Latest AP-GfK Poll Shows Hillary Clinton With 14-Point Lead Nationally Over Donald Trump

Democrat Hillary Clinton appears on the cusp of a potentially commanding victory over Donald Trump, if the trend continued, and it is fueled by solid Democratic turnout in early voting, massive operational advantages and increasing enthusiasm among her supporters.  Meanwhile, Trump’s brand and businesses are collapsing, with his supporters not being able to afford his products and services.  Which is why Trump spent most of Wednesday off the campaign trail and trying to promote his failed Washington, D.C. hotel, which he’s had two grand openings for in two weeks. 

A new Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday finds the Democratic nominee has grabbed significant advantages over her Republican rival with just 12 days left before Election Day. Among them: consolidating the support of her party and even winning some Republicans.


Overall, the poll shows Clinton leading Trump nationally by a staggering 14 percentage points among likely voters, 51-37. While that is one of her largest margins among recent national surveys, most show the former secretary of state with a substantial national lead over the billionaire businessman.

The AP-GfK poll finds that Clinton has secured the support of 90 percent of likely Democratic voters, and also has the backing of 15 percent of more moderate Republicans. Just 79 percent of all Republicans surveyed say they are voting for their party’s nominee.
