Despite a terrible few weeks for her campaign, Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in a new NBC/WSJ national poll.
Clinton and Trump polled at 43 percent and 37 percent respectively. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson polled at 9 percent while Green Party candidate Jill Stein came in at 3 percent.
Clinton blows Trump out of the water with black voters 81 percent to 7 percent. Approximately 51 percent of women prefer Clinton to Trump's 37 percent. Among young voters aged 18 to 34, 50 percent prefer Clinton while 34 percent prefer Trump.
The Donald, however, has the edge over Clinton when it comes to men, where 46 percent prefer him to 44 percent preferring Clinton. Trump also has the advantage when it comes to white voters. Forty-nine percent prefer the Republican candidate whereas 43 percent prefer his Democratic opponent.
Trump yesterday: "My poll numbers with African Americans—they're going, like, high."— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) September 21, 2016
NBC/WSJ poll today: Clinton leads 81-7% among blacks.
Maybe Trump should take a look at these latest numbers...
Should I trust these new polls? Related: I don't trust (or know) anyone who would see an unknown number, answer the phone, and then engage.— Max Silvestri (@maxsilvestri) September 21, 2016
Despite the big names attached, some online have noted how absurd polling seems.
