US POLL: Clinton leads Trump in opinion poll
Democratic Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton has pulled ahead of Donald Trump after the first presidential debate, according to a new national poll.
Clinton earns 47 percent support against 42 percent support for trump in the CNN/ORC survey released on Monday afternoon.
Clinton’s support climbed slightly after the debate from a neck-and-neck match-up last month.
Another national poll from CBS news also shows Clinton with a slight lead, 45 percent vs. 41 percent.
Nearly two-in-three Americans who watched the debate last week told CNN that Clinton won the debate, compared to only a quarter who said that trump won the debate.
A series of battleground state polls from Quinnipiac today showed tight races with races in north Carolina, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania within the margin of error.
