Poll: Clinton Has11-Point Lead Over Trump

A new poll shows the sexual assault scandal surrounding Donald Trump may have put a dent in his support less than a month before election day. According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll out Sunday, Hillary Clinton now leads Trump by 11 points, a major increase from her previous 6-point lead. Clinton now holds 47 percent among likely voters, compared to Trump’s 37 percent. The poll, conducted after the release of a damning 2005 tape showing Trump make crude remarks about women, also showed that 64 percent of respondents had concerns about the tape. Fifty-three percent of respondents said they didn't think the tape should disqualify him from the race, however, while about a third of voters believed it should disqualify him. The poll was conducted among 905 likely voters from Oct. 10-13, after the second presidential debate and release of the tape but before the sexual assault allegations against the Republican nominee.
