Hillary Clinton takes commanding double-digit lead over Donald Trump


On average, the size of Mrs Clinton’s victory in the CNN debate poll would suggest that, all else being equal, she may expect to gain a point or two in the polls. His debate performance, freewheeling speeches and tweets taunting establishment Republicans are all aimed at his most devoted supporters. Trump has apologized. But widespread condemnation followed, including from dozens of Republican officeholders who called on Trump to quit the presidential race and let his running mate, Mike Pence, complete it as the GOP nominee.

There has been “no update in his position at this time“, Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said.

She added that seeing Trump make lewd comments on women in a 2005 video released by the Washington Post last week had “shaken me to my core in a way that I can not have predicted”.

Clinton was paraphrasing Buffett’s statement point by point, noting he says he’s paid federal income tax since he was 13-years-old and would be happy to release his tax returns, unlike Trump.

ABC News on Sunday dug up a 1998 interview in which the would-be Republican presidential nominee described Jones and others who accused then President Clinton of sexual misconduct as “unattractive” and “a awful group of people“.

Clinton leads a head-to-head matchup by 10 points, 50-40, according to the poll.

Trump has since apologised for his remarks and described it as a locker room talk. “But Bill Clinton has sexually assaulted innocent women and Hillary Clinton was attacking those women viciously”.

This is the first poll in which fieldwork was undertaken after the release of tapes in which Mr Trump brags about being able to grope women because of his fame.

The debate’s co-moderator, ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, said she saw “a lot of surprise” from the uncommitted voters selected to attend the town-hall style debate.

“For both parties, when you are a party officer, you are supposed to support your ticket”, Ellis said.

“We want everybody to vote and we particularly want young people to vote because this is your election more than anybody else,”‘ Clinton said. Among the 412 likely voters polled on Thursday, Trump led 41-40, but among the 236 likely voters polled Saturday and Sunday, Clinton led 49-30.

The former secretary of state promised to build on the work of President Barack Obama and ‘go further’. Slightly more said their opinion of him changed for the worse (29 percent) than for the better (23 percent) following Sunday night’s debate. She got the basics right. Trump held a press conference with the three women as well as Kathy Shelton ahead of the debate.
