Democrat Hillary Clinton leads in enough swing states to win the presidency if the election were held today, according to a new Washington Post/Survey Monkey poll.

The Post looked at 15 battleground states and added the electoral votes of other states considered safe Democrat or Republican.

A total of 270 electoral votes are needed to win the White House. According to the survey, Clinton would have 304 electoral votes to Republican Donald Trump's 138.

Among the 15 states looked at, Clinton leads Trump in New Hampshire, Virginia, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump leads in Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio and Texas.

Though Trump is ahead in the Survey Monkey poll in Florida and Ohio, both seen as vital for a Republican victory, it would not be enough to put him over the top if the election were held today.

The poll also looked at Senate and governors' races in the 15 states and found those Republicans were typically outperforming Trump in those states. Many in the GOP have distanced themselves from Trump in recent weeks over comments he made about women in 2005 and after several woman have publicly accused him of acting inappropriately toward them over the years.

Trump has denied all the claims, calling them part of a coordinated Democrat and media effort to rig the election against him.
