Clinton holds wide lead with young voters while Trump polls worse than Nixon

WATCH: Donald Trump sows fears of vote fraud -- but are those fears entirely groundless?

Donald Trump is slipping in the polls, and he's absolutely blowing it with young voters.

Hillary Clinton is beating Trump 56 percent to 20 percent among voters under 35, according to a USA Today poll.

If those figures hold true, it'll be the third straight presidential election where Democrats beat Republicans by at least 10 percentage points, which would be the first time that's happened since the data became widely available in 1952.

If there was a gun to my head, I'd say Trump. ... He is better than Hillary.

Trump's numbers are even lower than the estimated 32 percent former President Richard Nixon would have gotten, according to Gallup data.

And some of the young people that do support Trump aren't too enthusiastic about it.

At least 50 percent of people surveyed said their view of Trump worsened after the Republican National Convention.

She is very good on policy. She is very bad at giving speeches and interacting with people.

Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders attracted many young voters. But despite the vocal "Bernie or Bust" movement, 72 percent of Sanders supporters surveyed now say they will vote for Clinton. Meanwhile, 11 percent plan to vote for Trump.

However, some of that Clinton support isn't very enthusiastic.

Trump believes he would be beating Clinton by 20 percent if not for the media.
