Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump by double digits with just over three weeks until Election Day, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted after the second presidential debate.
The survey gives Clinton an 11-point lead over Republican Trump among likely voters, 48 percent to 37 percent in a four-way race, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 2 percent.
In a two-way contest without Johnson and Stein, Clinton holds her double-digit lead at 10 points, 51 percent to 41 percent.
The poll shows Clinton leading Trump in almost every segment of the electorate. Clinton holds a 20-point lead among female voters, 55 percent to 35 percent. Clinton also has the advantage among African Americans 86 percent to 9 percent. Among all non-white voters, 76 percent to 16 percent, and those ages 18-34, 54 percent to 36 percent. Trump is ahead among men by just three points, 48 percent to 45 percent.
Those without college degrees prefer Trump by a 56 percent-to-36 percent margin, while those with college degrees break evenly between Trump and Clinton, 45 percent to 45 percent.
To put Clinton’s current 11-point lead into perspective, Barack Obama beat John McCain by seven points nationally in 2008. And Obama’s margin of victory over Mitt Romney in 2012 was four points.
