Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton holds a 16-point lead over Republican rival Donald Trump among likely voters in Virginia, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
The former Secretary of State leads the New York businessman 48% to 32% in a four-way race that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, results from the latest Roanoke College Poll show.
In a two-way matchup, Clinton leads by 19 points, with 55% support compared to Trump’s 36%. The two candidates were tied in Roanoke’s poll in May.
“Hillary Clinton has improved her position among her core constituencies as well as ideological moderates and political independents,” Dr. Harry Wilson, director of the Institute for Policy and Opinion Research, said in a statement.
“There is no silver lining in this dark cloud for Donald Trump,” Wilson added. “His numbers are mostly negative and stagnant. The election is 11 weeks away, but he has a lot of ground to make up.”
The Roanoke College Poll interviewed 803 likely voters in Virginia between August 7 and August 17. It has a margin of error of +/-3.5%.
