Clinton Jumps To Double-Digit Lead Over Trump In National Tracking Poll

Hillary Clinton widened her lead over Donald Trump to 10 points in the NBC/SurveyMonkey national tracking poll released Tuesday morning.

Clinton’s lead jumped by two points from a 50-42 lead in last week’s tracking poll to a 51-41 lead this week.

She still has a six point lead over Trump when third-party candidates are added to the question. The results then were Clinton 44, Trump 38, Libertarian Gary Johnson 10, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein 4.

NBC News/Survey Money polled 11,480 registered voters online August 1-7 with a margin of error plus or minus 1.2 percentage points.

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.
