Hillary Clinton keeps a double-digit lead ahead of Donald Trump in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted several days after the initial shock from a 2005 video showing the businessman’s vulgar comments about women.

Clinton leads by 10 points, 51-41, among likely voters polled Oct. 10-13.

Her lead expands to 11 points, 48-37, when third-party candidates are included, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

Days before, when NBC/WSJ conducted the poll just after the release of the video, Clinton led by 10 points, 50-40, in a head-to-head match, and by nine points, 46-37, with Johnson at 8 percent and Stein at 2 percent, in a four-way match.

The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted Oct. 10-13 via live telephone interview among 905 likely voters, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 47.6 to 42.3.
