Well, well, well, look at what we have here! A possible landslide!
Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 12 percentage points among likely voters, her strongest showing this month, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday.
The poll showed that 45% of voters supported Clinton, while 33% backed Trump ahead of the November 8th election.
Clinton has led Trump throughout most of the 2016 campaign. But her latest lead represents a stronger level of support than polls indicated over the past few weeks. Earlier in August, Clinton’s lead over Trump ranged from 3 to 9 percentage points in the poll.
The poll also found that about 22 percent of likely voters would not pick either candidate. That lack of support is high compared with how people responded to the poll during the 2012 presidential election between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.
“Those who are wavering right now are just as likely to be thinking about supporting a third-party candidate instead, and not between Clinton and Trump,” said Tom Smith, who directs the Center for the Study of Politics and Society at the University of Chicago.
