New Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Lead Over Donald Trump Swells By Wide Margin

Newly released polls show a groundswell of support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Maryland and Michigan, indicating Clinton is building momentum with no sign of slowing down.

An EPIC-MRA poll for the Detroit Free Press and WXYZ finds 43% of likely voters back Clinton, compared to 32% who prefer Trump. The poll, released Thursday, also showed Clinton leads Trump in several key voting blocks, with 86%-2% support among African-Americans, 41%-32% among whites and 48%-28% among women. Clinton is also more than 20 points ahead with young voters (44%-22%).

The numbers mark a shift since the publication’s last poll on September 16, which found Clinton up by a slim margin of three percentage points.

A Maryland poll also shows Clinton up by a wide margin. A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll also released Thursday showed Clinton thumping Trump 63-27%.

The 36-point differential is 10 points more than the 26-point advantage President Barack Obama enjoyed over his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, in the lead-up to the 2012 election.

According to CNN, The EPIC-MRA Michigan poll surveyed 600 likely Michigan voters between October 1-3 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

The Washington Post-University of Maryland poll surveyed 906 Maryland likely voters from September 27 to 30 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Other polls also indicate Hillary Clinton is widening her lead over Donald Trump nationwide.
