Clinton Leads By Double-Digits In New National Poll

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.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 47 to 41.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
