Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is leading GOP nominee by 8 points, according to CNN's newest Poll of Polls, released on Monday.
The poll, which averages the four most recently published national polls meeting the network's standards for publication, shows:
- Clinton: 47 percent;
- Trump: 39 percent;
- Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson: 7 percent;
- Green Party nominee Jill Stein: 2 percent.
The Poll of Polls is an average of the NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, conducted Oct. 10-13; the Washington Post/ABC News Poll, conducted Oct. 10-13; the Fox News Poll, conducted Oct. 10-12; and the G.W. Battleground Poll conducted Oct. 8-13.
All four of the polls included four-way matchups between the candidates, and the Poll of Polls does not have a margin of sampling error.
All four of the national polls were conducted after a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape was released on Oct. 7, showing Trump caught on a hot mic making explicit comments about women to then-show host Billy Bush.
After the tape was released, several Republican elected officials pulled back their endorsements or support.
In addition, several women have accused Trump of making unwanted sexual advances, which he categorically denied.
Trump and Clinton will face off on Wednesday for their third and final debate. She has been off the campaign trail while preparing for the debate, but Trump has been busy, making campaign stops in the battleground states of Florida and North Carolina and will travel to Wisconsin and Colorado this week, CNN reports.
