Poll: Clinton up 10 on Trump Nationally

The latest general election poll by Farleigh Dickinson University has revealed that Hillary Clinton is 10 points ahead of Donald Trump nationally.

The Hill reports:

The Democratic nominee leads her Republican rival 50 percent to 40 percent among likely voters in the Fairleigh Dickinson University survey released Wednesday.

Pollsters found Clinton’s edge is roughly unchanged when respondents are asked about third-party candidates.

Clinton leads Trump, 45 percent to 36 percent, in a four-way matchup, with Libertarian nomineeGary Johnson grabbing 11 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein nabbing 3 percent.

More respondents would also prefer Clinton’s running mate to Trump’s if Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Gov. Mike Pence (Ind.) were the presidential candidates instead. Forty-nine percent favor Kaine in that situation, versus 41 percent who back Pence.

Fairleigh Dickinson University questioned 788 likely voters from Sept. 28 to Oct. 2. Its new poll has a 4.4 percentage point margin of error.

Recent polls show the White House race between Clinton and Trump remains competitive.

A Reuters/Ipsos survey out Wednesday, for example, found Clinton leading Trump by about 6 points nationally.

And Clinton leads Trump by about 4 points in the latest RealClearPolitics average of national polls.
