points nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
