Poll: Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Hillary Clinton has an 8 point lead over Donald Trump among likely voters in November, according to a new poll out Monday.
Clinton leads by 7 points among registered voters more broadly, according to the new poll from Monmouth University.
The presumptive Democratic nominee leads her GOP counterpart 49% to 41% among likely voters and 47% to 41% among registered voters.
She also has a commanding lead of 27 points among women and a more than 4-to-1 advantage among minority voters, while Trump leads by 13 points among men and by 11 points among white voters.
Like other recent polling, the Monmouth poll found a solid pocket of support for third-party candidates. Clinton’s lead shrinks slightly when pollsters included libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who pulled down a combined 13 percentage points.
Also consistent with other polling, both candidates have negative favorability ratings, though Trump is further underwater. The mogul also has more voters who say it is very important to keep him out of the White House (49%) than Clinton, (41%).
Monmouth surveyed 803 registered voters from June 15 to 19 for the poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
