Hillary Clinton comes out ahead by 10 points in a new poll of likely voters nationwide from Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Clinton bests Donald Trump in the ballot, 50-40, in a head-to-head match.

The former Secretary of State maintains the 10-point lead from Fairleigh Dickinson University’s last poll in late July, where she led Trump 42-32, with Libertarian Gary Johnson behind at 9 percent.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University poll was conducted via automated telephone poll Sept. 28-Oct. 2 among 788 likely voters nationwide, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.
