A new NBC News/Survey Monkey poll shows Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 10 points, up from an 8-point margin last week.
According to NBC News, the 10-point margin marks the largest spread between the rival candidates since a head-to-head matchup was first compared in May. Her lead narrows to just 6 points, however, when Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are added in:
- Clinton: 51 percent
- Trump: 41 percent
- Clinton: 44 percent
- Trump: 38 percent
- Johnson: 10 percent
- Stein: 4 percent
The network's weekly polls show Trump is losing support among core Republican voters and men. This week's poll shows Trump's margin over Clinton with men is now at 5 points, down from a 16-point gap two weeks ago.
Trump's support among white men is also dropping. Over the past two weeks, the GOP nominee owned a 23-point margin over Clinton among white men, at 58 percent to 35 percent. That number, however, dropped from a 31-point lead among white men during the week of the Republican convention.
Other results from the poll:
- Clinton has flipped voters without college degrees, leading Trump 48 percent to 44 percent. Trump owned a 9-point margin with that group in the beginning of July.
- Clinton leads Trump by 24 points among women, up from a 14-point margin two weeks ago.
- Trump is also losing momentum among evangelical voters. In early July, he held a 60-point advantage. Now he leads by 49 points, at 71 percent to 22 percent.
The poll was conducted from Aug. 1-7 among a sample of 11,480 adults who reported they are registered voters, and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 1.2 percentage points. Of the respondents, 3,451 were registered Republicans, with a 2.3-point margin of error, and 3,974 Democrats, with a 2-point margin of error.
