Latest Poll Shows No Movement Yet Over Trump Scandal
This is the first poll taken after the Trump scandal broke. It is the Politico / Morning Consult Poll -- done on October 8th of a random national sample of 1,390 likely voters, with a margin of error of 3 points.
It shows that Hillary Clinton still has about a four point lead over Donald Trump on the national scene -- about what she had before the scandal broke a couple of days ago. Is the Trump scandal going to make any difference in how people vote for president? I tend to think it will, by a few points at least. We'll get a better picture in a few more days, after people have had a little time to think about it.
