In a head-to-head with Trump, Clinton leads by 20 points among women — while Trump is ahead by just 3 points with men.


Clearly, Trump’s Popularity has seen retarded graph in the national polls owing to his recent controversies. His Acesss-Hollywood tape’s lewd comments about forcing himself on women, the second presidential debate, and four women came forward to accuse Trump of groping them in public can be taken into consideration for Clinton’s lead in the poll and steep fall out.



Clinton gained substantial ground over Trump on numerous issues, including taxes (52-41 percent, a 10-point gain) and foreign affairs (60-33 percent, a 12-point gain), though both candidates remain pretty ostracized — 53 percent view Clinton unfavorably versus 45 percent who view her favorably, while Trump’s numbers are 61 percent unfavorable, 36 percent favorable. Clinton’s furnished debates had helped her in taking a lead in the four distinct presidential election polls.

“Read together, these poll results indicate that increasing numbers of voters are accepting the Hillary Clinton/Democratic Party frame of this election as a referendum on Donald Trump’s unfitness for the presidency,” said GW’s Michael Cornfield.


The figures coming out of the polls were an average result of recently released four national polls. It includes: The NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll conducted October 10-13; the Washington Post/ABC News Poll conducted October 10-13, the Fox News Poll conducted October 10-12 and the G.W. Battleground Poll conducted October 8-13.


The Zeal among Trump supporters is surely down to 79%, while Clinton’s support base is up to 83% — erasing the 10-point advantage in that measure that Trump had before the first debate.

Both the candidates will now face off on Wednesday in Las Vegas at the third and final presidential debate.
