Poll: Clinton Up 28 Percent With Female Voters
Slate – Hillary Clinton has made clear inroads with women since the Democratic National Convention while Donald Trump is increasingly relying on white men for his base of support, which appears to be rapidly shrinking. Clinton has notably improved her standing with college-educated white women, leading Trump by 19 points with that group, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll. Thanks to that gain, Clinton now trounces Trump 58-35 percent with women. Trump’s clear advantage is among white men without college degrees as he enjoys a 40-point lead with that group.
Nationally, Clinton leads Trump by eight points, double the four-point lead that Clinton had over Trump in July. Significantly, Clinton’s advantage over Trump remains the same even when third-party candidates are added to the mix.
