Latest Presidential Polls: Hillary Clinton maintains lead over Donald Trump in latest poll

Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump in a poll released Sunday, a continuation of surveys giving the Democratic nominee a narrow edge.

Hillary Clinton has a 5-percentage-point lead over Donald Trump among likely voters, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released on Sunday. When looking at all registered voters, Clinton’s 46 percent to 41 percent lead opens to a 10-point advantage, 45 percent to 35 percent. Johnson has the support of 9 percent of likely voters in the poll and Stein polls at 2 percent. Clinton’s 10-point lead among registered voters is actually a 2-point improvement from last month’s poll, though other recent national and swing-state surveys have shown a tightening race between Clinton and Trump.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll highlights the challenges and advantages each candidate has with less that two months to go until Election Day. At this point in the race, Trump’s supporters are more enthusiastic about their candidate, more engaged in the election, and 93 percent of them say they are sure to vote, versus only 80 percent of Clinton backers. Clinton has a 75 percent to 13 percent lead over Trump among non-white voters, she is tied with him among college-educated white men, and leads him by double-digits among college-educated women, but Trump leads among all white voters, 50 percent to 36 percent. By 2 points, voters judge Clinton more honest and trustworthy than Trump, the poll finds.

Trump’s problem with college-educated white men, a group the GOP has won in the past nine elections, “shows the scale of Trump’s problem,” says The Washington Post’s Philip Bump. “His position in the polls has improved. But he continues to need to expand his base if he’s to have a real shot at challenging Clinton’s lead. Trump spent a month putting a focus on black voters and dallying briefly with softening his position on immigration in an apparent attempt to build a strong relationship with Hispanics. It didn’t work.” The poll was conducted Sept. 5-8 among 1,002 adults; the margin of error among registered voters is ±4 points and among likely voters, ±4.5 points.
