OUCH: Clinton up by double digits after Trump tape’s release.
The Democratic nominee also eclipsed the 50-percent margin in a head-to-head matchup.
Clinton leads the GOP nominee 52 percent to 38 percent in the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted on Saturday and Sunday. In a four-way matchup, Clinton leads by 11 points, 46 percent to 35 percent, with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson posting 9 percent.
During the last NBC/WSJ poll in September, Clinton led Trump by 7 points in the two-way race and 6 points in the four-way scenario.
Clinton’s 14-point margin in the head-to-head and 11-point margin in the four way represent Clinton’s largest lead since an August McClatchy/Marist poll. That poll was taken after Clinton’s post-convention bounce and as Trump faced criticism over his comments about a Gold Star family.
We’ll see if last night’s debate turned things around any, but down-ticket Republicans might already be praying for some record-setting ticket-splitting.
