Hillary Clinton now has a 10-point national lead over Donald Trump in the Quinnipiac University poll of likely voters out Thursday. Among those likely to vote in November, Clinton grabbed 51% in a head-to-head matchup, while Trump earned 41%.
Quinnipiac is considered one of the most respected pollsters.
Clinton drew wide levels of support from women (60% to 36%), those between the ages of 18-34 (64% to 29%), and 35-49 (53% to 39%). Trump, meanwhile, holds a smaller advantage among men (48% to 42%) and a large lead over Clinton among whites who do not have a college degree (58% to 35%).
Independent voters prefer Clinton slightly, 46% to 41 %, while likely voters between the ages of 50-64 are split, with 46% behind Clinton and 47% backing Trump. Voters 65 and older supported Trump 49% to 45%. Trump has the support of 52% of white voters, compared with 41% who back Clinton. But there is a significant cleavage between white men, with whom Trump holds a 27-point lead (59% to 32%), and white women, where Clinton has a three-point edge (49 percent to 46 percent). Among all non-white voters surveyed, the Democratic nominee leads 77% to 15%.
Nine in 10 voters surveyed said their minds are made up about their decision, with roughly the same share of Trump and Clinton supporters indicating that level of certainty.
I love the uneducated!
