National Poll: Clinton up by 9 Points

The latest general election poll has placed Hillary Clinton 9 points ahead of Donald Trump.

The Hill reports:

Clinton has 47 percent support to Trump’s 38 percent. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein trail with 8 percent and 3 percent, respectively.

In a hypothetical two-way race, Clinton keeps her 9-point cushion, leading Trump 50 to 41 percent.

In September, Clinton and Trump were tied in the Bloomberg poll, with 46 percent apiece in a head-to-head matchup.

Clinton leads Trump among likely voters without a college degree, 48 to 44 percent. And Trump trails by 13 points among whites with a college degree.

She also leads Trump with men for the first time, 46 to 44 percent.

The poll of 1,006 likely voters was conducted from Oct. 14 to 17. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.

Clinton leads Trump by 7.5 points nationally in the RealClearPolitics average of polling, 49.2 to 41.7 percent.
