Hillary Clinton leads Trump by just 4 points

Donald Trump has lost little support since the first presidential debate, despite days of damaging news stories about his treatment of women, according to a new poll.
Hillary Clinton leads Trump 47 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in a four-way race, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post national poll. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson trails with 5 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein is at 2 percent.In the previous ABC/Post poll, taken before the Sept. 26 debate, Clinton led Trump 46 percent to 44 percent.
The new poll continues to show some dire numbers for Trump, however, just 25 days before Election Day.
Nearly 70 percent say they believe that Trump has “made unwanted sexual advances toward women,” a stunning number that comes after the publication of lewd comments the now-Republican nominee made on a hot mic in 2005, and amid allegations by several women who say he touched them inappropriately. (Trump has said his comments were just “locker room talk” and denies the groping accusations.)
And a majority of registered voters — 55 percent — say that Trump’s treatment of women is a legitimate issue, version 42 percent who say it wasn’t.
Similarly, most voters aren’t buying Trump’s apology for the 2005 video — 57 percent of registered voters say it was insincere, and only 40 percent agree it sounded like “typical locker room talk by men.”
Just 30 percent of registered voters say Trump has a “strong moral character,” versus 45 percent for Clinton. Only 34 percent view Trump as honest and trustworthy, down from 42 percent in last month’s survey. And just 34 percent say Trump has the right temperament to be president, while 59 percent say Clinton does.
And, in a finding consistent with most other surveys, just 39 percent of registered voters say Trump is qualified for the Oval Office, version 59 percent who say Clinton is.
Trump’s unfavorable numbers are up among American adults: 66 percent view the New York mogul unfavorably, an increase of 7 points since September’s survey, and 54 percent see him “strongly” unfavorably. But among registered voters, Trump is seen only somewhat more unfavorably than Clinton, 63 percent to her 57 percent.
One-third of registered voters, moreover, say that Trump’s crude boasts about grabbing women’s genitals and kissing them unasked — as revealed in a leaked video from a taping of “Access Hollywood” — make them less likely to support him. But those voters, according to pollster Gary Langer, “fit the profile of those who were unlikely to do so in the first place.”
The new ABC/Post poll surveyed 1,152 adults by landline and cell phones from Oct. 10-13. The registered voter sample was 920 people, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, and the likely voter sample was 740, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points. – Politico – World News Report via EIN News
