Poll: Clinton Opens up 6-Point Lead over Trump
The latest Ipsos/Reuters national tracking poll has placed Hillary Clinton 6 points ahead of Donald Trump.
The Hill reports:
Clinton has 44 percent support among likely voters to Trump’s 38 percent in the Ipsos/Reuters national tracking poll, which was taken before Monday’s first presidential debate.
Clinton’s lead shrinks slightly when third-party candidates are included. In that scenario, she has 42 percent to Trump’s 38 percent. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has 7 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein is backed by 2 percent.
In last week’s poll, the two major party’s nominees were tied at 39 percent in a head-to-head poll. In the four-way matchup last week, Trump had a two-point lead.
This week’s poll was conducted among 1,041 likely voters from Sept. 22 to 26. The margin of error is 3.5 percent.
