Another poll, another huge lead for Hillary Clinton! And this time, she is ahead by 12 POINTS, up from 8 points just three weeks ago.
The new Monmouth University poll released Monday afternoon puts Clinton ahead of Trump, 50% to 38%, in a four-way race that also includes Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. Hillary’s lead is up significantly from the 4 point advantage she held in a Monmouth poll last month.
“Clinton has increased her lead among all registered voters, but the main difference between this month and last month is that her supporters have become more enthusiastic, and thus more likely to turn out while Trump backers have become less likely to vote,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
Clinton’s personal rating has held stable since last month while Trump’s rating has slipped. Currently, 38% of voters have a favorable opinion of Clinton and 52% have an unfavorable view of her. This compares with a 36% to 54% rating last month. Only 26% of voters have a favorable opinion of Trump, though, while 61% have an unfavorable view of him. This is down from a 32% to 57% rating last month. Recent allegations of sexual misconduct seem to have played some role in the drop in Trump’s support.
Just three more weeks!
