It’s over Donald!
Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump by double digits in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted this weekend in the days after video of Trump lewdly describing groping women but before Sunday night’s rancorous, nationally televised debate.
The poll shows Clinton leading Trump among likely voters, 46 percent to 35 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 9 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 2 percent. Four percent of voters said they wouldn’t choose any of those candidates, and another 4 percent weren’t sure.
When voters are asked to choose between only Clinton and Trump, the Democrat’s lead swells to 14 percentage points, 52 percent to 38 percent.
In the previous NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll — conducted in mid-September, before the first Clinton-Trump debate —Clinton had a 6-point lead on the four-way ballot, 43 percent to 37 percent, and a 7-point edge in a head-to-head matchup, 48 percent to 41 percent.
