Hillary Clinton takes near unbeatable lead over Trump: Poll

Clinton's (47 percent) lead over Trump (38 percent) has expanded to nine points, said CBS News in its poll conducted amidst allegations of sexual harassment against the controversial billionaire.


Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has a nine-point lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump, according to a latest poll which comes just three weeks before the general election.


Clinton's (47 percent) lead over Trump (38 percent) has expanded to nine points, said CBS News in its poll conducted amidst allegations of sexual harassment against the controversial billionaire.


The nine-point lead for Clinton is in a four-way match up, while in a two-way match up, she leads Trump by 11 points and her popularity among likely voters has crossed 51 percent for the first time, it said.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets eight percent of likely voters, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein receives three percent of the vote.


Two weeks ago, Clinton's lead was four points, the news channel said.


"In a two-way match-up where third party candidates are not named explicitly, Clinton leads Trump 51 percent to 40 percent among likely voters, including leaners," it said yesterday.


While Trump leads among men voters by just two percent, he trails by 19 percent among women voters.


Trump also leads Clinton by six percentage points among white voters, but trails by just two percent among white women.


As per RealClearPolitics, which keeps tracks of all major national polls, Clinton's lead over Trump on an average has now increased to seven percentage points.
