Trump Comes Out Ahead In Ohio After Vulgar Video Comments, Second Debate


Donald Trump continues his lead in a new CNN/ORC poll of Ohio voters, following the second presidential debate and the release of a 2005 video where he makes offensive comments about women.

Trump leads Hillary Clinton by three points, 50-47, among likely Ohio voters in the poll.

When third-party candidates are included, Trump comes out four points ahead, 48-44, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 4 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

The businessman’s lead in Ohio is similar to his four-point lead, 50-46, when CNN/ORC last surveyed the Buckeye State in September. In the four-way race, he led by five points, 46-41, with Johnson at 8 percent and Stein at 2 percent.

The CNN/ORC poll was conducted Oct. 10-15 among 774 likely Ohio voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election in Ohio shows Clinton leading Trump, 47.3 to 44.7.
