Clinton Ahead 14 Points in WSJ/NBC Poll
Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by more than 10 percentage points in two new national polls released early Monday afternoon. In a new poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, in a four-way ballot Clinton leads Trump 46 percent to 35 percent; in a two-way ballot, the Democratic nominee leads with 52 percent of voters surveyed compared to 38 percent for Trump. Results from a congressional ballot poll showed that Democrats led 49 percent to 42 percent—the largest congressional advantage since the government shutdown in October 2013. The survey also shows voters are split over the effects of the release of 2005 recording of Trump describing kissing and touching women without consent: 52 percent said the audiotape should be an issue in the campaign.
