Hillary Clinton now holds a five-point lead in the latest Washington Post-ABC Tracking Poll overall, and is gaining clear advantages on polling of several personal attributes.
Clinton is at 48 percent while Trump is at 43 percent overall. The same poll had them both tied at 46 just a week ago.
Enthusiasm for Clinton and Trump is now roughly equal and far below what it was for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney four years ago.
Fifty-five percent of Clinton's backers say the main reason they are voting for her is because they support her, compared with 43 percent of Trump voters.
More Trump voters say they are voting for him mainly because they oppose Clinton.
Clinton holds clear advantages on several key qualities asked by pollsters:
- By 58 percent to 32 percent, more voters prefer Clinton’s personality and temperament.
- By 55 percent to 36 percent, more say she has better qualifications for the job than Trump does.
- By 48 to 41 percent, Clinton leads on the question of which candidate has a better understanding of the “problems of people like you.
- By 46 to 38, she leads when voters are asked which candidate has stronger moral character.
