The first polls of likely voters since the explosive release last week of a tape of comments Republican nominee made about women on an Access Hollywood bus show a major jump in his opponent's support.
The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, which was conducted on Saturday and Sunday — after the tape was made public but before the second presidential debate — shows Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with 46 percent support compared to Trump's 35 percent.
In that same four-way matchup, Libertarian Gary Johnson has 9 percent support, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein is at 2 percent.
When Clinton and Trump are in a head-to-head contest, Clinton's support stands at 52 percent and Trump's is at 38 percent. Her lead among all registered voters is 13 points, "her largest advantage over Trump since the poll began testing the pair last September," NBC reported.
Yesterday, a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, also conducted after the tape leaked, showed Clinton leading Trump in a four-way race by 4 percentage points — 42 percent to 38 percent.
