Clinton Leads Trump By 7-Points In New National McClatchy/Marist Poll


Many thought that after the 'deplorables' remark & after the collapse video, Hillary Clinton's poll numbers would take a major hit, but it doesn't appear that way. The latest AP-GFK  head-to-head poll has her leading by 6, she's leading by 7 in the NBC News/WSJ poll released Wednesday, and by 7 in this new Marist poll released this morning.

TPM reported:
Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by seven points among likely voters in a head-to-head matchup, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll released Friday morning.

When third party candidates are added to the question, Clinton leads Trump by six points, 45-39, among likely voters, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 10 points and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at four points.

The last national McClatchy-Marist poll released in early August did not survey likely voters and instead polled a broader pool of registered voters. In that poll, Clinton led Trump among registered voters by 15 points, 48-33.
