TIME 2016 Election

Donald Trump Continues to Dip in Polls as Hillary Clinton Firms Her Lead

Polls show that fervor for Trump has tanked

Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump by 11 points, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which comes a little more than three weeks before the presidential election.

Conducted after the second presidential debate, the NBC News/WSJ poll finds Clinton leading Trump among likely voters 48% to 37%. Trump’s support in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll remained roughly the same since controversy exploded over Trump’s treatment of women. The two candidates remain close in that poll, with Clinton polling at 47% to Trump’s 43% because of partisan preferences.

Both polls show that fervor for Trump has tanked in the aftermath of a video of the Republican nominee making crude comments to describe women and as multiple women have accused him of sexual assault. Two-thirds of registered voters reject Trump’s denial of making unwanted sexual advances toward women, the ABC News/Washington Post poll said.

The margin of error for the NBC News/WSJ poll is plus or minus 3.3 percentage points. The margin of error for the ABC News/Washington Post poll is 3 percentage points for the full sample.
