New CNN Post-Debate Poll Shows Hillary +5

This is the second major poll showing a nice bounce for Hillary today. The Hill reports:

A new CNN/ORC poll finds Hillary Clinton opening up a 5-point lead over Donald Trump since last week’s presidential debate. Clinton leads Trump 47 percent to 42 percent with likely voters in the CNN/ORC survey released Monday. A CNN/ORC poll conducted before the contest found Trump leading her by 2 points, 45 percent to 43 percent.

In the new poll, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson grabs 7 percent, followed by Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein with 2 percent. One percent picked no one and 1 percent had no opinion.

Pollsters also found Clinton’s lead grows when voters were asked to imagine her and Trump as the only candidates listed on their state’s ballot. Fifty-one percent back Clinton in that scenario, while 45 percent said Trump and 3 percent picked neither. One percent answered “other.”
