Three New Polls Show Hillary Clinton Is Extending Her Lead
The chart above reflects the results of the latest three national polls on the presidential race. They are:
The NBC News / Wall Street Journal Poll -- done on October 8th and 9th of a random national sample of 500 registered voters, and has a 4.4 point margin of error.
The Rasmussen Poll -- done on October 5th-6th and 9th of a random national sample of 1,500 likely voters, and has a 2.5 point margin of error.
The YouGov / Economist Poll -- done on October 7th and 8th of a random national sample of 1,300 voters, and has a 4.2 point margin of error.
All three of these new polls have Hillary Clinton with a significant lead over Donald Trump -- NBC/WSJ (+11), Rasmussen (+7), and YouGov (+6). And all of them show Clinton has increased her lead over Trump since they last polled. The margins for Clinton in their last polls were NBC/WSJ +6 (an increase of 5 points), Rasmussen -1 (an increase of 8 points), and YouGov +3 (an increase of 3 points).
It looks like Trump's lewd tape may be having a detrimental effect on his campaign after all.
