JUST TWO MORE DAYS. 48 hours from now many of us will have voted (if we didn’t vote early). In two days we will know whether our country will continue to progress, or whether it will revert back decades to a darker and more dangerous time. So vote!
The final NBC/WSJ Poll was released Sunday morning, and it shows Hillary Clinton in the lead by 4 points.
Hillary gets support from 44% of likely voters, Trump gets 40%, Gary Johnson gets 6%, and Jill Stein gets 2%.
In a two-way contest without Johnson and Stein, Clinton’s leads Trump by five points, 48% to 43%
From NBC News:
Clinton’s current lead over Trump is down from the 11-point edge she enjoyed in the four-way horserace in the previous NBC/WSJ poll in mid-October, 48 percent to 37 percent.
That poll was conducted after 2005 video of Trump surfaced with him saying that “you can do anything” to women when you are a star like he is. “Grab them by the p****. You can do anything.”
In the two-way contest last month, Clinton’s lead was 10 points, 51 percent to 41 percent.
This newest poll – conducted Nov. 3-5 of more than 1,200 likely voters – comes after the letter FBI Director James Comey sent to Congress on Oct. 28 saying that the FBI had “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent” to the investigation of Clinton.
When it comes to demographics, we are seeing the same numbers as we’ve seen in previous polls.
Hillary is ahead of Trump among women (no surprise there) (53% to 38%), African Americans (86% to 7%), Latinos (65% to 20%) and those ages 18-34 (55% to 32%).
Trump, meanwhile, leads among men (47% to 42%), seniors (49% to 42%) and whites (53% to 38%). Those are similar numbers to those that supported Brexit, so Clinton being ahead shouldn’t make us complacent.
